This is my big dog. Below and to the right is my little dog. Since my wife and kids left for the long weekend, they have been no more than three steps away from me except when I left the house.

Unfortunately, the big dog has an issue with fireworks. Here she is reacting to firecrackers going off several blocks away. When they get closer, she starts barking. My vet’s solution? Benadryl and chamomile tea. I’m not sure if they are for the dog or for me.
