Don't shoot your eye out

Ahhh... a paid holiday. Even though it is in the middle of the week and I will have to return back to work on Friday, I won't complain about a paid day off ever.


I hope that you and your family enjoy your (paid) holiday and stay safe! And always remember the reason for the holiday!

To help keep your pets safe on the Fourth, here are a few tips:

1. Do not use fireworks around your pets.  Not only are they ridiculously loud and they are probably terrified of them anyway, fireworks contain toxic chemicals.  Plus furry pets usually don't have their hair pulled back in a pony so you don't want to burn their luscious locks!

2. Do not use sunblock & insect repellants made for humans on your pets. Hopefully it already says it wasn't tested on animals, but these chemicals can get ingested by your pets licking their ass themselves and can cause nasty side effects.

3. Do not let your pets drink alcohol.  Like you would share! Pets can't handle their liquor like humans and alcohol can be toxic.
4. Do not feed your pets too much human food.  You know your pet's diet and what you usually feed them.  Any major changes in diet can cause vomitting and nausea.  Remember the foods that are toxic to dogs such as onions, grapes, raisins, and coffee.  I would recommend saving your dogs those rib bones, but NEVER feed a dog chicken bones!

5. Watch your pets.  Simple.  If you have a ton of people over, make sure they can't run out the front door.  If your pets are terrified of loud noises, make sure they have a safe and secure place to hide out. 

This is where I spent my July 4th last year - downtown Nashville.  The fireworks show was ah-mazing and the people watching was pretty awesome too, ha.  This year?  70% chance of rain so looks like we may be staying in with a Redbox & my crockpot.

Any good movies on Redbox? What are you doing for Independence Day?
