18 Pets Celebrate the 4th of July

Who is looking forward to the 4th of July? As a Canadian, we had our first summer celebration earlier this week as we celebrated Canada Day, but I do know that the 4th of July is a fun and well-loved holiday to my U.S neighbors.

What’s not to love too? You get to have amazing firework shows, BBQ’s filled with amazing food and good company, town parades, and ring in the summer season. It’s a big deal of fun and, since our pets are part of our family, they like to be a part of the family fun too.

There are some safety concerns to keep in mind if you’re going to have your pets out for your 4th of July celebrations and some pets may have some anxiety over firework noises. That doesn’t mean our pets can’t celebrate with us, we just need to be aware and sensitive to their moods. Some dogs and cats get really into the celebrations with us and a picture can tell a thousand words.
