Dixie's views on firework phobia

Hi! It's me, Dixie!  I wanted to wish all of my fans a happy holiday weekend.  I know what you are thinking though.  You are saying, "Dixie, Why do you look so concerned on a weekend of BBQ fun?"  Well, I am afraid that I have a case of firework phobia. Although this is common for dogs, divas and non-divas alike, it appears that my humans did not take the appropriate steps to insure that I would escape this predicament.  According to the leading dog health websites, it was important for my humans to carry out several steps of desensitization.  My sources say that they were supposed to pair sounds similar to fireworks with yummy treats, cuddle time, or games.  My treat/cuddle/game schedule has been fairly typical this week without any special auditory bombardment designed to prepare me.  So due to no fault of my own I am having difficulty finding my firework mojo.  Please don't let this ruin your celebrations, maybe just send me some yummy treats...that should help.  Your unprepared diva-Dixie 


  1. poor poor Dixie! Life is so tough sometimes. Hope the fireworks didn't get-cha.

  2. Amen, sister! I hate those things. Makes me think somebody in the neighborhood in trouble! Love and miss you! Chico

  3. Hey Chico! How have you been, dude?
