Around this time every year, my family does our best to make our dog's 4th of July as painless as possible. She's not a fan of the bangs, booms, or bursts of light. She shakes, pants, and will not leave our sides. Every time we move, she moves. It's really bad for her. She's not alone, there are thousands of dogs throughout New Jersey experiencing the same thing. Here are 50 examples.

That's our dog, Daisy. She's a good dog, but she tends to be a bit skittish...especially during fireworks or thunderstorms. She's not the only one. The Toms River Police Department reminded us so today, "We'd like to remind everyone again that not only are commercial fireworks dangerous and illegal to set off, especially in a residential neighborhood, but something you may not have thought of is they can also be a trigger for combat veterans who suffer from PTSD, a child or adult with Autism, and pets. Our officers will be out this weekend with strict enforcement. Please be courteous to our heroes, youth and pets and obey the law. Enjoy the weekend and be safe!"

Without further adieu, here's the list. After, I'll explain why these 50 and why we chose puppy pictures.

Why those 50? Well, all dogs dislike loud sounds but these are really cute.  At least, I think they're cute. Why puppies? Well, this weekend is rainy and dreary and I thought pictures of pups may elevate your mood. Have a great 4th!
