It's currently just under four hours until 2012 here on the East coast. Fireworks are already being shot off by those who are celebrating early. Of course, those of us with pets often must be concerned about the noise. I'm lucky enough to have a dog who isn't sound reactive, and who has only ever flinched at the sound of a cymbal crashing four feet from his head. He's never been bothered by fireworks, thunder, or the other loud noises that commonly scare dogs. By the way, 2012 will be the year that a certain handsome black Labrador turns seven years old. It's only a couple of weeks away now.
I hope everything goes smoothly for everyone else so that the you can ring in the new year without any incident. Here's to a 2012; may it be a good year for all. Celebrate and stay safe!
