No, we're not talking about the Will Smith movie :)   The Fourth of July is a day for Celebration, Excitement, Togetherness, and sometimes, some really great food! But as the sun sets and the fireworks come out, it gets to be a very loud and scary time for our fur-babies! Dogs may be upset by the light and noise of far-off celebrations or even the neighbors celebrating their freedom next door. More dogs run away on July 4th than any other day of the year.
