poor guy has an evander holifield sized chunk of ear missing and now is stressed... lol... ah well... happy new year!
Yeah dogs really don't like it.
It started at around 3:30 pm here and it got gradually worse through the night, I tried keeping him close to me all night sitting in sofa with him etc., but every time a big bang came, he got up and ran in to my bedroom, which was pitch black with a blanket over the window and at one point he got so stressed he started to lick his face for 2 min straight.
So I ended up sitting in my bedroom in the dark from midnight until 2 am, he ended up being completely exhausted and fell a sleep during the fireworks and at 2am I was finally able, to find a hole, where we could go out for a pee, where I had to force him to do it quickly before the next big bang.
When we got back up he just collapsed and fell a sleep, I on the other hand was awake until 5 am, due to fireworks right out side my building.
So I have decided next year new years is going to be somewhere out in the middle of nowhere.
