“Hunter of Wolves…..Just don’t set off a firecracker”

Last night was rough…… there is always that one neighbor on the block that enjoys pyrotechnics.

Aura Lea, my wolfhound, has lived through several July celebration noises, without any bother.   This year, for some unknown reason, she was terrified of fireworks and firecrackers.   Not good when a 120+ lb. hound tries desperately to squeeze her entire body on to your lap.   We were totally dumbfounded and unprepared for this……no calming shirts…..do they even make them in wolfhound sizes?????

To add to the chaos, our collie picked up on Aura Lea’s anxiety and tried to squeeze along side her on to our laps.

During the 15 minute lull in the din between our neighbor’s ignitions…..we would finally get them to settle down…….then off the firecracker went………and off Aura Lea went into a panic……

There was no loud incident that might have triggered this anxiety between last July and now…….it’s a mystery to me.

The bigger mystery is how these hunters of wolves can be such big and total babies…..something you find out when you share your home and heart with them.  This huge beast of ancient warriors…..coming to my 5″ tall body for protection……Luckily, all is calm today…….no wolves, no warriors, no firecrackers…..which my wolfhound looks to me to conquer.Aura Lea and me Gettysburg 1
