Some pets are able to take fireworks in their stride. They can watch the displays with their families and remain calm, simply happy being with their people. Then there are dogs like my Bob. When fireworks go off, Bob believes that the world is coming to an end -- and that the only thing to do is climb onto my lap to shake and pant uncontrollably until the end comes. Thankfully, I've found a few different ways over the years to help my little buddy deal with this stressful time of year.
