Molly, my mini-poodle paniced tonight with the fireworks. Honestly, this little tiny town sounded like a war zone. I gave her the benadryl. She still didn't like the fireworks, but she stopped panting and her heartbeat slowed waaaaay down so she could rest. What a relief it was. I felt so bad for her. A couple of people mentioned tough love, that is not an option when a poor little dog is so terribly upset. She is sleeping peacefully now, and I am going to join her... Everyone have a great night!
