The Scotties do not have a real appreciation for this holiday. The three of them are in various states of fear. The loud noises from firecrackers has been going off for days. It is illegal in Florida, but there is always a way to get around something. you have yo promise that the fireworks will be used to keep birds from destroying crops. I don’t know much about birds, but I don’t think that they are busy looking for crops at late hours of the night. Composure, Thundershirts, and Xanax are part of the remedies for the shaking. In most cases they do not work. The last walk of the night will be even briefer than usual. Sophie is crawling out of the house and urinating 2 steps from the door. She is worse than Sidney. Shelby picks her cues up from the other two. It will be a long night.
