Happy New Year, Cats and Dogs! Oh, And More Fireworks.

Happy New Year from Tiny Terror Shih Tzu.
The 31st was a busy day for us. Rin and Whitey are such scaredy cats that we had to take safety precautions so that they have safe houses during the fireworks. And as per my previous post, you already have an idea where Rin decided to take shelter from the fireworks.

All those preparations...from making sure that all the possible safe houses are clean to boarding up a doghouse in case we needed to confine them when they get too scared.
Yet all those contingency plans have not prepared me for this tiny dog's curiosity. Not only is Chooey fearless in the face of whistle bombs  but she also escorts anybody who lights them up and even comes close to it while sparks fly out of curiosity.

If I had 9 lives, Chooey probably had me shed 5 of them because of the many heart attacks I got from her messed up doggy instincts.

Next Agenda...

I was emailed recently by TheDogWalkingCo asking for help in sharing their new campaign. To give you guys a brief explanation of what this is, please play the Youtube video above. If you believe in their cause, kindly drop by their website (through the link above) and check it out.


  1. Yeap, we had fits over the fireworks also, had to sit in Dads lap, both of us, then lay next to him very tightly in bed later, Hope you had a most Happy New Year.

  2. Chooey sounds so much like the canine version of Tutu. Tutu isn't afraid of anything either!

  3. Hey guys! Thanks for visiting! Our Mom said the holidays were busy and kept her opposable thumbs all to herself. We like your safe houses for the the fireworks. Wish we had one of those!

  4. oh, if only we could be as fearless as Chooey! Thankfully our area is pretty quiet in terms of New Year celebrations.

    The DogWalkingCo is a good idea!

  5. We too are glad the boom booms are over. I took to hiding behind the sofa and the Peeps turned the TV up to drown the noise. Happy New Year. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Poor Rin! We don't like fireworks here, either. Chooey, you are like a super hero, who fears nothing. Be careful, though. You don't want to give Haopee a heart attack!

    Happy New Year, dear friends. We love you!

  7. I am a big scardy cat-- or scardy pug!
