Well Kara, I spent last years countdown with Sierra in the Bathroom on the floor, flushing the toilet for 15 minutes and the blowdryer on full speed to drown the sound....Our bathroom is the most soundproof roomd due to its location....At the moment I was dead serious, now I can laugh about it, it must have been quite a sight hahaha, toys, chewies, treats on the floor between the sink the toilet and the bathtub hahaha!!!
LOL! I can picture that! If you end up doing it....PLEASE make a video!
And put your little funny captions on there too! hehe.
I'd want to go up to the bathroom with Sierra at countdown.......I hope that with having the whole family there, she might just have enough distractions....
I really don't want to go because of Sierra, but my mum will freak if she'd find out why.......last year I came up with a good excuse to stay at home...though my parents and sisters weren't exactly happy with me being a no-show......this year I couldn't find one....
I'll have to give Sierra maybe a higher dosage of the stuff that makes her drowsy.....so maybe she'll sleep through it......
Her heart rate goes bezerk with those loud bombs.....
Well.....MAYBE that will help her to be around more people and see that nobody else is worried about the unusual loud explosion sounds!?? I think she may have enough distraction there? Will there be any other dogs there? Hopefully...one that isn't bothered by it and Sierra can follow suit, ya know?
I'd be the same way! I just bailed out of my yearly 5 day business trip to Vancouver because of Gucci. I probably could've taken her, Canada is pretty dog-friendly, but I just said not this year, and my husband was like "Why not? The DOG?"! lol Yeah, I'm pretty predictable.
What are you going to try this year?
Ehh, probably nothing. I haven't really *celebrated* NYE since I was about 21 and used to drink and not get hungover back then! lol, Those days of no-hangovers...LONG gone! I can't even stay awake to watch the ball drop on TV!
We *might* hear some fireworks tonight, I can't remember how much we had last NYE because Gucci wasn't here, just 4th of July (BIG Firework night here in the US) A few years, we'd dress up and go out to dinner, but I think we are laying low this year. Too many drunk drivers and roadblocks out to deal with it.
New Years' Eve brings out all the people that only drink once a year and they puke all over the place. No..thank you! heh.
