My weekend has been pretty quiet (well during the day anyway)with both girls away and time spent catching up on household tasks and planning for the coming week.
I don't think anyone who lives in any part of the U.K can have missed that this Saturday was bonfire night with firework noise all around us. We haven't been to any displays this year but have had nights in with Sky the collie for company. Sky is a working dog and lives outside in a stable but I am afraid my rules soften around bonfire night and I allow her into the house. She like many dogs is terrified by the firework bangs.
Typical collie when the rules are bent she is the first to make the most of it and headed for the lounge and picked herself a comfy chair...
I am not sure that my heart is quite that soft!
Meanwhile Monty with his gun dog genes is not in the least bit bothered by the noise. He in fact wasn't at all sure that she should be allowed in and thought he would rather be out.
However a compromise was found and they settled at opposite ends of the room.
What about your pets and possibly even your children? How do they react to the noise? We live in the country so I can only imagine what it must be like in urban areas.
Have a good week everyone and may it be a peaceful one for you and your loved ones.
