This was Lacey's first 4th of July with us and I was not sure how she would react. She is so scared of everything that I feared the worst. I didn't know if she would panic in the house or not (I definitely knew I was not going to let her outside during the "action"). We did not attended either of the fireworks shows that take place near us this year because I was too tired from a 10k race in the morning. It was an early bedtime for me so I was laying in bed when the first boom sounded outside. To my surprise Lacey quietly crawled up in bed between DH and I; something she never does. She creeped to the top of the bed and laid her head on my pillow. She wasn't panting heavy or shaking but she did keep pushing her under my hand so that my hand was resting on her shoulder. I just scratched her shoulder and kept saying "Its OK Lacey" or "what a brave girl you are". Shortly after the fireworks were over Lacey gave my hand a couple of kisses and she hopped off our bed to return to her own. If DH hadn't been there to confirm I would have sworn that I dreamed it all.
