Safety Note:

Please, please leave Fido and Rover securely at home. The 4th of July is The Worst Day of the year for your family's Best Friends. The shotgun brigade at the Danville parade and the San Ramon fireworks are just not good places for Spot and Bowser.

Not a year goes by without seeing a panicked hound slipping its collar and taking off for parts unknown. The "lucky" ones make it to an uncertain, terrifying fate at a shelter -- others end up under the wheels. Every year. Some benighted shelters pre-kill for space, knowing they'll be deluged with post-4th strays.

Exercise your canine friends early, and leave them at home, preferably with some music on to dull the noise.

Thanks!
