Bloody fireworks

According to the Evening Times, 70 shit-scared pet dogs have been found roaming the streets of Glasgow this week already, freaked out by the constant barrage of fireworks. We’re lucky – Megan, destroyer of shoes, isn’t scared of anything – but our in-laws’ dog is bloody terrified of the things, and this time of year means weeks of terror for him (and a lot of work for everyone around him – scared dogs are capable of amazing things when they’re determined to escape).

It’s not just the ASBO element that’s responsible, either. They’ve been going off in gardens for several days now, as people celebrate key events on the calendar such as, er, Tuesday. It’s just a bit of fun, apparently. No harm done.

Bollocks to that: it’s really not funny, and it’s really not fair. Maybe dog owners should unite, wait for the culprits to leave for work/school/whatever the following morning, and pelt them with several weeks’ worth of dog shit. It’s just a bit of fun! we’d cackle. No harm done!

  1. I haven’t seen my cat when fireworks have been going off (she’s usually snoozing somewhere anyway) so I don’t know how it affects her, but when we used to have a dog she would go crazy at the fireworks.

    It really is a shame on the pets with the fireworks, so tell me where and when to start and I’ll bring a few bags of cat litter :)

  2. I’ve got two cats, one of them has taken his annual holiday somewhere in the bottom of the wardrobe, while the other one spent the entire night staring out of the kitchen window from on top of the fridge loving the flashes and bangs, not even a bowl full of kitty-grub meaty-chunks could persuade him away!

    When I said megan wasn’t afraid of anything, I spoke too soon. Out in the garden last night, mortar goes off right above her, cue several hours of utter panic. Bah.

    We have trainspotters being hassled with anti terrorism legislation for taking photos yet for some reason any f**kwit can purchase what is essentially gunpowder and let them off whenever and wherever they please (no one enforces the law about letting the bastard things off after 10pm). c**ts.

    It’s already been proven that proper terrorists don’t use explosive material. It’s not bombers they recruit – its graphic designers
