Your dog does NOT like fireworks!
It does not enjoy carnivals, the lights, the loud sounds, all the strangers, and all the loud kids.
For those of you idiots who drag your poor dogs into the crowd of people gathered in or near the firework display on the 4th, get a clue, it isn't enjoying itself!
Another tip, guess what else...
Granite City has open container laws, and our park, and the area around the school where the fireworks display is located is also an open container free zone!
The firework display lasts about half an hour at best. So those of you beer guzzling, wife beater wearing, pajama & yoga pant sporting rednecks should just leave your coolers in the car for God sakes, it's a freakin half an hour. I think you can resist the urge to pop that next top for at least that long!
Last tip, guess what else...
Nobody gives a flying flip that you spent August's rent money on bottle rockets for the 4th of July. Guess what else, we also don't want to see them. So along with that dog, and that cooler, leave that sh*t at home and do that at your own house, apartment, or trailer court, instead of in a huge crowd of people wanting to enjoy the city's firework display, instead of dodging your cheap ass bottle rockets!
Now, let us all have a great 4th of July, and God bless!
