For the most part, the Fourth of July is a pleasant time to be a dog. Free BBQ scraps, lots of people to scratch your ears and run around with you...what could be better? But once the sun goes down, it's a different story. 

This video from the Late Show With Stephen Colbert imagines what dogs might say to us about our annual tradition of fireworks. It's more intense than you might think.

Happy Fourth of July to you and yours. And if pet anxiety continues to be an issue, perhaps you should talk to your vet about cannabis.
