Thanks for the great tips. Lets hope people will use them, to many pets are lost during this holiday due to irresponsible owners.

I'll be medicating one of my dogs. She has to be medicated for the weeks before & after the 4th, since there are so many inconsiderate humans in the area.

I can't stand it when people bring their dogs to public events like this. They end up humping my leg and either whizzing or crapping all over the area where I'm seated. Leave Fido at home this year and focus on the parade. All of the men and women who died for this country didn't do so in order for animals to let loose everywhere on the most important day of the year. It's disrespectful to their memory to bring Rover to the celebration.
