The dog is terrified of fireworks. When one goes off she lies down on the bathroom floor and shakes uncontrollably for hours. I went and sat with her and the cat came too, moving from the sink to the toilet seat and I moved onto the floor. We sat together for a while, and then the cat took up a lookout outside the door. The dog was so touched she begged me to take her for a walk the next morning, barking and hopping up in the air, but by the time she'd put in her request it was too late (plus the cat would have wanted a walk too.) Let it not be said that no one has the dog's back when she is in distress.
