Hey neighbors… as you make plans for 4th of July- don’t forget to make plans for your dog too. We have at least one lost dog in this neighborhood alone EVERY year… there’s many more in Santa Rosa. Don’t leave your dog alone in the yard… it doesn’t matter if that’s what they’re used to. Dogs are unpredictable when there are fireworks exploding. Keep them in the house, put on some white noise or make other arrangements. Make sure they have ID tags on- or take a sharpie out and write your phone number on their collar. Take a current photo of your dog too.  This is important.
