A friend asked me to share this from a local Facebook page:

As many of you know, tomorrow is a big day for our community as President Bush is laid to rest. I know many people will be lining the procession route but please take a few precautions for your pups before you head out.

The normal game day flyover consists of just a few planes and the noise is tremendous. Tomorrow there will be an unprecedented 21 naval fighter jets flying over to give President Bush the send off he so deserves. For your pups that means a ton of noise that will be heard and felt all over BCS.

Here are some tips to make the event less stressful and safer for your pet:
*Treat this event the same way you'd treat a fireworks display.
*Bring them inside before the procession starts at 3:45 and close off doggy doors. Frightened dogs run and pay no attention to their surroundings including moving vehicles.
*If your pet needs to be medicated for fireworks, medicate them tomorrow afternoon. That will help reduce some of the anxiety.
*If you will not be home during the flyover leave a radio or tv on to help block some of the noise
*Give your dog a good chew or stuffed Kong to keep them distracted.
*Kennel them if you won't be home to prevent any destruction if they do get worked up.
Feel free to share these tips with any friends that have animals!

Did anyone see the dog bolt across the tracks on the live feed in Millican? It had to be close to getting a targeting call courtesy of the train.

Fair enough.

Either you feel that sentiment strongly enough that you were moved to post it, or you're like any forum troll who comes in to the playground to kick some sand around and see if you can get some laughs.

That said, I'm an adult who made the decision to start this thread with the full knowledge that there's a chance of such replies. (and that these replies will garner appreciation) There are also pets who haven't been treated humanely in their pasts and are terrified by the unexpected.

We can all play together, it's a public forum.
