Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

School holidays have started, we are half-way through December and the Sunshine Coast's Christmas festivities are well under way, with the New Year's festivities just peeking their heads over the horizon. Many of these family-friendly celebrations are accompanied with spectacularly colourful firework displays. Unfortunately, these fabulous events are not always appreciated by everybody, especially our four-pawed family members.

I am not sure if you realised this, but there are approximately 53,000 dogs, that have the pleasure of calling the Sunshine Coast home and to these four-pawed family members, the 'going off with a bang' of the traditional firework displays can be extremely frightening.

Wise words of advice from the Council for Firework events:

Please keep pets indoors, close the curtains and turn the TV volume up, hopefully masking the fireworks' noise. Here's hoping that the TV's increased volume doesn't upset the neighbours;
Stay with pets, to keep them calm;
If for some reason, you won't be at home, consider using the services of a 'four-pawed' baby sitter or perhaps move your furry friends to a different location i.e. a safe place for the night;
If your dogs do accidentally escape during the fireworks displays - and I see many postings about 'missing' dogs, during and after firework displays - please make sure that your dog is microchipped and registration details are up to date, so you and your four-pawed buddy can be reunited;
A fashionable alternative for man's best friend.

The Sunshine Coast Council have our and our four-pawed friends' best interests at heart and have subsequently published a list of some of the upcoming community events that will have a fireworks display. Please note that besides these listed events, there may well be other events that are also having firework displays, in which case a quick browse of local publications in your area, would be advisable.
