Our humans took to the skies last night for the 4th of July. And our mom took some pretty cool photos. They're up today on our mom's new humor blog, Life with a Physicist.

And guess what? When viewing fireworks from above, it's not always the skies that are illuminated. There's one photo in particular she just totally squeed over - it lit up the countryside below!

4th of July and Pet Safety

This evening, folks in the U.S. will be celebrating Independence Day.  And along with a nice three-day weekend, we get treated to the sights and sounds of tons of fireworks. But what's fun for humans can often be traumatic - sometimes tragic - for our pets.

Did you know more pets go missing on the Fourth of July than any other holiday?

Here are a few tips to help ensure your pets stay safe, healthy and happy this week:

Never take a pet to a fireworks display. Even the most even tempered animals can spook - and bolt! - at unfamiliar, loud noises.
And it's not as if we can explain to them what they're about to experience - all they would understand is that sudden, frightening loud noises are assaulting their tender ears!

And it's not okay to leave your pet in the car while attending a fireworks display, either. While the temperature outside is a comfortable 80 degrees, the temperature inside your car could reach as high as 120 - and this can prove fatal to your pet.

Provide a secure, comfortable, quiet place for your pet to rest while you're out.

You can encourage rest by participating in a fun, vigorous playtime before the fireworks begin. That way pup or kitty will have run off any nervous energy!

Consider turning on the TV, radio or even a fan for your pet. This creates "white noise" that may help minimize the sound of the fireworks.

And make sure your pet is identified, either by collar or microchip (or both!) so if they accidentally get away from you, their chances of recovery are greatly increased.
