Local dogs say they're taking advantage of the thunderstorms St. Augustine has recently experienced, and using them as a "Dry run" for the 4th of July.
"Anything loud. Thunder, motorcycles, police kicking in the neighbor's house. I just try to pretend it's all fireworks. I know I have to be training this time of year" says Bella, a doberman/lab mix and 6 year veteran of one of the most frightening holiday's on the k-9 calendar. "I'm trying to train the young one to stay down and keep calm. She freaks out the most."
