The family was surprised when they heard a knocking on their door so late at night.
This might be not surprising and fun for others, but it makes a lot of pets apprehensive. Pet owners are concerned about this too. They know their pets will become very anxious or spooked by the sound of fireworks.
This was the case for Rajah and her fur-parents.
It was days before July 4 when fireworks started to go off in their neighborhood in South Carolina. Rajah, a lab-Catahoula Leopard Dog mix, was scared by the sound of fireworks that she darted off outside and ran away.
Her owners Mary Lynn Whitacre and Ryan Washick, tried to run after her, but they couldn’t get her.
They searched for her for hours. They even posted it on Facebook and asked people for help in case they find her. Mary Lynn posted that Rajah was probably just around their area in Simpsonville and Woodruff Roads near Heritage Lakes.
They also said that she was microchipped, and her tag has phone numbers.
The couple drove around the area, too, wanted to find Rajah at the side of the street. After hours of searching, they gave up and went back home. It was a tiring night for Mary Lynn and Ryan, and they were hoping that tomorrow would be better.
But they got the biggest surprise at 3 AM.
When the couple went to the door, they saw a sad and devastated Rajah who looked like she was sorry about what happened. Mary Lynn and Ryan, however, just laughed it off.
They were also surprised how Rajah learned how to ring the doorbell.
