His time with me has been good for us both. He has been, from the moment I got him to this moment, one of the sweetest, most loving dogs I've ever had. He has been the strong noble silent type. So I know this constant whimpering is a sign that he isn't that strong anymore.
Perhaps the timing of this crisis is a good thing, because the most difficult time of the year is rapidly approaching. Cyrus is terrified of loud noises that sound like gunfire. So the fourth of July and the twenty fourth of July are two times of huge fireworks extravaganza's of human stupidity and economic waste on an ostentatious scale. I don't approve. Cyrus is just undone by the noise. He will not have to go through that again this year. But I'll never hear fireworks that I don't think of his terror and the terror of so many other dogs when idiots are burning money with a big bang.
