The family was wondering who on earth was at their door in the middle of the night.
This might be cool and fun for others, but it makes a lot of pets anxious. Pet owners are worried about this too. They know their pets will become very agitated 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 spooked 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 lost 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, hoping to find Rajah at the side of the street. After hours of searching, they surrendered 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 sulking 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.
