This Dog Was Scared of Fireworks So His Owners Set Him Up With Some Chill Dog Videos

Dogs: they're just like us

Joey is a six-year-old golden retriever in California who just happens to have a fear of fireworks.

Owner Emily Kuang captured a short video of the blissfully entertained dog and posted it to Twitter, and it became quite a hit with canine-loving audiences.
