Join us as we celebrate the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 in Treviso, Italy! Treviso is (probably like most Italian towns) a HUGE party for New Year’s Eve. There were at least three stages set up in town and it was going to be a fun night! Until we realized that James the Poodle is terrified of loud music and fireworks!
We had reservations for a multi-course New Year’s Eve meal at Odeon Alla Colonna. On our walk to dinner, we passed two different stages where they were doing sound checks. The second stage had the band Alice & I Diapason and they were great!!! I was really excited to finish dinner after midnight and head back to hear them play. We decided to take a moment and dance to their sound check song. That is when we realized James didn’t like how loud the music was getting.
Our dinner was amazing and James had a taste of quite a few of the courses. At midnight we all stood up to cheer, hug and kiss which was fun – everyone in the restaurant was saying Happy New Year to each other like we had all known each other for years!
Then we headed outside where the fireworks were still going off and James was TREMBLING. More than anything I’ve ever seen. Poor little Poodle! So we headed back inside and waited for the fireworks to finish. The music did continue until about 2:30am and we could hear it from our apartment. But we cuddled James in bed and I was his thunder shirt! Poor James didn’t realize that 2018 is the Year of the Dog and he doesn’t need to be a terrified Poodle!
Happy New Year!
