Stephen Colbert Knows Why Your Dog Is Really Afraid Of Fireworks

Happy 4th!

July 4th may be one of your favorite days of the year, but there’s a good chance your pup absolutely dreads the fireworks-filled holiday.

And according to Stephen Colbert, it’s not for the reason you think.

The “Late Show” is on vacation over the holiday weekend, but the program uploaded a public service announcement on behalf of all dogs to its YouTube page on Monday. 

“There’s a common misconception that boom boom scary time bothers us because of our sensitive ears,” the pup says.

Check out the video above to find out the pup’s explanation.
