Here’s my lovely wife, Jennifer with this week’s main blog:
As Memorial Day marked the unofficial start to the Summer season last weekend, it’s time to start thinking about climbing temperatures and ways to beat the heat. Humans aren’t the only ones who enjoy warmer days and extra activities… You know how much your dog loves a day of Frisbee in the park, longer walks, maybe a ride in the family boat or a swim at the cottage lake.
If you are a fan of water sports in the summer and your dog likes to join you, please pay extra attention to the safety issues that surround these fun times. Most people assume that all dogs can swim and that nothing dangerous can happen to their pet on a family outing. That may not be the case.
From fresh drinking water to boating safety, PetPlace.com offers sound advice for making sure your ENTIRE family enjoys summer safely.
Now, quickly finish reading this fantastic blog including those canines that made… oops, that’s Kevin’s line. Anyhow, finish reading Barking Lot because your best friend is waiting for you to go for a walk-play Frisbee-fill the water dish-turn on the air conditioning-play ball-fill the food dish-give a belly rub, etc. Have fun!
