When summer heats up, pets need our help to keep them safe, cool, and healthy. Here are some important ways you can keep your dog feeling their best this summer season. Thanks to Petcurean for sponsoring this post.
There is nothing like lying out, baking in the summer sun… add in a tummy rub and my dog AJ is in pure heaven.
Yes, my little hound loves the sunshine. On warm days, he stretches out on our driveway, getting a double hit of heat from lying on the hot cement with the sun beating down on him.
When I try to coax him inside, he looks at me with those eyes… “Mom, don’t be cruel. There is no way I am moving. Bathing in sunshine is where this hound belongs. Now stop this silly talk of going inside and start rubbing my tummy…”
But eventually, even my AJ will agree that the sun can get a little hot. Thirsty and overheated, he will pick himself up and retreat inside for a drink.
