The middle of summer is officially here and I am here to tell you, IT’S HOT! While living in Las Vegas is great in the winter because we don’t usually get SNOW, the summer months can be hard on a beautiful dog!
But there are wonderful advantages to the warm weather months. Here is an old photo of me with my sister enjoying a nice afternoon at The District. Not every restaurant allows dogs…. Not even the World’s Most BEAUTIFUL dog! Sometimes, it’s just nice to sit outside and soak up some sun. Just be careful you don’t stay out too long! And always make sure you have a big bowl full of water!
Beautiful dogs need accessories that hold up during the hot summer months, too. Dogs shouldn’t wear neck scarves because even a little piece of fabric can make them hotter.
You might also want to eat a bit less each day. It’s harder to go for those heavenly long walks, so where are those extra calories going to go? They might just land on your doggie RUMP! OMG!! We certainly don’t want that!!! You want to be a healthy dog, so make sure you move as much as possible. Some dogs go swimming – but that’s not for me! I don’t know what that would do to my beautiful dog coat!
Watch what you eat and be sure to play in the house as much as you can so you stay fit. It won’t be this hot for long. Try to enjoy the summer. Fall will be here soon and then we can play more, eat more, and sleep more. Ahhh – it sure is a dog’s life!
