We asked for it, now it is here! Summer has settled into Central Oregon. This photo was taken several years ago when I owned Biscuits of Bend, to advertise dogwear. Back then I lived on the west side and my dogs didn’t have their own personal water feature, but they sure loved their little blue wading pool! In this pic, my corgi girl Brook is joined by Border Terrier bud Cede, and the wondrous pug Oscar. Don’t forget that when the temps shoot up, your dogs’ activity level may drop, and they should be offered LOTS of fresh water all the time. On hot days here at TB&B, the boarders spend lots of time wading in the pond, and take many play-breaks to just lounge in the cool grass. We all try to take a little siesta in the heat of the day. Enjoy the “dog days” while they are here!
