Dog Days of Summer

© everydoghasastory

Do you know why these muggy, humid, and sultry days of  summer are called the Dog Days?

Well, here’s why.  From the first part of July to the middle of August, Sirius, also known as the Dog Star, rises at the same time as the sun! For most humans it is a time marked with sluggishness and inactivity.

Well, not in this household! These hot days make for fun in the sun and the water!

Dogs can feel the effects of the sun, so it’s important to keep their coat protected. Try this all natural grooming spray with sunscreen. This natural sunscreen protects your dog’s skin from the sun and its UV rays. Its non-greasy and non-oily formula protects skin and conditions it at the same time. Just spray and go!

  • Easy Spray on application
  • FDA Approved ingredients
  • Contains Aloe Vera
  • Non-Toxic
  • Non-Oily
  • Made in the USA

Now that we are all blathered up with sun screen….let’s go swimming!

Yes, Dalmatians love the water, too, but perhaps not as much as some of the other breeds. Our Bailey Boy is not much of a swimmer, but he loves to wade.  In fact, he could probably win awards for his expert wading ability.
