Summer Time Furry Fun!

Summer is in full swing. The dog days of summer are upon us. It is very hot. The state of Texas is a great place to be in June, due to the many stunning things to do. In the frenzy of activity to pack up your family and your supplies, things that should be high priorities may find themselves to be overlooked due to the variance from routine. 

So, the trunk of the car is full – you’ve got your kayak, the dog food, clean up bags, your yoga mat, the dog bowls, treats, your bags, your favorite coffee, your kids’ bags, all the favorite DVDs and bedtime blankets. Pretty much all the basic stuff for the last camping trip, right? 

But, if you’re headed for a swim or a splash, don’t forget your dog’s life jacket! You probably already think I'm a nut. On lake trips as a child, I remember some people thinking it was weird for kids to wear life jackets, and it was truly unheard of for a dog to wear one! Times have changed completely. I always had one dog that loved to swim and fetch Maverick and Dash that only liked to dip his paws in. So, when Dash was big enough to go to the lake, he always had a life jacket because we were afraid he'd fall in.

Since then, we’ve been through lots and lots of life jackets for both of them, and we’ve learned a lot along the way. 

Thankfully, these days society has realized the value of safety for our dogs, and life jackets for dogs have come a LONG way!
