Is the Asphalt Too Hot-Hot-Hot for a Walk?

 

It's summer. Buddy needs exercise and it's hot out.  No problem--take some water for both of us and slip on a tank top, shorts and running shoes.  Something we may forget to consider, though, is what about Buddy's feet? It's easy for us to forget how HOT the pavement gets, even on a temperate, sunny day.  

This short and informative article by poochandclaws.com gives some easy tips and tricks on how to know if the pavement is too hot for Buddy's tootsies!  Stay cool!

Cool treats for HOT days!

 

It's super easy to whip up a few stuffed frozen treats for Fido during the hot dog days of summer! There are tons of ideas out there, and here are a few we love:

First, you need something to stuff! A Kong or a hollowed-out center bone works great.

Then stuff it with one or more of the following:

  • canned pumpkin
  • raw or canned dog food
  • unsweetened applesauce
  • plain yogurt
  • mashed banana mixed with a touch of peanut butter
  • or your pet's favorite mushy treat!

 

For an even easier treat, try a frozen OC Raw bone or some Bear and the Rat Ice Cream--both available at either of our End of the Leash locations  :)
