Letter: Dog days
Dogs that are tethered alone in a yard for most of the day have a poor quality of life. Dogs are social creatures and need the companionship of others to thrive.
In this hot summer weather make sure that your dog has adequate shade and water to keep cool in the rising temperatures. Don’t be tempted to take it for a ride in the car with you unless you are prepared to use air conditioning and remain in the car with it. Cars heat up quickly, even in not so hot weather. It seems like common sense, but it is amazing how many folks need a seasonal reminder.
