When somebody says that they're looking forward to the dog days of summer, I think..."me too". Summer in Gladwyne is pretty mellow, most people are enjoying trips with family and children, even the dogs go on vacation. But even on those mellow dog days of summer, I can keep myself busy thinking about making somebody's dog or cat feel better.
Spring break is this week, so the dog days of summer cannot be far behind. Make sure that you are ready to take advantage of long weekends, have a supply of your furry friend's essentials at the ready. Bring his usual food with you. It is a good idea to take his own bowls and dog bed so that he settles in on vacation right away. If he isn't coming, plan ahead. Make sure he doesn't need any vaccinations and make sure he is not due for a dose of Frontline Plus before dropping him off at the kennel. You don't want to bring home any unwanted fleas.
My first dog days tip: don't let your dog know that you are up in the middle of the night like I am right now, he'll want to go outside, and it might be raining.
