If you've been living under a rock, (and maybe that's a good idea right now...) it's safe to say we're in the thick of summer, and it's HOT outside!
New York, alone, is currently in the throes of its 4th, yes, 4th heatwave -- and it's only mid July!
When temps are this hot, it's absolutely vital that our pets stay cool and never are left in hot cars. Dogs can quickly become overheated, and their lives can be threatened quicker than most imagine. (Clickhere to see signs that your dog may be overheated.) It's also imperative that we find ways to keep our pets cool. That might include an outdoor of play with the hose or sprinkler, which most dogs either immediately love or immediately hate!
