Dog Days of Summer

Now that August is here, the Dog Days of Summer are upon us. For most people, this means that it is so hot, the only smart thing to do is to lay in the shade, relax and do absolutely nothing! However, if you own a dog and want to do something together this weekend, the Dog Days of Summer have a totally different meaning.
