AUGUST 2010 Photo Challenge!

It's really HOT here these days!

Dog days of summer....... Definition:


1 : the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere
2 : a period of stagnation or inactivity

But where does the term come from? Why do we call the hot, sultry days of summer “dog days?”

"In the summer,Sirius, the “dog star,” rises and sets with the sun. During late July Sirius is in conjunction with the sun, and the ancients believed that its heat added to the heat of the sun, creating a stretch of hot and sultry weather. They named this period of time, from 20 days before the conjunction to 20 days after, “dog days” after the dog star. " ... taken from http://wilstar.com/dogdays.htm




Show us what your Hav looks like during these hot, summer days. Is he panting and flaked out on the lazy boy? Is she laying in the shade of your patio umbrella? Are they snacking on frozen Kongs and ice cream? Please share!!


Please keep the subject of your posts pertaining to this thread. Thank you!

Yup, staying in the shade is definitely a great way to stay cool. Looking good, Havs!!

We took our pups for their first swim in the big pool. We have been playing in a baby pool for the past several weeks, but today was the big day for getting wet. They all did great, and none of them seem to develop a fear for the water as they all kept coming back to the side. Needless to say, there was lots of praise and treats involved.

I especially like the photo of Willow pool side, showing off how skinny and little she really is!

Holy cow - no one warned me what it would be like to groom Willow and all her hair after the big dunk. Luckily she is accepting grooming a bit more. The last photo is Willow after her post swim brushing.
