Fun in the sunHappy first day of summer! Seems like a great time to remind all of us to keep our dogs cool when the temperatures go up. Because, yes, they can get heatstroke. Here’s a nifty graphic from the Texas Veterinary Medical Foundation. Click on it to view it full-size.

Good day, and good dog!

They say you’re supposed to let your kids help in the garden so they will want to eat veggies. Wonder if that works with dogs?

Rest Well, Peter

Peter

Peter Buongiovanni 3/15/73 – 6/11/18

Those of you who have been with doggies.com and breeders.net for a long while may remember Peter Buongiovanni, who was a co-owner of the company until just a few years ago. It is with great sadness that I announce Peter’s passing at about 4 pm today. He was a wonderful photographer, web designer, and graphic artist. He’s the one who designed the site and who hired me way back when to write this blog.

In the beginning, I interacted with Peter only through email, but felt an instant kinship with him. At some point I got it into my head that I needed to meet face-to-face with Peter and a couple of his friends (for whom I had also done some freelance work), so I drove from Ohio to Ontario. I stayed in a nearby bed and breakfast, and was looking forward to going into the city for a cookout at Peter’s house, followed by an event downtown. As I was getting ready to go, my B-and-B hosts said they’d always wanted to attend this particular event, so I invited them to come into the city with me.

Peter didn’t even blink when I showed up with two extra guests for the cookout – that’s the kind of person he was. So gracious and giving. He loved dogs, and he loved life. His death leaves a big hole in my heart.

Rest in peace Peter. I will miss you forever.
