Tag Archives: dogs in summer

Just a wee bit of common sense in the heat, please!

Just came home from my son’s baseball tournament, and I was appalled at the number of people who brought their dogs.  It’s 88 degrees outside with a heat index of 99.  We were trying to keep the kids under umbrellas when they were off the field, and pumping them with water at every chance.

I have a question for those of you who brought your precious pooches:  Does your dog enjoy baseball THAT much that he or she had to come to the tourney?  There is no flipping way I would subject my dogs to that kind of heat for no real reason.  Unbelievable!

(OK.  I’ll get off my soapbox now.)

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
