It’s hard to believe the summer is almost over! The time has just flown by and before I know it I will be reaching for my sweater and watching the leaves change color.
The summer is such a fun time for people and our pets. I don’t have a dog myself, but when the weather is warm, I see them outside enjoying the sun and it’s hard to find a dog that’s not happy to be outdoors. Dogs just really seem to love their summer!
In celebration of the warm weather coming to an end, I’ve compiled some photos of wonderfully happy dogs enjoying the dog days of summer.
