The Dog Days of Summer: 9 Cute Dogs Braving the Summer Solstice

This week has been ridiculous for the heat — like crazy humid and I am so over it already. I hear that this heat wave is supposed to last a bit longer, so I guess I may as well just try and get used to it and keep as comfortable as I can.

Our dog friends have an interesting way of keeping cool — they use their tongue to pant. The air passes over their saliva and cools them down and on super hot days like we’re getting with the summer solstice, you will see a lot of doggies with their tongues out.

Click through to see 9 cute dogs who are staying cool with their tongues out:
