Please sign in and tell us your dogs' names, breeds and ages and where you live.

It is the "dog days" of summer, and most of us are staying indoors keeping cool.  Did you do anything fun this weekend?

Barbara in West Michigan with 10 yr old Weimaraner, Comet, and 4 yr old MinPin/Beagle, Brownie.  Oh yeah...  and Keek the Kat.  We've barely hit 70 lately and today is a Thundershirt Day.  Feels more like October than August.  But the weekend was glorious weather, I had a girls' night out, cleaned some windows, relaxed and read.  No stress!

Oh say, can you see?

Laura here in VA with 7YO lab/mix, Cleo.

It's actually cool today; a little while ago it was pouring...and I'm sure it's going to do that on and off all day.  I read in the newspaper that many parts of the country are having cooler than normal temps....we are one of them.  But it's frustrating because I feel as if Summer will be gone so soon and I don't even get a chance to enjoy it!!

Nothing exciting at all....did a "lot" of pruning on Sunday...the bushes in my yard just get so out of control if I don't prune them every other week.  And....Yuck....this morning I was having breakfast and ran my fingers through my hair...I felt something on my scalp and found a tick!!  Now...I did the pruning on Sunday, washed my hair Sunday afternoon and again I have no idea how this tick found it's way to me.  Thankfully it wasn't imbedded....and I was able to remove it easily.  Not fun....

Terre from Arkansas with Jack and Taz, Toy Fox Terriers. Jack is 10 and Taz is 9. Didn't do much this past weekend. We've had lots of rain which I'm very happy about....but needless to say that means lots of mowing and weeding. I had dh do the weeding for me LOL!

Other than that...just went to church Saturday night and afterwards we ate out at our favorite Mexican place. I've got to get my fix of tamales ;-)
