Golden Brodie gulps on canine water

Summertime and the living is…hot…dog days hot.  Sure, it affects me more than I’d like to admit.  I think my golden coat…which I happen to like…it defines me in many ways…but my thick undercoat keeps me boiling hot during the last summer months.  How do I deal with it…shade…lots of water and of course, air-conditioning…as do you.

My humans…I see you walking around with bottled water in hand…bottled water in the car cup-holder…water…water…water.  So, my dog self gets a fresh bowl of water each AM and replenished often… based on my needs.  Gotta stay hydrated!  I even have a “Chill out” collar to wear outside on these super steamy days.

When dunked in cold water, this collar cools my dog skin around my neck.  I like it, although blue is not my color.

Paws up for this yellow lab messing with the hose water…a canine cool down.

Dogs and ice cream…Golden Brodie gives the scoop

Hey, it’s summer and I need to keep my dog self cool…so there’s nothing like seeing a small scoop of Dog Paws ice cream hit my dog bowl. Talk about disappearing…I can get that gone real quick.
But seriously…some dogs can eat ice cream…just gotta do your homework.  Another cool treat is frozen blueberries…man those little things are heavenly. Stay cool and Dog Paws Up!

Brodie served “Up” food and the White House Kitchen

I have a new dog diet…it’s golden exciting when something from a can hits my dish…yeah something soft…something that resembles meat…a lick the bowl clean commodity…something that smells like pate instead of just the lonely pebble like kibbles that bounce into my bowl each morning and evening.  Don’t get me wrong…I am grateful and I gobble whatever lands in my bowl…but this stuff is something I could not have dreamt up.  HeHe says he thinks he could eat is on cracker!  Seriously!?!

Now that we’re on food…this article 11 Things Only White House Employees Know...gives insight to the transition of the sitting president leaving the White House and the incoming president-elect moving in…even talks about the transition of food.  That was my favorite section.

I share this gastronomic epiphany with you to enlighten you peeps…yes dogs like “up” cuisine and Hail to the Chief’s food.  Paws Up!
