It can save you and your pet a whole lot of grief. Just like people, overheating and or heatstroke with dogs can get very dangerous very fast. 

12 Signs Your Pet Is Too Hot: Can You Recognize Them All?

Fellow Florida Artist Meg Pierce

I wanted to share the new website of fellow florida artist Meg Pierce. I met Meg when entering a show at Towles Court Artist Colony in Sarasota. She looked at my name and asked if I had been awarded an artist residency at Weir Farm National Historic Site in Connecticut. I had and so had she in the same year! I have seen her over the years at art shows and followed her work on Facebook. She creates beautiful mixed media images that shimmer in their subtlety. Take a moment and check out her beautiful work!

How to Keep Your Senior Dog From Destroying Your Home

They don't see so well and bump into stuff. They sometimes forget to go outside before they do their business. They can't seem to hear you very well. These are all things that happen when your dog gets older. But remember they are most likely going to happen to you as well! To me there is nothing better than a senior dog. My Abby doesn't see much anymore and I'm not really sure what's going on with her hearing. She hears me sometimes and runs in the other direction! But none of this matters to me, not even the fact she still poops on my porch even though I just repainted it! I love her and Johnny with all my heart, they are seniors and I will be one as well in the blink of an eye. They may not be there with me then, but I can guarantee I will have another old pup by my side.
