Wow! What a busy weekend!
We had a weekend full of fun in the sun, plus getting tons of well needed yard work done!
I actually have a garden now!
Yes, yes, I know, it's a tad late in the year, but what can I say? I'm not much of a gardener, but I knew I had to get something done out there! Stay tuned this week for some pawsome garden pics with the huskies!
For today's "Oh My Dog!" post, we bring you a big "awww" moment.
This dad gets the sweetest welcome every day he comes home from work from his gorgeous husky.
You can really see the warm, loving relationship these two have. It is such a beautiful thing!
Check out this short video to see the love for yourself!
Is that not the sweetest thing you have ever saw?
Watching this video inspired me to find a few dog quotes, so here are two of my favs :
Before you go, I have a few quick tips for you, for our upcoming holiday.
Tomorrow (for us Canadians) it is our countries birthday.
Canada Day is widely celebrated, and is one of the most eventful days of the year.
But for us humans, who are owned by dogs, cats, or other pets, there are a few things to remember.
Stay safe tips for Canada Day :
- If you choose to bring your pets with you for the celebrations, please be sure to keep them hydrated! This is SO impawtant. There are portable bowls available for your convenience, so that your not having to bring bowls with you everywhere you go. See my post on the Kurgo zippy bowl for an example.
- Provide your pet with shade throughout the day. Do not let your pet overheat. Take breaks by finding shady areas, and allow your pet to lay down for a while with a nice cold drink.
- If you notice your pet is over anxious around so many people, or if your pet is showing signs of heat exhaustion, please bring your pet home.
- Do not let your pet get overstimulated. You don't want your dog to be nervous, anxious or fearful in a surrounding of so many people. This can easily happen if your pet is not used to these settings.

I don't think it needs to be said that 99% of dogs are scared of fireworks.
We all know that.
Some dogs may be able to tolerate them, but it is best to leave your pets at home during the fireworks.
By all means, let them take part in the daytime festivities, but I would recommend leaving them home for the night shows.
If you follow these tips, both you, and your pets can have a great time celebrating the birth of Canada!
BTW, I know I have a ton of readers from the U.S, the U.K etc....
these tips are great for any celebration such as Canada Day, anywhere in the world, for whatever you may be celebrating.
Thanks everyone, and have a Happy Canada Day tomorrow!!!
