How well are you treating your best friend? You know, the one who’s faithfully waiting for you at the door when you get home and who curls up at your feet and thinks that you’re the most perfect person on the planet (no matter what you mom and dad might be thinking at the time).
Our furry animal companions are our best friends, and we owe it to them to make sure that their lives are as happy and comfortable as they can possibly be. But for every lucky dog or cat who has a comfortable home, nutritious food, and a loving guardian like you, countless other dogs and cats are suffering at the hands of incompetent or abusive people, are struggling to survive on the streets, or are waiting in animal shelters for a good home.
Dogs can’t sweat! Instead, they pant to cool themselves off. So when it’s hot, be sure that your dog has lots of fresh water to drink and isn’t out in the sun for too long.
