The Dog Days of Summer are Here!

The term “Dog Days” traditionally refers to a period of particularly hot and humid weather occurring during the summer months of July and August in the Northern Hemisphere.

In ancient Greece and Rome, the Dog Days were believed to be a time of drought, bad luck, and unrest, when dogs and men alike would be driven mad by the extreme heat. Today, the phrase doesn’t conjure up such bad imagery. Instead, the Dog Days are associated purely with the time of summer’s peak temperatures and humidity. (source:  The Almanac)

Yes, the heat and humidity are upon us – but we’re not letting that slow us down.  As always, we’d welcome the opportunity to learn more about you, your business and any fur-babies in your home!

We are embracing the ’Dog Days’ with our team and their pooches!  We hope you’ll enjoy as we brag on our four-legged kiddos a bit!


Hondo, Amy Milam’s dog

Hondo loves being outdoors fishing, swimming in the tank, taking long rides through the country and ice cream sandwiches.  He’s a 3-year-old Labrador retriever.



Phineas Winston Anderson (Finn for short), Becky Anderson’s dog

Finn loves chasing golf carts – he never catches them; he just likes to act like he will catch them.  Finn and Becky love the outdoors and walking the trail.


Bruno and Treasure, Mike Anderson’s dogs

Bruno enjoys mimicking his dad, Mike, by wearing hats; and Treasure is living up to his name by treasuring time via a nap with his dad.


King and Ace, Daniel Ke’s dogs

They love walks with their dad, Daniel

SIDE NOTE:  if you remember last month’s feature, you’ll know the derivative of their names – don’t worry – there won’t be any quizzes.

Hazel, Tanner Milam’s dog

Hazel is a cuddler – but also enjoys running (like her dad!).

SIDE NOTE:  Hazel isn’t sticking her tongue out at you!  🙂


Kimber, Miles Moore’s dog

Kimber’s favorite thing to do is to play fetch and swim!



Kane, Jazmyne Renfro’s dog

Kane – or sometimes Kaniac – loves longs walks, sandwiches and making new friends

SIDE NOTE: we promise we didn’t copy this from a song lyric!


Diego, Kim Schofield’s dog

Diego only responds when Kim speaks to him in Spanish (we’re not sure on the English commands).  Diego also enjoys chasing big dogs.


Buster and Rose, Stephanie White’s dogs

These guys are attention seekers and want it all, though belly rubs are the best.  The smaller one, Rose, likes to nip at ankles.
