Hanging Out On My Deck With My Canine Companions

Bella, Alex, and Dexter (L to R)

Cynthia, the designated photographer in our home, was able to capture this picture with our 3 canine companions.  Well, maybe it was me taking the picture.  I look at it this way: if pictures look amazing, Cynthia took them; if pictures look terrible, then I took them.  You be the judge of that since I am not too sure which one of us took this photo.

Alex is asleep. Bella and Dexter are on guard duty.

Dogs with short hair like Alex, Bella, and Dexter usually love to sun bathe, but please do not leave your dogs unattended.  After they have breakfast, I take them out to the deck so they can enjoy the sun and relax for a couple of minutes.  They go out again in the afternoon for a few minutes, usually shorter than in the morning, since we are usually in the basement which is nice and cool and we all want to warm up a bit.  Please, be very diligent with your dogs during this hot Summer and do not expose them to too much heat.  Have a great week!

Alex Sunbathing

Alex loves to sunbathe regardless of what time of the year it is.  You look at her and she seems to be in heaven.

wed1Dogs with short hair like Alex tend to get cold very easy and maybe because of that they crave the sun.  I was reading not too long ago about senior dogs, now one of my many favorite subjects since Alex is a senior doggie, that discussed things that senior dogs should do such as: exercise, proper diet, message, and sunbathing, to name a few.  I remember the article about sunbathing because Alex enjoys doing that, and according to what I read sunbathing is good for them because it gives them a, “healthy boost of sunshine into their systems.”  If you want to read more about it, check out this website,  http://www.pekinews.com/why-do-dogs-like-to-sunbathe-the-reason-behind-your-pekingeses-sunbathing/
