Oh, by the way, it’s that time of year again, fetes, festivals, vide greniers and marchés. Go and have a great time, but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, leave your dogs at home in the cool. Fun for humans, those festivities are pure misery for dogs being dragged around the crowds in the heat. Much better to go alone and be free knowing that your faithful friend is happy at home dozing in the cool. Under no circumstances leave them in the car even with windows open, the sun moves round surprisingly quickly.
