Our last “dog days” of summer and it’s a beautiful day for a car ride! Mandy loves to go and enjoy the car ride. Her favorite is a ride in an older Mustang convertible. It was her very first car ride in the Mustang when we took her home from the shelter, and she loved the wind beneath her wings!

Some safety tips for dogs in cars:

On any given day, it is not uncommon to see dogs hanging their heads out of car windows…remember that dogs do enjoy this but regardless how happy this might make your dog safety comes first! Since hanging its head out of a car window, debris from the road can injure a dog’s eyes, nose and mouth. A loose dog can easily distract the driver, and can be injured by an airbag. Keeping your dog in the back will decrease the likelihood of a distraction-related accident and keep your dog safer in a crash. Your best bet is to find the right restraint for your dog and increase his odds of survival in a car crash. And, most importantly of all, drive safe!

Mandy’s Summer Visits

Mom & Mandy

Mandy brings her happy smiles at the assisted home on nice summer days! She sits at the side of wheel chairs with her calm nature and enhances the quality of life for an Alzheimer’s patient. Today independent and assisted living centers promote bringing in pets. The Alzheimer’s Association says “Certainly, there’s something to all of this!”

Enjoying the summer days walking your dog daily, our brains would benefit-and so would our dogs! As dogs live longer science is learning that as Alzheimer’s disease occurs in people, so does a similar syndrome in our pets, referred to as cognitive dysfunction (CD). Moderate exercise turns out to be healthy for our heads as well as our hearts. And the same goes for our dogs! Take your dog for a walk in the “sunshine” it’s essential for your brain-and your dog’s and it’s a good time!!
