Florence and her Machine may say that “Dog Days are Over” – but, in reality, with the start of August, they are just beginning. And I say: bring them on!
I love that point in the summer – usually at the start of August – when summer is in full swing. The novelty of warm weather and all the summer traditions have worn off and you can just lay back and enjoy the balance of the all too short season.
In addition to loving the Dog Days of Summer, I love dogs, and also use this time of year to pay tribute to all the great pups I have been fortunate to know in my life. Since all dogs go to heaven, I pay special tribute to all those furry angels looking down upon us.
So let’s raise a glass of perfect summer iced tea to these glorious days and to man’s best friend.
