Summer is definitely here. We can safely pack away all that winter wear! Please remember to consider your pets comfort this time of year. I saw a guy at the farmers market in Solvang today showing off and making is dog obey and lay fully down on the very hot pavement. Apparently wondering why the dog didn't want to lay down never entered his mind. Super uncool which I made sure to mention to him. That is besides the point that dogs are not allowed at the farmers market anyway, so says the huge sign at both ends of the market. So plan on leaving your fur children in the car with the AC running, a bowl of water and Steely Dan playing. Its the kind thing to do.
