Chloe, our Bernese Mountain dog is not loving the dog days of summer. In fact, she needs her daily walk before seven in the morning of after seven in the evening. She found the coolest room in the house (basement). She loves to ride in the car, but only if the windows are down (so no highway driving) and only if the a/c is cranking. Occasionally, we find her in one of the bedrooms to take advantage of the ceiling fan-generated breeze.
My son took this photo when he got out of the shower and found Chloe on his bed. He sent me this photo. She loves to be with her brother and I love that he feels the same way about her.
Ever wonder about the expression dog days of summer? Here’s a little history lesson of this popular expression. . She loves to run end of day errands with me like the UPS store and carwashes. Places that I either can do in a drive-thru or a drop and dash.
In the evenings she likes to chill on the patio and listen to the baby birds. She is happiest with the family. My husband was sitting next to her in this photo, but I had to crop him so Chloe could be the focus! #allaboutchloe
She loves to chill with her older brother when he gets home from work.
