Dog Days Of Summer

Tuesday, 19 August 2014 | Tags: , , , , ,

When I'm sweating buckets, I keep thinking about our four-legged friends in their fur coats. Despite the drippy tongues and excessive panting, they seem to weather the temperature with a certain insouciance.

Here are some hot dogs that have crossed my path this summer, along with a few photos supplied by fellow dog lovers.  Pooches always make such amusing subjects and never fail to put a smile on my face.
