Warming Weather And Summer Hats

As the warmer weather of summer approaches, we have an important safety message about summer hats to protect you from the heat.

Frankie warns the summer heat is approaching.

Oh, sure, we had snow falling just a few weeks ago, but summer is approaching with its unbearable heat. Ok, sure, we rarely see temperatures above 80°F, but we still think that is hot. Our Hu-Dad always wears a summer hat to protect himself from the sun’s intense beams, and Frankie thought it was a good idea to try his own. How many of our canine friends think this is the summer fashion accessory this year?

    When I see Frankie in his Tilley Hat, I think of the main character in Bill Noel’s Folly Beach Mysteries! Both look stylin’ in their Tilleys!!!

    I agree with Frankie-if I had to wear a heavy fur coat like these dogs wear-I would NEED a hat too!!! Our big boy BRadley loves to lay on the A/C vent in the house-lol!!!! It has been crazy with the weather all over the place! Snow then temps almost 90 degrees!!!! What happened to Spring time???
