Striped Situation

When life gives you stripes,
 
make an umbrella,
 
or giraffes!

Back-To-School Advice For Teachers

 
Now that school has started for most kids, I think we need to consider that age-old excuse that some kids use when they haven't done their homework...."The dog ate my homework!"  Personally, I've never found my human sister's homework to look the least bit tasty.  However, given the shirt I'm wearing, this dog clearly had an appetite for some delicious math homework.  I'm guessing that the subject matter was "pi" ;)  Apparently, teachers need to keep an open mind to this excuse...because the proof may just be an x-ray away!

National Immunization Awareness Month

 
The month of August is recognized as "National Immunization Awareness Month" for the humans. 

Our humans need immunizations (also called vaccines or shots) to help protect them from serious diseases. To help keep our community safe, I am proudly participating in National Immunization Awareness Month, via this blog post.

Shots can prevent serious diseases like measles, diphtheria, and rubella. It’s important to know which shots our humans need and when to get them.
Humans should talk to their doctor or nurse to make sure that everyone in the family gets the shots they need. For more information, visit http://healthfinder.gov/NHO/AugustToolkit.aspx or http://www.vaccines.gov/more_info/features/national_immunization_awareness_month_2013.html

Our humans do so much for us, it's only right that we look after them too!

Dog Days Of Summer

 
We interrupt your summer (if you live in the Northern Hemisphere) to talk about the importance of staying hydrated. We pups need to have a fresh supply of cool water to drink when we're playing outside on hot, sultry days.  As much as I love my hydrant pals, I would not suggest drinking
from hydrants ;)  With that in mind, I found this fun chair with water bowls in the arms and I'm trying to get my mom to buy it for me.  Don't you think I would look good in this chair?
