    Dogs in the summer time
    Walking your dog in the summer I love going for a walk with Lulu before and after work. But you have to be on the look out for hidden dangers - not from other dogs but from flowering grass seeds and ticks.  Flowering grass seeds can get into your dog’s eyes, ears, paws and under their skin. This can cause pain and injury to your dog. These grass seed heads are very common in the countryside and woodlands, as well as in city parks and commons too. They are plentiful during this time of the year

Now is a great time to make sure you and everyone in your family has ICE info on their phone,

Ticks can carry Lymes disease and should ideally be removed by a medical professional. They love warm moist places. Dogs and cats can
