All that being said, though, despite the scorching heat these days, I actually found myself intrigued by the thought of Christmas in July this year. So, I have decided to do some Christmas in July doodles over the next few days. That may simply involve drying out my red and green markers, but I'm all about those festive Christmas colors. So, to begin this festive summer shindig, I scribbled a little something up for Athena's always fun Caturday Art blog hop.
If I'm to be completely honest, I actually don't enjoy the beach. Hot weather and sand are not on my list of favorites. But, when it comes to Christmas in July, why not a festive beach read?
Happy Caturday to all! And don't forget to visit Athena to see all of our furiends' art!
Our Tip of the Day:If you plan on taking your pup (or even your kitty, perhaps) to the beach this summer, always be sure to plan ahead and take all necessary precautions. For example, first things first, ensure that the beach you're considering is indeed pet-friendly. Not all beaches allow dogs, so always check that detail first. Once you've done that, pack and plan accordingly. Consider the temperature outside, and whether it is safe to spend time in the sun. Have an umbrella or other item for shade on hand, some pet-friendly sunscreen, and of course fresh water. Speaking of water, while at the beach, keep an eye on your furbaby and make sure they do not try to make a water bowl out of the tides. Also keep an eye out in the water and sand for other potential dangers, whether it be litter or potentially dangerous critters. And of course we can't forget to mention that you should always consider how to best keep your pup near you, so that they do not run off. Take a leash with you for safety measures, even if your dog is trained and obedient in the ways of coming when called. Summer beach trips can indeed involve that pup (or kitty, perhaps) of yours, but of course only if it is something they could safely enjoy.
