I was curious as to where this term
came from. So just a quick search
led me to this site which said that
this refers to the time when the
Sirius, or dog star, is most
visible in certain skies.
It was so huge and noticeable that
some believed it added to the heat
of the sun to warm the earth during
the late summer months.
I have no idea if this is the true origin
of this phrase, or not,
however dog days of summer have
a different meaning here at Hospitality
We really mean dogs!
My Mom's dog, Bear,
likes to visit our house.
Recently He and Warren had
a little serious time.
However it soon lightened
up and they were laughing
Kimmy has been thinking
that all of the other

Along came the Diva...Chloe.
Wanting in on the action.
See the little toy on the floor?
We have hit upon the most perfect
dog toys. McDonald's Teeny TY's
When we buy dog toys that are intended
for dogs, they rip them apart within days
and remove all of the stuffing.
These toys last for a very, very long
time and usually are put to death by
the lawnmower as Chloe loves to take
them outside with her, but forgets
to bring them back.
I was totally put out the other day
when I ordered a McDonald's Kids meal
just for the toy and was given a Matchbox
Car! Not what I wanted...the kids laughed
at my frustration. But, you just don't
know how much I love these little toys
for the dogs. The lack of fluffy white
stuffing all over the floor is just too
On a completely different subject...
