In the Good Old Summertime.....
Those Cardis just love the water! Above, Elwood chills out after a hard day at shows

Florida Cardi, "Lucy" loves the ocean. She kept diving off the dock so owners, Dan and Kathy, built steps for her and now she joins the family in the fun. Lucy swims with her life vest. We're told the salt water helps rid dogs of fleas!
Hey some of us have to work on our tan, you know! ("Summer" catching some rays)
Elwood is a stitch to watch in our pool and I will work on getting some photos. Taught him to use the step area only. He steps down on the top step, lines himself up, then HURLS himself to me and I catch him. Then of course I just crack up laughing at him. Then hes content just to hang on me, occasionally licking the water off my face. Hes so funny. Hes the son I should have had!!! LOL.
Remember to give special care to the dogs during hot weather. Give plenty of fresh cold water and provide shade. Don't leave them out in heat for long. Older dogs need special attention in the heat. Don't leave them in the car! Better yet, leave them home when you can.
