The dog days of summer are officially here. And Peppermint will be the first to tell you that temperatures in the triple digits are no fun, especially for a fluffy Jack Russell. While Peppermint has always preferred to be an indoor dog, these past few days she doesn’t even want to venture out for a walk around the yard. She’ll barely leave the shade of the garage, and even then it’s only if she believes she might be heading from the air-conditioned house to the air-conditioned truck. But she’s really just a reflection of us—always seeking the creature comforts in life.
