Tips to beat the heat for your dog

Well I know we had a break from the heat but another round is coming up.  A couple of things I do for my Golden Boy Jigs:  First at a certain age he didn’t like ice cubes any more.  I guess they are just too hard as they get older.  So I began a couple years ago to fill an ice cube tray with yogurt, well two ice cube trays to be exact as one is not enough.  He loves them as the texture is like .  Only problem is every time I go to the fridge to get some ice guess who is standing beside or around me!  Even when he is sleeping and I try to be
