Throw a pool party! Kiddie pools are super handy in the summer.

Make your furry bestie a peanut butter and banana pup-sicle! Combine a very ripe banana, plain yogurt, a bit of honey and peanut butter and pour into a popsicle mold or plastic cup. You can use a milk bone as the handle!

Wrap a cold bandana around his neck! Soak the bandana and keep it in the fridge. Ever noticed how a dog will spread out on a cool tile floor? A dog loses heat from the bottom up, so make sure to get apply a cool wet towel to his tummy.

Make sure to keep your best friend hydrated by providing lots of water. Bring a portable water bowl with you when you walk. Try to walk in the early morning or evening when the temperature is lowest. Asphalt can sear those tender paws.

If all else fails, invite yourself over to the neighbors with the pool!
