Dog Days of Summer

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid in anyway to write this review.  All opinions are my own.
The kids are back in school and summer is starting to wind down.  And even though in the literal sense the dog days of summer and most likely passed, but in my house they only just got started.....  Yes I know that is confusing so let me explain.  When my kids are home they get most of my attention and we are always running from one summer adventure to the next when I have off work.  Now that they are in school I enjoy my days off by laying on the couch and reading books, trying new recipes in the kitchen, taking long bubble baths or even just "enjoyable" walks where I don't need to run to keep up with their scooter or bike.  And guess what, during these school months my pups get all my attention!  They get to cuddle with me on the couch, like the bowl when I am trying new recipes, lay next to my tubby as I relax and they finally get to go on walks with me again!  These are the dog days of summer in my home :)
To help us enjoy them even more I was provided several items to test out and see how my pups liked them.
First up is Petlinks Supreme Soother beds escape the heat with the Supreme Soother from Petlinks. 

With gel beads that cool and comfort, this premium bolstered bed is made of a unique mix of reclaimed memory foam to relieve achy joints. Available in two sizes Med. and Large  
After a walk all my pups want to do is chill out, literally and this bed is perfect for that!

This next product is for Emma only, my girl is getting old and when we travel she just can't keep up like she use to.  My hubby and I have been putting her in the boys old wagon, but I can tell she is scared in there.  I needed something smaller that makes her feel more secure.  That is why I love the Sherpa Pet The Ultimate On Wheels

I know this is for air travel and I will at some point in time use it for that, but right now it is convenient even for everyday travel.  My old girl just isn't what she use to be, and I don't want her to be left out of the summer fun. 

Okay so now only to Loki's favorite, he is the baby.  This December he will be 2 and even though he ADORES my kids, I can tell that during the summer he feels a bit left out.  They get most of the attention I normally give him.  To make it up to Loki I keep he well supplied with toys!   One of my favorite places to get dog toys is goDog.  The reason being my pup is rough on his toys and goDog seems to be able to upstand he rough play more then other toys on the market!
Here is a few of the cute things they offer
No matter I give my pups though they are loved and that at the end of the is the best gift I can give them.  The items above are just my special way of showing it to them.
