Hot dogs know how to keep it cool this summer

We couldn’t be more excited that summer is finally here – especially after that brutal winter that we had. What better way to celebrate than to throw off all of our clothes, sprint out into the back yard and run through the sprinklers with our dogs… until you realize that the whole neighborhood is watching and filming your naked escapade to download on YouTube. Okay, the next best thing: let’s dedicate a summer section to our furry BFFs and call it Hot Dogs!

Our Hot Dogs section is all about getting the most fun – safely, of course – with your dog this summer. We have cool contests, fun activities, DIY projects, yummy recipes, revealing reviews, important health tips and so much more. We can’t wait to share it all with you and we hope that you’ll share your summer adventures and memories with us via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.

Stay cool, Hot Dogs!
