I am happy it is Summer but dog is it hot outside. The South Florida "feels like" temperatures are nearing triple digits. Last week when our air conditioning conked out, Ma was searching for a way to help keep me cool. She remembered Sugar the Golden Retriever had a recipe for doggie popsicles with SuperGravy® so we ran over to her blog to check it out.
We didn't have the fruit in Sugar's recipe, but we had Clear Conscious Pet SuperGravy, so Ma went ahead and altered the recipe to suit the ingredients we had available. She came up with Strawberry Banana Dixie Pups with SuperGravy.

The big day is this Saturday - 4th of July - and it will be filled with picnics, barbecues, and of course, fireworks. For people, it's a fun time to celebrate our nation's birthday (and I get to celebrate my Grandma's birthday too) but for us pets, the noise and commotion can cause anxiety and fear.
I’m sure you already know this, but the 4th of July is the busiest day of the year for animal shelters. Dogs (and even cats) run away from home, trying to escape the scary "booms" from the fireworks. In addition to the risk of your pet possibly running away, it’s very common that they will present other negative behaviors, all rooted in anxiety, such as barking, digging, chewing or clawing uncontrollably.
So how can you keep your pet calm and safe this 4th of July? Here are 4 Pet Safety Tips that can help keep your pet safe and calm.
