Sometimes, phrases that we like to repeat can seem more appropriate than at other times. The adage “The dog days of summer” is one that I have been stuck on recently. Just when you think you can't take it any more, the thermometer climbs yet again. Why the weather report? As if you don't already know that it is nothing short of miserable? Well, I want to remind you that these types of days really are not fit for our canine friends, either. I am sure that you already know to keep plenty of fresh water available for pets and to offer them and a shelter with shade.

scottb@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - The Baltimore Orioles' loss apparently was the Hagerstown Suns' gain Sunday as several dog owners from the Baltimore and Washington, D.C., areas came to a Suns baseball game so they could bring their dogs along. While the Suns were badly defeated, the 10 dogs in attendance, along with their owners, didn't appear to mind. Most of the dog owners suggested they are willing to drive long distances to bring their dogs inside to watch the game with them, as well as to eat some food.

A Borough of Waynesboro recreation area is scheduled to receive water service shortly before the dog days of summer. Northside Dog Park, which opened in 2011, will receive fountains in coming weeks. “There is public water available. All we have to do is run a line,” Borough Manager Lloyd Hamberger said. Costs should be minimal as only manpower and materials are needed, he said. The dog park has two sections to separate small and large dogs. It is off North Potomac Street Extended.
