Sophia, the Amazing Weather Doodle reminds everyone that your dogs are hot. It is well past time to get your kiddie pools out.
If you don't have one, get one!
Trainers tip: Kiddie pools can help with some confirmed diggers.
For dogs who dig and love the water, try putting your dogs toys in the kiddie pool. A lot of dogs will try to dig them out, and this will help channel your dogs energy in a proper location.
Or try giving your dog a sandbox in the shade and simply redirect them to the place that they can dig. Cooling the sand with cold water will make it a very enticing albeit messy place to be.

It was a great day to be a dog
or a duck.
Extreme high winds and once again Sophia the Weatherdoodle was there.
High winds = superior stick selection.
Freddie concurs also.
Sophia has rightfully earned her own Weatherdoodle category.
Be sure to check back soon for further adventures of...
"Sophia the Amazing Weather Doodle Dog".
Note-Playing with and chewing sticks can be very dangerous for your dogs. I allowed the stick play for pictures only and then redirected all the dogs to safer toys.
Sophia confirms fall is still here!
Here on MaineToday.com if you want to know the weather you can read the weather report and/or click on the weather bloggers, and/or weather cams.
But here on A Dog's Life I would like to introduce my secret weather predictor, Sophia the amazing Weatherdoodle dog. Back in the spring Sophia let us know the split second Mud Season hit. In the summer, she was the first dog in my kiddie pool, but unfortunately I didn't have my camera handy. Rest assured that this will not, and can not be allowed to happen again, and Sophia and I will undoubtedly be at the ready to report the next seasonal change just as it occurs.
And now, without further ado, I give you Sophia's latest weather prediction:
Sophia confirms that Winter is coming!
Sophia also confirms that all seasons are just fine with her!
Thanks to Pam for sharing photos of her weekend hike at Tumbledown and Blue Mountain
Sophia-one dirty doodle!
I thought I had the original mud puppy until I took Sophia to the dog park on Ocean Ave. today. At nearly 9 months old, she loves to play and does so with reckless abandon. She is quite adept at skidding through the mud head first.
Can you tell?
After a winter's hibernation, the hose came out to play for the first of many outdoor baths.
As much as I strongly believe dogs should be allowed to be dogs, me and Charlee and guests, will be sticking to higher ground for a while.
