It is finally warming up around here and we are loving it so, so much! Winter is my favorite season but everyone else in my little family is all about hot summer days and long summer nights so it’s fair to say that spirits around here have been lifted quite a bit lately.

We’ve been going to the park every weekend and it’s been lovely. The dogs enjoy spending more time outside and it’s inspired us to put together a summer bucket list of things to do with your dog this year.
