Did a cleansing in the salon today💜

Recently rescued “Bonnie” was calm and relaxed during her first Peticures by Tess. “It is very important to treat dogs with gentleness and love.” (Bonnie was rescued from an abusive situation where she lost her eye) she is now very happy in her new loving home! God I love my job!

17 year old Hanna still wants to go out with her brother and sister , now with her new stroller she’s doing just that and loving it!( this stroller once belonged to another senior dog, Snickers, to be able to go to the park with her family, when she passed, her family gave me the stroller to give to the dogs that could use it. I call it the Snicker Stroller❤️❤️🐾🐾❤️❤️🐶❤️❤️


1985 Looff Carousel - San Diego, California

The Looff Carousel was first installed in Fair Park, Texas in 1895. Its journeys took the wooden structure to Santa Monica, California in the 1950s, Spanaway, Washington in the 1970s, Portland, Oregon in 1979, and Burbank, California in 1997, finally making it to San Diego in 2004.

Featuring over 40 horses, a menagerie of other animals, including camels, giraffes, and an elephant, the carousel was built by Charles I. D. Looff, the father of carousels in America. Born in Denmark, Looff came to the United States in 1870. He built his first carousel in 1876 for Coney Island and his style would go on to influence a myriad of other carousel makers.

While many of his creations have disappeared with time, you can still experience Looff’s legendary work at the Zeum Carousel in San Francisco,  Looff’s Lite-A-Line in Long Beach, California, and the Santa Monica Looff Hippodrome on the Santa Monica Pier.

Don’t take your dog out in the afternoon heat during summer!
    Not unless you’re going to the river or beach, or a nice cool shady spot. Humans are very efficient at staying cool, using our whole bodies as radiators. Dogs not so much. Their coats will protect them from sunburn, but not sunstroke!

Ways to avoid heat stress in the summer:

  • Wear a light jacket when you walk your dog- this will allow you to better judge when enough is enough by feeling the heat yourself.
  • Walk before lunch or after dinner, when the sun is not its strongest.
  • Set up a kids pool or sprinkler so your dog can wade and chase the water.
  • Wrap a wet bandanna around your dog’s neck
  • Buy a light heat-reflecting vest for black dogs
  • Shave your dog’s underside so it can passively shed heat.
  • Have your dog’s undercoat removed - this is usually an arduous and tedious task, so you may want to pay a groomer to do it.
  • Freeze plain yogurt for a cooling treat

Be especially wary of heat stroke for short-faced, cobby, and heavy-coated dogs!

Symptoms include: 
rapid abdominal contraction, excessive panting, flushed tongue, thick saliva, high heartrate, unsettledness, high internal temperature.

      If your dog shows signs of heat stroke, cool them down immediately by wetting them, giving water, fanning, making sure the air and water penetrates their coat.

     Even if a dog shows no signs of damage, heat stroke can cause internal/organ damage, so have a checkup with a vet.

Word!!!! Keep your dogs cool!
