our Mom has always been aware of the dreaded
From the time she was a child,
she was always slathered in sun screen
and sometimes even in the winter
you can even smell the faint aroma
of cocoa butter if you get close to her.
Peeps, don't forget your sunscreen when going out.
Remember the sun is at its strongest
between the hours of
10:00 am and 3:00pm.
But more importantly,
please realize that you dog is susceptible
especially light dogs like
Carrleigh and Piper,
And too much sun exposure
will not only cause painful sunburn,
but it can cause skin cancer as well.
Many dogs love to lie in the sun,
please be careful if yours is one of them
and monitor the amount of time
that it spends in sunlight.
There are special
sunscreens for dogs,
but if you don't have one,
then a spray on sunscreen
for babies would work also.
Be careful not to get it in their eyes.
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ruairi
