Predict Market Turning Points " width="300" height="200" />So the British Summer might be turning into a stop start affair, one day the sky is clear, the next the heavens seem permanently open.
There is no such worry over the pond where temperatures seem to have been turned up and left on a constant high setting.
Temperatures across the states closed in on the 100 degree mark this month and some very hot canines did their best to keep cool.
One of the best hot dog attempts came from Bulldog Gus, whose actions have seen him become a You Tube sensation.
Uncomfortably hot, Gus spotted a paddling pool in his owner’s back yard.
Not wanting to stay outside in the scorching temperatures, but also in need of a quick dip Gus decided there was only one thing for it.
The Bulldog grabbed the paddling pool in his mouth and attempted to pull it into his owner’s house, deterred only by the narrow door opening.
Gus’ owner filmed the episode and was quick to get it on You Tube.
Dogs never cease to amaze owners with their ingenuity and Gus is just another example of this. Adding a puppy into a household can bring a lot of joy to the whole family. If you have recently purchased a puppy from a breeder registered with the Dog Breeders Association you could benefit from 12 weeks free insurance. For more information visit www.dog-breeds.co.uk.
Sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have increasing numbers of profiles of pets, in fact, one in ten of pets in the UK have either their own Facebook or Twitter profile or YouTube channel. Owners are normally on these social networking sites themselves and so choose to open a separate account for their pets also, just for the fun of it. I’m sure that everyone who hasn’t got a profile for their own pets, will know of someone who has. The demand is there and even Mark Zuckerberg has a Facebook profile for his dog called Beast. A social media specialist commented: ‘ We use sites like Facebook and Twitter as an extension of our real-world selves and when we think of our pets as part of the family we want them involved too.’
Have you got a Facebook/Twitter profile for you pet or did you put a video clip of your pet on YouTube? Do you think it is a good idea?
