Dear Lucky – Brother From Another Mother!

Dear Lucky,

I’m a Golden Retriever who, of course, loves playing in the water. But my little sister is a Shih Tzu who absolutely hates to get wet. How can I include her in my summer games?

Hi there, Rosco

Visit your local dog park together – your sister might even meet a playmate to keep her company when you’re feeling like a water dog. If it’s raining or just too hot out, you guys can gather up some snacks and watch a movie – like “101 Dalmations” or any of the “Beethoven” flicks. Tug of war, a low key game of catch and even belly rubs are also great ways to pass a summer afternoon in the comfort of air conditioning.
