Dog days of summer at Martin Pierce Hardware

The dog days of summer are upon us once again and that phrase has always intrigued me.  So much so that I shared the history and meaning of it in a previous blog post that you can view here.

With the summer season winding down we thought it might be a fun time to share some photos of how our dog spends her days of summer as these dog posts are always popular with our clients.

To begin, Iris was a rescue dog from The Rescue Train in Los Angeles.  She is sweet-natured and loving and lots of fun.  When we travel long distances or for extended periods of time, Iris stays at home with a loving dog-sitter.  But every chance we get we take her with us on our local forays into the mountains and onto the hiking trails we so enjoy.

While she loves to race about in open fields, she also enjoys a quiet afternoon in the workshop or in the shaded backyard as you can see in the above photo.

But when she is not “resting”, she is quite the trail hiker.

And nothing makes her happier than wide open spaces where she can run to her heart’s content.

And, just like us, Iris enjoys an afternoon spent with good friends.
