Since Southwest Louisiana has warm weather about eight months out of the year, backyard pools are a favorite addition to many family homes. The kids, and the neighborhood kids, love it, the parents like having the kids at home where they can keep an eye on things, and once the initial investment is paid, it's a great way to entertain without spending a lot of money.

As the "dog days of summer" begin, it seems like an appropriate time to remind pet owners that they are not the only ones affected by the Southwest Louisiana heat and humidity. Pets also face increased risk of heat stroke as the temperatures rise in July and August.
