The Barking Lot – America’s Finest Dog Blog (08/22/20)

The Barking Lot is a regular weekly feature of This Just In…Written by my lovely wife, Jennifer and me.  It opens with the weekend dog walking forecast followed by the main blog from dog lover, Jennifer. Then it’s DOGS IN THE NEWS and our close. Enjoy!

THE WEEKEND DOG-WALKING FORECAST: We grade the weather outlook for taking your pet outdoors.

TODAY:   Intervals of clouds and sunshine. High of 87.  “A”

: Partly cloudy skies. A stray shower or thunderstorm is possible. High of 87. “A”

Now, here’s my lovely wife, Jennifer, with this week’s main blog.

Jennifer just happens to have the week off.


That means I fill in for her!


Except this week. Just couldn’t do it.


Yes, really.

So here goes. I understand that folks with dogs can struggle with their barking?

Again, wouldn’t know. Don’t have a dog. As one of Jennifer’s friends mentioned years ago (in jest) I’m a dog-hating husband.

Filling in this week is a Jennifer favorite, waxing wise on the barking dog.

Take a look, read it, and learn maybe?

NEXT: An annual dog surfing competition has been cancelled in California due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Surf Dog-A-Thon usually takes place in September at Del Mar Dog Beach in Del Mar, California. But this year’s competition will be held virtually, allowing contestants – or more likely their owners – to submit videos of their best moves from anywhere in the world. The dogs, which are put into groups according to weight, are judged on the length of ride, size of wave ridden, and maneuvers such as walking on the board, turning on the wave, and barking. Proceeds from this event go to Helen Woodward Animal Center, an animal shelter. Submissions will be edited into a video and posted online in September.

And next Wednesday is National Dog Day!

That’s it for this week.

Thanks for stopping by.

We kindly ask that you please share with other dog lovers you know.

See ya, BARK, next Saturday morning!
