In my home state of Indiana last week, the temperatures peaked at 105! As a child, I often heard those sorts of days referred to as the dog days of summer. Webster defines “dog days” as that period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere, periods of stagnation or inactivity. The point is that it has been record-breaking hot across much of America lately, and that led me to title this post, The Dog Days of Summer.
A customer named Tracy asked us to make a photo of this amazing image, telling us…”This was a photo of our pet, Maggie, a lab, and my son’s dog, Boo Boo, looking out at the ocean. My son was a fisherman, and they always looked for his return, whether it be by land, car, or boat! They proved that dog really is man’s best friend! Thanks, Canvas on Demand, for making a memory so special! I had researched the transfer of photos to canvas, and came upon your site quite often. But I always put it off! I am excited that I finally purchased, and so very glad I did! I am so happy with your service and commitment to quality!” Well, Tracy, when it’s a hot summer day, what better way to cool off than gazing at the sea? That photo is absolutely precious!
Angela, another customer and dog lover, sent us this sweet picture of Roxy, a dog after my own heart. If it gets too hot, my MO, like Roxy’s, is to find a comfy place and just relax. Angela told us: “Canvas on Demand was wonderful! The process was easy and very user friendly. The prices are great, and I can’t wait to place my next order”!
Now…for all you readers who love dogs, you’ll love this next story that Carol sent us about her dog. “He is our best beloved rescue. We were his fifth home. And we found out why when we left him alone for a couple hours, and he totally destroyed it. Doggie day care saved our house, and he gave us two wonderful short years. Here is a picture of him at my parent’s cabin at Nancy Lake, Alaska, enjoying the great outdoors. We received the Canvas much faster than expected. So glad we went with the pixel painting upgrade. The results are fantastic …it looks like he could step right off the canvas! Thanks for giving us back our beloved rescue.”
Now if you are suffering from heat today, this next canvas of Doug’s dog, Kingston, will surely cool you off! Doug wrote in his testimonial: “Dog owners are always proud to tell you their dog can retrieve under water. It was great to finally prove it in a photo. Here is Kingston last summer. Kingston and a chocolate Lab are featured on the walls of the latest downtown Bozeman eatery. It is called Sloppy Dawgs on Main Street. Check them out at: http://www.sloppydawgsrestaurant.com/Sloppy_Dawgs_Restaurant_bozeman_MT.html. Canvas On Demand was even better than I expected and their site so easy to use.”
Thanks to these customers for sharing the great “stories behind the canvases”! It’s cooled off a bit here in Indiana, but it’s still the Dog Days! But I could just relax here in the air-conditioning all day and read these wonderful doggie tales. Mom
