Summer heat and pets

Recently one of the dogs that I petsit for was featured in a local news story that took place at a dog park in downtown Houston. The article was about how the summer heat is affecting dogs. Here is the story:

This brings me to the point that it is very important that if you will be taking your pets to a park or on a long walk it is necessary to bring water along so that they do not over heat. The heat in Houston and other parts of the U.S. has been excruciating and at times unbearable. Being properly hydrated and cooled off can prevent serious harm and illness to humans and pets.

Updated Website

I finally decided to update my website. I have always struggled with how I should word certain things on the website and especially when I am talking about myself. I felt weird talking about myself in third person. I updated many of the pages to reflect who I am. Since for now it is only me in the company (I often contemplate whether to hire someone or not) I am writing in first person. I decided to in the "about me" section really tell my story of how I got started. I am a very private person and don't open up too much or talk about myself a lot because I don't want to portray the idea that I sound cocky. I figured that it is probably a good thing to know how I got started doing what I do and what led me to where I am now.

I have very much made my website about me and who I am to the best of my ability. I am constantly working out kinks with it and trying to reword or rearrange things to make it visually appealing, easy to read and easy to find things. I am always open to suggestions on things I should change in order to enhance my website.
