Here at Dogster, we’re soaking up the sun during these hot DOGust days. There are lots of paw-lidays to bark about this month, including my Emmy’s annual favorite, Spoil Your Dog day on Aug. 10. We may even make our way to the World Dog Surfing Championships on Aug. 6 near San Francisco to cheer on our adventurous pup pals. Show us how you and your #dogsterdogs are enjoying your summer by tagging us in your photos on social media.
