Summer Haircuts for your Pet

With summer temperatures on the rise, our pets deserve a reprieve. We’ve gathered a handful of hilarious haircuts to help get your pet through the dog (and cat) days of summer!


The Lion

Whether you have a dog or a cat, a very popular summer haircut is the Lion! Shaving off the majority of your pets fur is bound to help them cool off during the heat of the season. Some owners choose to shave off all but the mane, while others go so far as to include the tufts of fur at the tail and around the paws. This cat doesn’t seem too happy, but it looks like the dog is thrilled to play dress up!


The Stegosaurus

Send you pet back to prehistoric eras with this Stegosaurus cut! It looks pretty involved, and not easy to accomplish, but it’s sure to leave your pet cool and comfortable when it’s hot outside. A plus is that the spikes aren’t sharp, and your pet isn’t extinct!


The Mohawk

It’s a style that never seems to go, well, out of style! The mohawk looks great on people and pets alike! This unique haircut has the benefit of keeping your pet cool and comfortable while still allowing you to pet that luxurious coat you’re used to! Some owners trim the tail, too, keeping the fur just along the back. No matter which cut you choose, your pet will be the coolest on the block.


Puss in Ugg Boots

Summer is definitely not the season to be walking around in shearling lined boots. But, this cat can get away with it! How adorable is this haircut? Similar to the Lion, but with a little less mane, this haircut is sure to accent your pet’s style. Your animal will definitely feel a lot cooler, both socially and temperature-wise!


Lederhosen

Whether you live in Scandinavia or not, everyone loves a good pair of Lederhosen! This dog is a good sport when it comes to his apparel. If you give your pet this incredible cut, you’ll yodel with laughter every time you look at him. Guaranteed to raise a laugh and lower the temperature, the Lederhosen cut is a win-win!


Bunny Bonus!

Historically prized for their luxurious long fur, Angoras are said to be softer than cashmere! It’s more about comfort for this little guy! Close cropped and too cute for words, we couldn’t have an animal post without highlighting a bunny.!


If you have a pet, or even if you don’t, we hoped you enjoyed seeing and reading about what some owners do to help their animals stay cool and comfy in the summer!

 

 

The Best Bunny Books

pat-the-bunny

Rabbits make regular appearances throughout literature. From folklore to baby’s first board book, bunnies often teach us lessons and have become some of the most popular characters in our favorite books. We’re excited to share our collection of favorite stories and books that feature bunnies at the heart of it all.


Goodnight Moon

goodnight-moon-1

 

This wildly popular children’s book has spawned countless spinoffs. The “Goodnight” series can be found for almost all popular cities and Goodnight Moon has been printed in numerous languages. Who is saying “goodnight” to us all? A little bunny of course! Getting tucked into bed, our little bunny is wishing the world a good night’s sleep.


Guess How Much I Love Youguess-how-much-i-love-you

In this book, a simple storyline follows a heartfelt connection between two nutbrown hares. Using exceedingly large measures of love, the two bunnies share an undeniable bond that has captured the hearts of kids and adults everywhere.


Br’er Rabbit

brer-rabbit

Br’er Rabbit is a cunning character of oral Folklore, whose exploits rely on wit rather than brawn. A staple in the stories of the American South, Br’er Rabbit can also be traced to African trickster tales, along with Native American stories about tricky rabbits! In the late 1800’s, Joel Chandler Harris popularized Br’er rabbit for the public, publishing stories that had only been passed down verbally. Br’er Rabbit uses his sly and cunning mentality to shift social expectations and usually succeeds un getting out of some sticky situations. Harris’ Uncle Remus tells the stories of this ornery but lovable bunny.


Peter Rabbit

peter-rabbit

The Tale of Peter Rabbit follows a curious young bunny as he journeys into his neighbor’s garden to eat vegetables! Not only does he adventure out against his mother’s wishes, Peter manages to lose his coat and come down with a cold. Created by Beatrix Potter in the early 1900’s, the tales of Peter Rabbit span multiple books, have been widely accepted as a staple in children’s literature, and The Tale of Peter Rabbit has been translated into over 30 languages! A wide following and a sense of adventure make us love this little bunny.


The Velveteen Rabbit

velveteen-rabbit

 

Arguably the most iconic book concerning a bunny, The Velveteen Rabbit has been a staple in children’s nurseries since the 1920’s. This book teaches us about life and love, and the devotion of one poor, sick little boy. This story follows a stuffed rabbit and his quest to become real, through the love of his owner. The Velveteen Rabbit is both heartwarming and sad, as it teaches us to deal with both love and loss.


We hope you’ve enjoyed our Bunny Book roundup! Whether you’ve been reminded of some forgotten favorites, or discovered new stories, that concludes the Best Bunny Books!
