Summer time means Watermelon Time. In fact it probably means really crazy deals on watermelon like the 15lbs of watermelon I picked up yesterday for under $3.00! There is something about Watermelon that makes me reach for more which is why I am not allowed to have an entire watermelon or any large quantities of watermelon in the house. EVER! Like I said I do love watermelon and I love recipes using watermelon so I figured that many of you have some extra watermelon from this weekend that you probably want to use up so that if nothing else you don’t loose half your refrigerator space to watermelon. Plus it will give you a chance to experiment with your leftovers and try something different.
Watermelon has some great vitamins and minerals for both you and your dogs. Watermelon is hydrating that is why it tastes so very good on Hot Summer Days and is also why it is so great for your dog on a Hot Summer Day. In fact it is such a good hydration source that some Veterinary Schools will offer dehydrated dogs that come into their care a small bowl of watermelon to get some liquid into them without resorting to subQ fluids all the time especially if the dog is a willing participant. I wonder if that comes out in a line item on your bill for the care of your dog?
