We have officially crossed the threshold into the dog days of summer (which actually has nothing to do with canines, but rather the dog star Sirius...who knew?). To commemorate the stretch of heat (and lethargy) associated with this period, we scoured Etsy and rounded up 9 super cool, modern pet houses—from cat friendly cardboard to designer edifices—for your furry friends to ride out the season.
Dog Days of Summer Sunset Party: 5:30-9:30 p.m. Aug. 17 at Bluffton Oyster Factory Park. This party will include music, food, and beer for party-goers to enjoy. The celebration will benefit Palmetto Animal League, a no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization serving animals in the Lowcountry. Cost is $5.
