I know I’m not the only dog mom who is excited that outside opened up just in time to enjoy Summer 2021.  And while we all are still taking precautions, I know dog moms everywhere will be heading to boozy brunches with the girls, poolside goss sessions and breezy beaches.

And as every sun-loving dog mom knows, the perfect companion to every lazy summer afternoon is a good beach read.  What makes a good summer read you ask?

Something you can lose yourself in.  A book that drowns out the squealing kids or barking dogs in the background.  A story that whisks us all alway to a different time or place.

So in honor of our Dog Mom Days Of Summer seres, here’s my list of perfect summer reads.
