SHAKE IT OFF. As we enter the dog days of summer, don’t forget to keep your four-legged friend cool. Practice retrieves by stick, dummy or bumper, and get them some fitness time on the trail as well. If worse comes to worse, just take them fishing. On the latter we’ve got sources for salmon and walleyes today and a look ahead in our Outdoors Roundup.
