As the temperatures rise, our furry canine friends can be found in a spot of shade panting away in the heat of the day, trying to stay cool. You can help them chill by serving up our tasty pupcicles, a frozen treat they’ll go crazy for. Best part of all, it is super simple to make. Henry couldn’t eat them fast enough last summer, and he’s already begging for them again this year and it isn’t even all that hot yet.
