View Full Version : Summer Dogs?

Alright so I'm reading "A Dog's Life" by Ann M. Martin, and in one chapter it says how the dog is a "summer dog" basically the family got the dog from the pound, played with it for the summer at their summer home, and when summer ended they just left the house and the dog with it. It said how they did that before too, like it was an annual thing. This seemed EXTREMELY odd to me, so is this an actual thing that people do? If it is that's actually sick. I never heard of anything like that before.
