Summer fun is just around the corner—and a big part of that fun is summer vacation, a chance to get out and explore the world with your two-legged and four-legged family members.

Whether your summer vacation plans call for a series of staycations in your own hometown, weekend getaways to the lake or beach, or a multi-day dream vacation, safety is always a top priority. You can help make sure the memories you bring home from your travels are good ones with these easy tips for summer dog travel:

1.    Buckle up. Just as you buckle your children in the car, dogs need to be safely restrained in the car as well. A safe dog travel study by Kurgo and AAA revealed that only 16 percent of dog lovers are restraining their dogs in the car, but it’s very easy to secure your dog with a car safety harness that utilizes your car’s seat belt system. Along with buckle systems, other safe options include crates and carriers as well as booster seats for small dogs.

In the heart of Merida, the capital city of the Mexican state of Yucatan, lived a woman called Margarita Suarez. She was well-known for her charity towards animals. Each morning, she would feed the 20 or so stray dogs and cats that showed up at her home. As any animal lover knows, word gets out among strays and they seem to communicate to other strays which homes can be trusted. No matter where her travels took her, she could be trusted to have a bag of dog food in the trunk of her car so she could feed any animal in need that she happened upon. 

When Suarez recently passed away after battling a long-term illness, her funeral took an unexpected turn. The same stray dogs that she devoted her mornings to began showing up at the service. But, not just the service. As her body was waiting in the funeral home to be prepared for burial, the dogs waited as well.

This year, Rover.com took an early survey to discuss which Irish names are the most popular among pet lovers in the USA. The result is a fun, informative infographic that gives us an overview of our most favorite Irish things in the US. As it turns out, Americans are pretty obsessed with the Emerald Isle. Here are a few other things you may not know:

  • Louisville, KY surprisingly ranks #1 for the most Irish-named dogs; San Francisco ranks #1 for most Irish dog breeds, with neighboring city Vallejo ranking #1 for most Irish food & beverage dog names.
  • Irish Actor Liam Neeson (who does not appear to be a fan of wolves or wolf lovers) nevertheless appears to lead the pack for actor-inspired Irish dog names. We won't know his feelings on wolves for sure until we ask him, but rest assured, we'll be reporting comments when/if we do.
  • Guinness made the list for #3 alcohol-related top dog names in 2014. Surprising considering all of the other amazing dog brews on the market!

And now, here is the list of popular Irish dog names!

It’s that time of year when we’re all a wee bit Irish, and this St. Patrick’s Day, we’re taking a look at a few dogs who lay claim to a bit of Irish heritage. The emerald isle has also birthed some beautiful dogs, (most with the instinctive urge to run away at any given time). We’re not sure if that characteristic also applies to their kilted men, but we suspect it’s a possibility.

Without further ado, here are the dog breeds of Ireland and a look at what you can expect if you bring them into your life!
