Ah, summer! Time for good reads, water play and spirited games of Frisbee fetch. Lucky for you, we’ve covered all the bases in the July/August issue. The special “Lit Mix” is a veritable picnic of stories that will make you smile, sigh and think—and you may even discover a new writer or two. Smart water-ways are also covered; be inspired by a backyard water feature for Border Collies amusement, and learn how to keep your dog safe while on a boat or at poolside. The Frisbee is 50 this year, and we’re celebrating its anniversary with a trio of stories on this high-flyer—its creation, its use in scientific research, and its “Disc Dog” practitioners.
