"Laissez les bons temps rouler!" This is a French term (most often used by Louisianians, particularly the "Cajuns" of South Louisiana) meaning "Let the good times roll!" This is the attitude concerning life that many Louisiana natives hold dear. It is the state motto, and it exemplifies the joy of living that most Louisianians practice daily. Certainly, if the human natives of Louisiana enjoy life, you can be assured that they make their dog's lives just as entertaining. Louisiana pups can often be found as companion dogs, but, some breeds will join their human family while out hunting and fishing, taking a trip to the dog park, or they may join their humans at one of the many pet-friendly restaurants in the Pelican State.
Spending time with your pup on a steamy Louisiana day does not have to include staying indoors! Certainly, the best time of the day to play outdoors in the Bayou state is during the early morning or late evening hours. However, should you take your pup swimming or boating, any time of day will suffice! Be sure to take plenty of water, and watch your pup for signs of heat distress. Otherwise, "laissez les bon temps rouler"!
