DuPont Wealth - August 2019


Enjoy the Weather While Keeping Your Pup Comfortable

With all this late-summer sunshine, it’s the perfect time to take your dog out for some fun. And while spending time basking in nature’s beauty can be a great source of fun and exercise for you and your pets, it’s important to keep a careful watch on your dog’s core temperature to prevent heat exhaustion. There are several detectable signs of heat exhaustion that you can watch for, including abnormal lethargy, vomiting, or a brightly colored blue or red tongue. Here are some tips to keep your canine cool this summer. WATER IN ALL ITS FORMS While certain dog breeds thrive in hotter climates, all pups need a little extra care when it comes to staying hydrated during the summer. For starters, always make sure they have ready access to drinkable water. If you are going on an adventure, consider bringing a collapsible water bowl. If you are doing some backyard chilling, consider filling up a small wading pool with water for your pooch to splash or lounge in. SOME INVALUABLE INVENTIONS There are many contraptions to help you keep your canine cool in the summer heat. Booties to insulate their toes and protect their paw pads from the hot asphalt, cooling vests that reflect sunlight off darker fur, and pressure-activated cooling pads are just a few of the gizmos you can purchase to stave off those scorching temps. The Dog People, a website powered by, also

recommends making frozen “pupsicles,” a yogurt-based frozen treat that can satisfy doggy cravings while keeping them cool. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE While fun water toys and helpful cooling inventions are great,

the best thing you can do to keep your dog cool is be careful about when you decide to go outside. Taking your pup out in the early morning or later in the evening, when the sun isn’t at its highest point in the sky, will help keep them cooler in the long run. Additionally, keep in mind that some breeds deal with the heat better than others. If you’re unsure, do a little research to determine your dog’s susceptibility to heat exhaustion. Just because the heat is sizzling doesn’t mean your dog should be! Keep these tips in mind before taking your canine out in the summer sun. They will thank you for it!


AUGUST 15 What is a self-directed IRA, and should you have one? Special guest, Kirk Chisolm SEPTEMBER 19 I’ve been injured in an automobile accident. Now what should I do, so I don’t screw up my claim? OCTOBER 17 How to escape the 401(k) trap.

This month, the clash over Arturo de Modelo’s conflicting living wills comes to a head, as Greg DuPont makes his case at the hearing over their validity. In the aftermath, Chelsea de Modelo struggles with the knowledge of her husband’s apparently forgotten insurance policies revealed by Carl D’Antonio. Does their existence bolster her convictions that Vivian Wainwright and her sons were behind Arturo’s bizarre accident? Or are they really forgotten policies at all? Could her husband have been intentionally hiding them from her all along? DuPont will need all his wits about him — and the help of another associate — to even begin to get to the bottom of the strange case of Arturo de Modelo.
