August 30, 2010 (San Diego's East County)-- It’s that time of year when having a barbecue is a good idea, especially with how spectacular the weather has been lately. Bringing your dog to a barbecue is a great idea! It gives your dog the opportunity to socialize with other dogs and humans. You might think you aren’t harming your dog by offering him or her a scrap of leftovers, but it can have some severe consequences.
