Even though it doesn’t have to do with actual dogs, our furry friends hope you’re staying cool while we’re enduring the dog days of summer!

August is National Brownies at Brunch Month. If that seems weird to you, consider that brownies are in many ways a typical American hybrid food, part cake, part cookie, part candy bar. The brownie was first introduced at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893, specifically for the purpose of conveniently fitting into visitors' boxed lunches. So why not brownies for brunch? Check out this gluten-free and vegan brownie recipe from Sister Pie that will not disappoint!

Does Insurance Cover Animal Damage?
You might assume that your homeowners insurance would cover any and all animal damage. But, most insurance policies treat animal-related damage differently depending on factors specific to the incident. From pests to pets to wild animals, find out if typical insurance policies cover it.
