Be a Cool Dog Owner & Keep your Dog Cool!     Those Dog Days of Summer are well upon us and I can't help but feel extra uncomfortable for my black dog, Buster.    The funny thing is that he doesn't really seem to mind the extreme heat we're experiencing in PA right now (just as he doesn't seem to mind 6 feet of snow in the middle of blistering winter storm either).  This is when we have to be extra careful for our pets.  Yes, make sure water is available at all times for our pets, but that's not always enough. Here in PA, we're in the midst of a heat wave and expected to hit record temperatures.  When we have extremely hot weather like this, we keep Buster active in a cool way.  If he needs a potty break, we take a quick walk and try to stay in the shade.    For his exercise outside, we...

    Pottstown Home Inspector: Oil Tank Scam   In addition to being a Pottstown Home Inspector, I'm also a landlord in the Pottstown and Reading areas.  I came across a little scam recently that has to do with oil tank gauges and I wanted to pass along this information to all the landlords and homebuyers out there.  Some of you might have read an earlier post I made It's no April Fool's Joke- Tenants moved!  In this blog, I mentioned that our problematic tenants were finally moving... and it seemed too good to be true.  When the tenant (we'll call him "Dan") told us he was moving on April 1st, we found it quite comical that he picked April Fool's Day for this special event and wondered what was in store for us.     It's a long story with this tenant and we can't possibly paint the comple...
