Boy, summer temps have hit us hard already! When it gets into the upper 80s in May, we are in trouble.
People in upstate NY are generally set for dealing with cold weather. We hunker down, add blankets, stay warm. But hot weather knocks us for a loop as most families do not have any air conditioning. I plan to lug some fans out of the attic tonight!
Hokey is working on his tracking with a little obedience thrown in. He has gotten better about his dumbbell again - at least a bit. I wish he would at least wade in a kiddie pool on these hot days but he rarely will even do that. The ducks love their pool & I put fresh, cold water in a couple of times a day.
Phew, it is warm! Which is why I think dogs need extra treats. That gives us more energy so we can pant harder. Makes perfect sense doesn't it?
As for water, if dogs were designed to get wet, we would have fins or flippers. I just plan to hog the space right in front of the fan!
