we had a super hot day yesterday. if you follow us on facebook then you saw this picture (though it was much darker because it was uploaded from my phone, pre-photoshop). it showed our temp at 103° but after i took this picture, we climbed another degree and we topped out at 104°!
yes it was hot and yes bailey was wearing a shirt. i'm not a bad dog mom, she was cold because we had the air conditioner on. when we went outside, i did take the shirt off of her.
this would probably be a good time to remind everyone of a few summer precautions: always have plenty of clean, fresh water available for your dogs. --- provide them with plenty of shady spots so they can get away from the hot sun. --- exercise them in the morning or in the evening when the weather is a bit cooler. --- whether you offer them ice cubes or not is a topic groovy goldendoodles was discussing yesterday. bailey can't chew an ice cube but i do add ice to her water bowl. --- dogs can get heat stroke, just like people. know the signs and the treatment. --- and NEVER leave them in a parked car.
until we meet again my friends, stay cool-
