I know. Until fairly recently we had a pretty hot summer here too. Not as hot as California! But too hot for dogs to charge around in the midday sun! And by 8 at night it was beautiful, so we did most of our running then. It's the best thing for dogs, especially long haired dogs, to stay cool in the day, even if it gets boring, and go out in the early mornings or the evening.
They do hate it though, don't they? How do you tell an active healthy dog "Wait till 8 tonight" when it's only 11am!?
It gets stinking hot here in Aus my dogs hate rain and heat they stick there noses out the door and if too hot or too wet they retreat back indoors.Its a pain as they wont go wee's unless I push them out and go with them and even then its race out do the deed race back in.
Talk about sooks.
Well weather in UK terrible. Cold, windy and rainy. Who would live here? Where has the summer gone? Long for a bit of sunshine, but too hot, or too cold, we have to put up with it!!
Managed to trim my little blind Bichon, Toby, but had to muzzle him. He hates being groomed. Took him to a professional, who now won't groom him because he is agressive. Blindness is making him so much more nervous. Bless him.
