"Cuban" Ache doesn't like this hot weather...

Ache did great in the airplane. She slept a lot and as long as she could see me, she was fine. I had no problems with the carrier. They just asked me if she could stand in it and I said yes. That was it. The carrier fits perfectly under the seat, I didn't need to push it down a bit. So everything went great. But this cuban girl hates the hot weather... she looks tired and is panting a lot. I don't know if it is because of this change in temperature or if she decided that it was cool to begin blowing coat while on vacation but I am finding a LOT of mats in her coat every day. ugrrrr She is hating grooming time so she is getting a lot of cheese these days. I am really happy to see my family and everybody thinks I am a crazy mother of a spoiled Hav puppy. I am OK with that. haha Merry Christmas, guys.

Merry Christmas, and glad your flight went well!

I know that when I got home from Taiwan, I was FREEZING for the first few days. I think when the weather changes a lot, SUDDENLY, it's hard to adjust to. That's probably part of Ache's problem.

I completely clip out Kodi's belly in the summer, though, going as far forward as possible without it showing when he is sitting or standing. You can't see it at all unless he rolls over, but it gives him some "breathing room", and when he's really hot, he'll lie down and cool his belly off on the ground.

I'm so glad the flight went well. Now you can get to enjoy time with your family over the holidays. I'm sure Ache will adjust over time . . . then you'll have to go through it in reverse when you come back.

Have a wonderful Christmas and give Ache an extra hug from me.

I'm glad the flight went well and there wasn't a problem with the carrier. Isn't it funny how most havanese don't like hot weather. I remember reading somewhere that their coats are designed to keep them cool but you'd never know it.

Enjoy the holidays with your family!

I am glad the flight went well, I was thinking about you. Lizzie could not stand the heat this summer. We have a pool and I would sit under the umbrella with her and she would want to go in the house. Now that it is snowing she loves it out! Have a wonderful time with your family!

I'm glad to hear the flight went well. Stella's the same way... if she can see me, she does just fine. But she loves the heat. Happy Holidays!

Glad to hear your flight went well and that the carrier worked so well. Info to file away for future reference! We took a road trip to Mt. in October, and got the 'spoiled dog' comments - just because we had gotten Augie a new car seat for the trip. How warm is it where you are? You will no doubt get all acclimated and then freeze when you return home! Have a wonderful visit with your family!! I loved having Augie on our trip as I didn't have to waste any energy wondering how he was doing!
