Cool Hot Weather

Hope all is well. It has been HOT in the SF Bay Area the last 2 days. How do your havs like the weather? Do you have any tricks to keep them cool?

Sally, my two don't venture out when it's hot. Both don't like it much. They lie on the cold hardwood floor and drink a lot of water.

Best, Poornima

We're suppose to get really hot here tomorrow. Mine will probably lie around on the stone floor all day. Last summer I gave them ice cubes to play with out on the patio.

Mine like the bathroom tile.
When ever I put ice in their bowl they take it out to play hockey

splayed legs

Mine just splay their back legs out or lay up with feet in the air. We have tile floors they enjoy. Riki will still run when it is hot...Daisy won't though.

Just got back from Kayaking where I got a little sea sick. Nothing like being hot and sick at the same time...at least I could dunk my feet in the kelp and water. Next time I am taking something before going out.

Good to be back home with my dogs though!

Yesteday, the puppy pen had a bunch of puppies sleeping on their backs, snoozing with a fan over the area. The other dogs would lay on the tile or go outside to lay on the cool grass in the shade. I did some yard work yesterday and Ruger, with his blue conehead, just wanted to hang out in the grass. (I was glad too, because he keeps running into my bare legs with that e-collar and it hurts! LOL)

It was 103 here yesterday. Really hot. The dogs stayed inside, mostly. I have a window A/C unit that can keep the back of the house reasonably cool. So, we all hibernated in there yesterday

At least it is DRY heat....

"Dry heat" says she who lives with the ocean on one side of her and the bay on the other.

Granted, it is nothing like the humidity of the midwest & southern and east coast states. Ick!

My crew lays low for the most of the day~ kicking it on the cool tiles. Even Mouse was pretty low key for most of the day. When the kids got home from school, they went swimming, so Mouse got to go swimming too!
That seemed to help her cool down a bit. Plus I am giving everyone short haircuts this week~

Mine lie in front of a huge fan I run once it starts to get stale inside from having the house closed up. I sure hope this heat stops soon, it's not getting cool enough at night to make the house cold and help it stay decent until the sun goes down.
