Re: Heat and high humidity
We went out for a short walk this afternoon. We have been indoors since the early morning walk and didn't realize it was very hot and humid. Benji and Lizzie were excited at the prospect of going out. But within a few minutes, they started to pant. I met a neighbor, while we were chatting Benji started to whine persistently. He has never done that before. I took them home immeditately thinking they needed water and they were panting for a long time. We were out for just about 10 minutes, not in the direct sun.
In CA, when it used to be hot they would be less active too. Since we have never lived in the hot and humid climate, I just want to know if this was a normal response to the climate. They are doing fine inside the house (the airconditioner is on). But they are quiet, and sleeping a lot.
