Havs and The Heat

Hi All. Has anyone had a Hav that just gets sleepy and un-energetic in the Heat. Radar seems to be sluggish today. Not sure if it's the heat or if it's the fact that my Wife was up all night and he didn 't get a full night of uninterupted sleep because she has had him up with her for part of the night. Any Advice?

Thanks

Derek

Kodi is pretty good with the eat, but Shelby is not. She is a panter from day one. I have had her checked by the vet about this, and he said she is fine. I asked again when we were there last week, but he couldn't find a problem. It ha been warm and muggy here the past few days, and they have slept more than usual.

My guys all struggle a bit with the heat. Lily because she is 17lbs - little piggie And Lexi is 1/2 black, with Logan being maily black. They pant a lot too. I just keep lots of water available & shade. They do spend much more time inside on those days, and seem to ask to go out a lot less.

Gucci girl isn't crazy about the heat either, she'll crawl under a chair and elect to take a nap! She even did this when other Havs came over for a playdate......Actually ALL the havs did! haha....so yeah, I'd say its pretty common.

Great thanks a bunch. My Wife wanted to call out the cavalry because she got worried. Anyone work a night shift and have a Hav with a messed up sleeping pattern. My wife kept Radar up for a bit last night and I think he got sleepy during the day because when he should have been snoozing he was up playing.

My husband often will stay up to do some his paperwork and he lets brutus stay up with him. Even if he is supposedly dozing on the couch next to him, Brutus is more tired the next day because he wasn't sleeping as soundly.

So far, Dusty is fine in the heat, and it's been in the 90's and up for some time here already. She is a native Arizona girl though and knows where the A/C is--indoors!
She needs her beauty sleep though.

Dreamer likes the heat. Tripp HATES it. He loves the snow, ice & rain. But when it got hot outside, he pants a lot & cant wait to come in. I have noticed also he does sleep more now that its hot out. He actually sleeps ON the a/c vent.
