After a few days of cooler temperatures, this weekend is supposed to heat up A LOT. We are talking temperatures close to the NINETIES. With our relative humidity, this means it will be opressively hot for Molly and me.
Molly doesn't look like she would overheat, but with all that fur, she really feels it. And me, well I am a PUG and that is synonymous with overheated!!!
So what can a DOG and PUG owner do to prevent their beloved pet from overheating? Well, here are somethings one should NOT do:
- Do not leave your pet outside in an unshaded area
- Never leave your pet on cement that is unshaded
- Do not forget to have plenty of water for your pet to drink (in bowls or a pool. Most dogs I know cannot drink from a hose)
- Do Not EVER leave a pet alone in a car even WITH the windows partly open
Your best option is to just leave your pets inside where it is cooler and protected. My pen is in the coolest room in the house so that I ALWAYS have someplace to go to when I get hot. And change that walk to the cooler hours of the day like early morning or after the sun goes down. I PUGsonally loves loves loves to walk in the early morning. So fresh and wonderful. . .
Have a GREAT weekend everyPUGGY!
HAPPY THOUGHT OF THE DAY: Early morning walks are so great for starting the off on the right foot
