Never On A FRY Day

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:

  1. Do not leave your pet outside in an unshaded area
  2. Never leave your pet on cement that is unshaded
  3. 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)
  4. 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

:-/ We've heard about the heat increase too Noodles! Boo! Buuuut...I guess it could be in 100's, so it's not as bad! ;-) I definitely 10000% agree with all of your warnings...especially leaving pups in cars! Grrr! Well, I hope that you and Molly have a pawesome weekend, even with the heat! Did you hear about the Mitchell Park (Palo Alto) dog day on Sunday?

Summer sure is coming in soon and this is really good advice for pet owners! I used to give my old dogs soft, fresh showers on really hot days to help them cool off. They both used to have a lot of fur (an Akita & a Cocker Spaniel) so that really helped them. :)

Good tips. With summer coming it's always good to remember and important to remember different dogs have different needs. Thanks for joining our Blog Hop@ said...

Good advice, Noodles! Although you forgot about the part where humans are supposed to give their dogs twice the normal amount of treats when the weather gets warm. I think the, um, vet recommended it.

Hope it doesn't get too hot for you and Molly this weekend!

Welcome to the life of pugs! Sigh. You're right, pugs and overheat are the same thing. In Tennessee, we are still in the sixties and seventies so I can still go for pleasant walks. It's going to get real bad real soon though!
