Wow this weather and even hotter on Thursday!!
Our dogs have been finding the best ways to keep cool. A favourite in our house has been to make a simple chicken stock (remember no onions) and freeze in ice cube trays – a delicious cool down and treat. Bosco’s favourite place right now is on the cold stone floor outside the back door where he can lie in leisure but also keep an eye on anyone coming up the drive! Raffer who never stays still for a minute is actually joining him in this down time. When it cools down in the evening they both run around playing chase looking much happier.
Fizz is spending most of her time asleep in the outside utility on the cold stone floor and graces us with her presence at meal times – quite right for a lady of her years. Whereas Bear and Peanut are on the go all morning puppy playing and then flop in a heap for the afternoon.
Routines have changed, walking as the cockerel crows and again when he is roosting! Constantly filling our water bottles and their bowls. Now we are all acclimatising , knowing the weather as we do in the UK it could all change next week!
Hope you and your dogs are managing to keep calm and stay cool.
