Oh boy oh boy!

Summer is here and the sun feels so friendly on my fur.

I just love to be out in the park in the sunshine.

But when I feel a bit too hot, I quickly look for a shady place where I can lie down and relax.

I’m very lucky my owners look after me in Summer and help me stay sun safe.

They notice when I pant badly and need to drink a lot of water.

I can’t speak human, so those are the ways in which I can show them that the heat is getting to me.

They realise that my nose gets sunburnt and my feet hurt on the hot paths and hot sand on the beach too, so we take our walkies in the early morning or late afternoon.

And wow! Those meaty ice water treats they make especially for me are so delicious and cooling.

Just the thing to cool down a hot doggie!

Sometimes my humans take me out in the car. I love the ride, but it does get hot in that metal box.

Thank goodness my owner understands this and keeps the air-conditioning on or winds down my window a little.

It is such fun the way the breeze flaps my ears and ruffles my fur!

Sometimes I have to stay in the car while the humans do their shopping – I really don’t like this, as the

heat makes me feel unwell.

One of my doggie friends actually died of heat stroke when her owner left her in the hot car – it was only for a few minutes too!

I much prefer to stay home in a shady spot with my water bowl handy.

Fortunately my owner knows this is best for me.

They also know to put me on a wet, cold towel if I do get overheated.

So my advice, keep looking for the shade and drink lots of water.

That way you will avoid being a hot doggie this Summer.
