Everyone has been complaining about how hot and humid it is. In fact, it’s being called a heat wave. As you know, Sharkey and I love being outdoors, but these excessive temperatures make it really unpleasant for furry creatures – even in the shade!
1 Sharkey, it's really a heat wave! This sun is just too much for us heat sensitive Frenchies!!
2 Franny, I completely agree with you for once! In fact, never leave your animals alone in a parked vehicle. On a hot day, a parked car can become a furnace in no time - even with the windows open - which could lead to fatal heat stroke!
3 Must... SLURRRP... drink... SLURRRP... lots of water to stay cool! Pets can get dehydrated quickly, so give them plenty of fresh, clean water when it's hot outdoors.
4 Francesca, I want to enjoy this view but I think the sun is actually cooking me! I certainly don't want to become what they call a sizzling hot dog!!
5 Sharkey, I have a good plan so that you can enjoy that view. Make sure your pets have a shady place to get out of the sun.
6 I'm going to push this umbrella open and when I say to.........
7 Stick in the set pin!!
8 There now, this is much better sitting in the shade.
9 But, it's still hot in the shade! Be careful to not over-exercise your pets, and keep them indoors when it's extremely hot. Martha - please let us in!
10 Hallelujah! The AC is on!
11 This little fan really helps. I'm NOT moving from this spot for a long, long time.
12 I am so drained from the heat, I can barely....
13 Keep my eyes open...zzzzzzz
