    Default Maybe a stupid question about Abby and heat

    Abby is anemic and that makes her cold all the time. Last night it was a little cool outside and I had the windows open, she was shivering so much you would think I'd just taken her out the freezer. I stuck her under the comforter with me and she was fine, the shivering stopped (that's how i knew it was the cold and not her phosphorous level).

    Monday is supposed to be 90 degrees here. I know that bulldogs in general can't take the heat so how do I handle this? If I turn the air conditioner on she will be freezing. But if I leave it off she might have a hard time breathing. I have to go to work and my son goes back to school so neither of us will be here to check on her to see if she needs a blanket or something.

    Any suggestions on what I should do? They say it's going to be a long, hot summer so whatever I do has to work.

    Turn the air on and dress her in something to keep her warm enough.

    I can't believe I didn't think of that. I feel an idiot but hey, I said it was a stupid question if that counts.

    What about turning the air in about 80 when your not there? Put a sweater on her at night when you need to turn the air down for you. Just a thought

    I think if you set it to 78 deg. she should be fine.

    I'm just jealous that my life right now doesn't include requiring air conditioning. Pfft. I hate winter.
