    We don't really have to worry about heat YET.....right now it's 60 to 70 (70 if we are lucky). But I always watch them regardless...since they aren't use to anything above 60 to 70. We have the kiddy pool set up (which is currently filled with rain water), cool collars for outdoor play...and I have a water bottle that comes with me for each car ride. Air conditioned house (which is not being used....but the heat is.

    The guy who designed the kool collar lives in Oregon. In 70 degree weather..two dogs died from heat exhaustion. So..it doesn't matter where you live. North, South, East West........if you own a dog, you need to be aware.

    THAT is heartbreaking! I have told so many people about how this breed and other short nose pups can die so easily and I swear they look at me like I am just a paranoid mom. VERY sad that it takes something so horrible for people to learn.

    That is heartbreaking! I am so sad for that poor little guy.

    I'm only in NY, and today I was worried about Hambone. he was outside for a couple hours in my sis' yard @ 85 degrees. He was seemingly very hot and uncomfortable. I felt a little weird for being so concerned, but after reading this I am glad I took him home to rest in AC. I hope the owner doesn't make such an awful decision ever again. The poor little guy couldn't say "help me"

    Now, that's a cute name!! LOL

    I get up at the crack of dawn to walk my two - i'm out there for the first hour of daylight ,literally. It's not even totally light out yet. I am in sweats and a long-sleeve shirt so i figure it's cool enough out for them. But after that, it's no exercising in the heat. My bull will vomit if overheated it seems. Once (long story) he got accidentally taxed in the heat and i had to leave him to go get the car and drive over to get him.
