    Default Please watch your bully in the heat

    more bad news today. Most of you already know this but maybe a good reminder for a new bully owner. today a good friend of ours who also raises EBs called and said one of her 1 year old pups she sold a year ago died today of heat exhaustion. She is just besides herself. The owner did not heed her warning about bullies and this Texas heat. He took the little guy for a walk a little to long today and when they got home the bully laid down on the floor and a few minutes later dies from heat exhaustion. So please please please watch your bullies in the heat. Things like this are so preventable.
    Have a Great Bully Day.

    So sad to hear.... I bumped into a lady a few days back who was walking an EB and a pug at 2 in the afternoon here in Miami ( 96*degrees). I told her it was too hot for the dogs and to look at them panting. She started explaining to me some jibber jabber about how it was because of the shape of their face...Poor dogs were looking at me like help! I asked if I could at least give them a little water and pour a little on them and their feet. She looked at me like I was crazy!! =( I wanted to strangle her....Thank God my fiance' was with me and pulled me away.

    omg, I just did the fahrenheit to celcius conversion and am appalled at the results. I'm frightened of a mere 80 degrees for Stig!

    That is just tragic.

    How hot was it??

    Delilah goes outside when it's hot but not for very long. And I wouldn't take her on a long walk when it's really hot or anything. But now I'm paranoid..

    That's why I walk my dogs in the evening and I let them set the pace. When the evenings are still warm I always take a bottle of water. Not taking any chances.

    That's just awful ... and how irresponsible of the owners, especially after being obviously warned about this by the breeder!!!

    Maggie and Daddy do not go out in the heat. The other dogs do because they are "sensible" and come straight back in themselves. But what is it with bullies and the sun-bathing addiction!!!! I have to drag their sorry butts back in the house every time they go out to potty!! Maggie is the worst she will slink off to the far end of the deck and throw herself on her back like a little fat pot-bellied pig!!!! Then of course I get the stink-eye when I shout at her to get her little hairy-self back inside!!
