One told me their estimate for repairing/replacing was around $7K! and my other neighbor who did get theirs "repaired" said theirs still isn't working well! i've just been putting it off (obviously!) and in the past seemed to get by okay, but that was before i had my little guys. I'll make a trip to the store tomorrow to look for a portable. These are the days when I wish I had those cooling vests already!

    Yup! I feel your pain! You can get a couple portables and at least stay somewhat comfortable! And who has $7000 laying around? I bet you are spending a ton on edison bills too? The portables can be set by timer or temp. Might get you through the summer...we got ours at home depot. @JeannieCO gave a great description and installation instructions! Not hard at all..just get correct size. Good luck! This was the first official time of using cooling vest. It calmed him down and helped!

    I need to get violet a cooling vest she loves outside I let her out to go potty and then back inside. I put ice in her water and freeze wet rags. She gets her self in trouble so she gets put on time out in her kennel, (its in our living room) I put the frozen rag in her kennel its like having her very own AC unit in there lol we have a swap cooler it sucks! But violet knows where to lay in the kitchen to get the full blast of cold air

    This is so, so sad. And so preventable.

    I feel so badly for those people. It's absolutely tragic..this really shouldn't have happened.

    @JAKEISGREAT - Can't recall if there's a thread on it already, but where did you get Jake's cooling vest? I'm currently ordering the Kool collars from CPP. It's been mighty hot here even at night and I just discovered that Stiggy likes watching the baseball and soccer games at the park so we're planning taking him to the evening games.

    If that was someones child there would be criminal charges. Sad that bullies don't have the same protection of the law. Negligence is negligence!!! Horrid .

    This is tragic and shameful, poor lady to have to go away to 1 funeral and have this call that 2 of her dogs had "fainted" INCREDULOUS!!! I hope she sues.
    @JAKEISGREAT I found myself in a panic reading about your experience I was so worried for poor Jake and scared for you.
    for you both and your mommy of the week for me acting so fast to get Jake cooled off.

    I'd be the one going to jail if I were Mr or Mrs Waters. I don't think I would even speak tp the owner of said kennel. I would find who let them out in the heat and I would break their arms in 4 places.

    This is a serious case of negligence and dog murder.
    Even on the most awful of days, Hambone can get a smile out of me. I don't know what else to say other than, the bond one has with their dog is one of the most special things there is.

    @lexterwayne I know it is a long way from your house but if worst came to worst Lexter can always come and stay with us if an emergency came about, we could even meet half way.
