    Default PLEASE be mindful of your bullies in this heat!!!

    Yesterday I heard some disturbing news...

    One of my friends said her neighbors bulldog died of heat stroke over the weekend. It was 107 here w/the heat index… they were mowing the lawn and let their bully stay outside all afternoon. My friend that works at animal control told me of two bullies that were left outside yesterday, one was sleeping under a car for shade.

    I know that most of us on here KNOW of the dangers w/bulldogs and heat. I just wanted to repost a great article by Jill @sheshistory

    PLEASE be very careful to monitor your bulldog in this dangerously hot & humid weather that we are having right now!!!

    Yep it is nasty here as well. Harlea only goes out to do her business and then it is right back inside. Heck I have even insulated the roof of my patio and setup air conditioners for the rabbits to keep them as comfortable as possible.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Amen. They can over-heat so easily and so quickly. I've seen it first hand, and its the scariest thing ever. Thanks for the reminder - please please limit any time outside.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    You can never remind people too much about the dangers of heat with bulldogs! They are so incredibly sensitive to heat and do not know their limits, so it is up to us to protect them.
    Happiness is a warm bulldog!

    I know! My Usko has the most annoying habbit of laying in the hottest place in our yard, the steps... Even when it's not really warm, but the sun is shining the place gets really hot without the wind....Voitto has the sence to lay in the shade.

    So very sad to lose another bully to heat. I've known of losing them
    in lower temps but with high humidity, they're so sensitive! If it's
    hot or even 75* but high humidity, safest bet is inside and out only
    for potty breaks.

    Cami & I send good bully love to all here


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    You cannot overemphasize this. These bullies go outside in 100 degree heat and will stay out if you don't escort them back in.
    Hug your bully today
