Woof! We have been sweltering in a heat wave that has been affecting quite a bit of the country. Yesterday, the humidity was oppressive, and the end result was a huge electrical storm around 9 p.m.
I am staying in and keeping cool. When I do venture outside, it is always on the grass to protect my paws. Mom bought me a little swimming pool and, I must say, I want nothing to do with it. I prefer to lie in the shade when the evenings permit!
I would like to remind everyone of the “7 second rule”: If the pavement/street/asphalt/whatever is too hot for you to hold the back of your hand on it for 7 seconds, then it is too hot for your dog’s paws. They will easily burn and blister. Please be mindful of this when choosing to walk your pets.
(It’s too hot to do much else!)
Woof! Love, Maggie
