    Last year was one of the hottest on record - we had nearly two weeks of over 40 - it was getting towards 50 at one point which is ridiculous for here. My dogs - that was Billie, Cappy and Flash at the time had cool mats, collar collars and wet towels. I was with as often as possible and left a fan running.

    They all survived - I heard so many horror stories of older dogs dying because of people's lack of attention to their special needs.

    In Qld in 2001/2002 many elderly humans were dying because of people's lack of attention to their special needs.

    We all have so much to learn. *sob*

    Hi Kelpiesmum.

    I haven't asked them but I guess they'd ring my mobile, get me in Perth and suggest I come and get my dog and move her to a "safer place". Blurk. And I'd ring my mum, and ask her to go get the dog - and hope that she can get up there and back to the flat without incident. And mum wouldn't be happy.

    I have boarded Frosty at the Vet but it's not very nice place for a farm dog to be. I only did it because she needed medicine three times a day at the time and I thought that was a bit much to ask of my sister in law (no chance of my brother helping).
