    I know what you mean

    None of my puppers are happy with me....Im outnumbered ARGH! lol....unfortunately there is only so much you can do in this heat.

    They have all been stalking me round the house for the past 3 hours as Im running late on feed time! Unfortunately they are all gobble guts so need to wait for it to cool down a little more before dinner or else they will all regurgitate it anyway....


    bring on the cooler weather

    When it gets too hot and humid my lot are happy to lounge around in the air conditioning, although they get excited if I go outside, they run out and straight back in again! They will come with me when I go down to the back paddock to feed the horses but I do this really early in the morning, and then just before the sun goes down. If feel sorry for the horses, but they don't seem to be affected from what I can see, and they have loads of shadey areas and the dam to cool off in.

    Freeze their dinner in tubs. Hard to guts it when it's frozen. Frosty is out the back now trying to get semi fredo dog dinner out of her Kong.

    Sometimes Frosty just wants to be in the cool, and sometimes she goes and bakes on the concrete that is too hot for me to stand on. Go figure.

    Mine are just about as enthusiastic as I am in this heat. Not in a pink fit would they participate in anything that involved getting up for more than a token pat and hug before retiring again. Obedience training??? We'll wait for winter for that...

    hey each to their own...


    I know mine love to train a little in the coolness of inside before they go back outside to bake in the sun... What is it with white dogs and sunbaking???

    I went out to see my horse today and she was standing in the middle of her paddock as far away from the shade as possible! Then she didn't want a bar of the new fly mask I just bought her!!

    On hot days like today I like to take the opportunity to give George a wash, or he lies down on the cool kitchen floor and I put the fan on him.
