Sorry to use the term snow dogs, I know its a generalisation. Just wanted some opinions on people who choose dogs such as Alaskan Malamute, Siberian Huskie ect while living in a tropical, high humidity area. Would like to hear from owners in this situation. I see people regulary walking these breeds in the middle of the day around Cairns. Makes me feel sorry for the dog, I know that any dog should not be walked in the heat of the day & I wonder why the owners choose to do this. While working as a vet nurse my wife had a dog come into a Sydney clinic suffering from heat exhaustion & die on the floor before anything could be done for the poor thing, the vet was beside himself at the stupdity of the owner of the dog. Makes me wonder where the minds of these people are at!!
