    Default Wants to go out today!!!

    But I'm worried about leaving the dog home outside on a 30 degree day and the big walk to the bus stop! Sigh.

    The dog will be fine. Ours cope in 50 degree weather - just make sure there is plenty of water available and shade. If you have air con in your house, perhaps leave a door open so the cool air comes through and the dog can lie in front of it while still being outside.

    As for the bus stop walk... No tips, sorry! Haha

    Our dog helps herself to a dip in the pool. Cheeky thing.
    Can you maybe leave the dog in the bathroom with a cool wet towel and a fan on..or something? Take an umbrella for your walk to the bus to shade yourself. Might look a bit....strange, but you'll be cool. See plenty of Asian people do it.

    A clam shell for pup to bathe themselves in in the shade, plenty of water preferably moving or freeze some ice cream containers for large blocks to help keep water from heating and also keep pool cool with shade and water they do quite well expect a couple of cool dirt baths too it's not digging to dig but rather to get to the cooler earth beneath the surface
