It has been a very late start to summer here in Chicago this year. Very cool and rainy. (Think Seattle.) But Summer arrived in earnest this past weekend. While I had been enjoying lower heating/cooling costs, I finally had to relent and turn the air conditioner on Sunday. Bella and Chief really appreciated it. Through out the heat of the day on Saturday, they stayed inside, under the ceiling fan on the cool hardwood floor. By Sunday evening though, they were back on the couch, laying in soft pillowed comfort.
Just goes to show that dogs like it cool in Summer too. So remember to keep in the cool areas, shade, and have plenty of water to drink during the hot summer months.
