RE: furry dogs/acclimation

Noreen and all....

Not debating you, but somehow it is hard to think about a big black chow
with all that fur not being hot in 95+ weather. I can't even fathom me
not being hot!:)

A friend of mine has a chow which I dog sit when he is out of town. That
dog sheds something terrible... does yours know the seasons and do the
same? Just curious.

And I do have a cocker spaniel and she was panting so bad with our heat
waves even in the a/c house. DH took the shaver to her(poor thing) and
she stopped. Seemed to appreciate having less (read no) hair, although
if she ever seen herself in the mirror.........:)
