Re: furry dogs/acclimation


I'm always amazed at Sugar's heat tolerance even w/ that very thick coat
she has. But I'm always trying to coax her in so she doesn't stay out
there too long. She's in a shady flowerbed under a canna canopy as we
speak. It's already so warm here the floor boards on the front porch are
too hot to walk on. Better find my flip-flops....
