I LOVES hot weather!

I likes to sit in the sun and get really, really hot. The cats all thinks I’m crazies and sits in the shade all day, but I loves the sun and the humans thinks I would fries myself if they lets me.

The humans had this funny idea I'd want to sleep in the shade in this silly tent, but I let Oskar haves it instead!

I never want to move into the shade and the humans has to tell me to come out of the sun. They even starts running around making shade for me to try and stop me from getting too hot – the meanies!

The humans wont let me sit out in the sun during the hottest part of the day, so I don’t get heatstrokes. They say heatstroke for doggies is really bad, cause we don’t sweat like humans and can only lose heat through panting and our paws. So we could dies from heatstroke. I likes the sun, but I also likes being alives, so I guess I’d better listen!

Us doggies aren't always sensible when it comes to sun!

The humans always makes sure I have lots of fresh water to drink when it’s hot – they even puts in ice cubes to makes sure it’s nice and cold.

Sometimes, they freezes treats for me in water so I has to lick to get them out and get nice and cold at the same time. They trieds giving me a little paddling pool too, but I just thought that was too much like having a bath and wouldn’t use it.

Swimming is great for hot weather, you gets to be cool and have exercises!

When the weather is hot, they’ll only walk me in the mornings and evenings when it’s cooler and they’ll try and takes me swimming if they can, cause that ways I gets to have exercises AND gets nice and cool.

And of course they’d never, ever leaves me in a car when it’s hot, cause I could get heatstrokes in minutes!
