    Yesterday it was like 100 and something.
    I couldn't find my dog, so I start looking for her and I find her in the bathroom laying down of the tile. I guess it was cool there! LOL Then last night she slept in the closet cause there is tile in there and I figure it was cool in there, too! Just though I'd share! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Send Wisconsin Pooch to Texas, and let's do a test if he still likes 'hot' then?

    Lucy, my avatar dog, has figured out the joys of the AC floor vent. She comes in and flops down belly first on top of the one in the kitchen. [​IMG]

    I used to live in a house with a really old bathtub made of iron. My Newfoundland would sleep in the tub on hot days, because the iron stayed cool a long time. I had no air conditioning and was in the city, so once in a while, if it was REALLY hot I'd put a couple of inches of cold water in the tub for him. He was in heaven then!

    Here in Michigan, anything above 80 degrees is hot.

    We have a pond, so our dog "trolls" on hot days. She goes deep enough so that her back is covered, lifts her hind legs to float and pulls herself along by her front legs. Then when she's good and wet, she comes out and naps in the shade.
