Well we got some really hot weather here in the last week, into the mid 90’s. I finally dragged the AC unit out and wrestled it into position after much swearing and sweating. But I’m glad I did. As I’ve said before me and heat don’t get along.
Oh but Miss Penny loves it. She wanted outside, every half hour even if it was just to stand on the patio for a few minutes and soak up the rays. Then she’d come back in, flop into her bed like she’d been running for an hour.
I watch her very carefully, because she is a small dog but also because she’s fair skinned. What’s funny is my dog gets a tan, I burn. Yep, her little skin turns brown/black. I asked the vet about it last year because I got worried and the vet said it’s fine. Thank goodness.
Miss Penny had her first of her twice yearly vet check up a few weeks ago, and she came with a clean bill of health. Which made me very happy. And luckily right before this hot weather hit, I had Penny groomed so she got rid of all the hair she had, I’m hoping she appreciated it.
So here’s a picture of Penny out in the sun – it’s hard to get her to stay still for me to get a picture.
And here’s one from later that night after being in and out all day in the sun:
