We're in BC too. My daughter, who's home from school now, will give Lady and Crush mist baths with a spray bottle to help them cool down. We keep the fur shorter too. Also, walks tend to be later and beside the river under the trees. It can be as much as 10 degrees cooler there. Since Lady is a swimmer, there's no stopping her when she sees water, in she goes!
If you're green, you're growing...if you're ripe, you're rotting!
I try to greet the world like my pets do...boundless enthusiasm, intense curiosity and no concept of yesterday and tomorrow.
