not going to make it

I don't think we will be making it to the Rescue Me walk a thon this weekend. It's too darn hot and I don't think Odin would be able to take it.

I think next year it should be held earlier, like early May so there is no worry of dogs overheating.

Walkathons are usually pretty early in the morning, so it's relatively nice and cool. Diego and I went to his first walkathon last weekend, they had pit stops with water buckets and treats so the dogs wouldn't get overheated. It started at 9 a.m., we were home by 11.

this one doesn't start until 11 though. At 11 it's already warmer than 30C out...and saturday it's supposed to feel like 41C!! So..I still don't want to risk it. Odin gets too warm just going out to pee!

That's so strange! You are right weather for Saturday seems awful, at least right now.

Latest update from TheWeatherNetwork: Due to high temperatures, strong winds or high P.O.P., this weekend may not be suitable for outdoor house work.
