Ani reminds us to keep dogs safe in hot weather.
Moving in slow motion,
Reluctant effort spawning sleep
Through open windows
Only the flies are happy,
Making friends with flesh
Cloistered madness yawns,
Stretching fur-clad limbs
This is the time
For tennis balls
And Hot Dogs…
It is officially summer in the northern hemisphere. In England, the weather forecasters are predicting a heatwave. Every year many dogs die from heatstroke. They cannot regulate their body temperature in the same way a human can. Even just a ‘warm’ day can prove fatal… a parked car with an interior temperature of 22° C (71.6° F) may rise to 47° C ( 116.6° F) within an hour. Even with ventilation, dogs suffer and die.
It isn’t just dogs at risk. Protect your pets.
