Close call with dog dog recently
My poor pup! Had a case of heat exhaustion while out for a walk. Thanks to a neighbor of mine, we got him back home and got him drinking water to cool his core body temp. It was close. He was dizzy and could barely walk as a result. I was glad my neighbor was there. He could have died from that!

Sadness! Poor puppy, thank goodness your neighbor was so kind. You make them something as a thank you gift.

I carry a water bottle for pets for our dog. it can clip it on his collar. Lol. Yesterday we were all out all day -- and our dog drank like almost the whole bottle. I'll see if I can scrounge a picture.

Found it! Ours is actually a little smaller but it's the same idea. Water trickles into it as they drink so you don't waste a lot.

It's so frackin' hot right now. That's why I have 3 big bowls filled with water for King.

I really shouldn't laugh, but your thread title says "dog dog" and I really can't help it.

... this is my signature!

Not only that, the humidity makes it difficult for dogs to cool themselves by panting.

I have to keep in mind that, plus the fact that he's over 8 and beginning to slow down.
