It is 90 degrees today in Staten Island. I am very confused!!
In the winter, Lillie tolerated the cold fine (with or without a jacket). She loved to sit by the vent in my living room when my heat was on.
I noticed today that the heat seems to bother her. My husband and son took her on a trail walk today. It was cool there. Of course she would not go near the water. They drove home with the air conditioner. She then hung out with me for a short period of time in my backyard. She wasn't in the sun that much as she found a cool, shady spot.
Now, she is out. Some panting and heavy breathing. She is sleeping right now as I am sure the weather and the walk has tired her out. Before she fell asleep I fed her some ice chips.
My question is…do basenjis like the hot weather? Do I need to leave my air conditioner at home on all the time for her? I am very confused. Any suggestions and/or advice would be appreciated.
