When it is summer out, the hotter the better, Ninjia just loves to be outside to sunbathe. She will lay out in her kennel sprawled out basking in the sun. Yes and she's been known to fall asleep as well. No matter how hot it is, she will want to be out enjoying the sunshine. If she cant get out, she will find the only spot of sun inside and get her "tan" indoors.:) Even if you make sure you have something for her to get some shade and cool off, it doesn't matter she has to have that sun.
