I think she was hot…!!

For those not in the UK, its pretty hot here at the moment! Its 27 celcius here today. Maybe not that hot for some parts of the world, but for here, we're just not used to it :p

Anyway, Maya must have been really hot this afternoon as when i went home at lunchtime and let her and my two pugs into the garden she got straight into the fish pond!! :eek: It has a ledge about 1ft deep of water (sloping kinda, you know?) and she just got on that and led down! The pugs followed her in and paddled around in it too :rolleyes:

Its so odd as she really hates water normally. She wont even walk in puddles and looks at me like im the cruelest mum EVER when i give her a bath :rolleyes: She must have been a hot dog… or just trying to catch the Koi :p

Too bad you didn't get pictures. Mine weren't too keen on water either but when we went to the beach on a hot day they get in the water to cool off.

Yeah i have no camera or i'd have run to grab it 😃 lol

I've yet to take Maya to the beach, i just cant imagine she'd get in the water with all the others, but maybe if it was hot enough she would!

Wow!!! And that's relatively cool for those of us in desert county. Here the highs are over 37 and Medjai is just now letting me put water on him. He doesn't like it, but if gets him cooler and cleaner after running around at the park.

Michael,
Best and fastest way to cool them off is stand them in water so the bottom of their feet are covered…

Maya must have been hot, i love this weather but our big dog Max doesn't cope well in the heat and pants constantly. This afternoon we filled the plastic bath my husband uses for work with cold water, max climbed in and sunk down with a contented groan. However when i went in and returned with the camera he climbed out.
Talking of the beach when i first took my basenj Benji i dont think he knew what the sea was because he saw a Seagull floating on top of the water and immediatelyran into the sea, quite a way out. I was very surprised and so was he, it was like a cartoon when the character runs off a cliff and only notices when they are in mid
air.Needless to say he never did it again and avoided puddles for the rest of his life,

Wow, that is so funny. Otis has been walking around in the puddles the kids make with trheir pool but that is just aabout all of it. We are going to the beach later in the summer so I am looking forward to see if he will get in the water there..
