Congrats on your new baby Susan, and the new one to arrive shortly. I am in Texas as well, in Houston, were are you located? Nce to have you onboard..
I have had Scooby for 6 years, he is a little over 7 now and been 25lbs the whole time. Penny is guessed to be about 1 year old and weighs in at 13 lbs. I am in the New Braunfels Area between Austin and San Antonio
Scooby was adopted by us from the Humane Society in Hawaii he was a stray. Penny was found a stray, too and I am adopting from a very nice foster mom.
I know, we had 101 with a heat index of 105 here yesterday. Scooby spend his day inside, except for a few minutes to do his business and then an after dinner walk (about 20 minutes) then right back inside. It is just too hot here, I don't understand how some people around my neighborhood can leave their dogs outside all day long, even with water and shade it get's way too hot here in Texas and I don't want anything to happen to my baby
I am in Jackson TN and our heat index has been 105 or so for the past week with no end in sight. We walk early in the morning and then just out for potty breaks until close to dark and then we play Frisbee for a while and then come in. Bella likes water too. Haven't thought about a pool. I can only imagine it wouldn't last long if she got bored and decided to chew it. Would love to see some pictures of the pool playing.
