Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

It seems I do this hike every year.
Went with a friend and his black lab.
It was not hot, but there was direct sun.
The black lab was much less affected by the sun than was Bodhi.
Bodhi seemed to be constantly seeking shade and he was panting a lot.
I had lots of water for him, and he was eager to drink it.
Maybe I will have to wait until fall to take him with me on hikes that aren't completely shaded.

O, that looks like a beautiful place to hike (and camp) I had to stop and think when you said that Bodhi was suffering but then it dawned on me that your humidity level is so much higher than mine is here.  Currently you're at the mid 70% and I'm at a high (for me) 45% - it's really odd that my pups do fine at 90° but with a, normally, 10-15% humidity it lets their internal temperatures cool off.

My labs never seemed to be as affected by the heat either, but then when I was living around Houston we were always heading someplace where there was water - beach, river, etc.

It's so beautiful there. I can see why you always go back.

Surprisingly my mostly black gsd mix has a harder time with heat and sun than my Huskies do.

OH that's so beautiful! I'd be there for days!

Kohdi is soooo much fluffier than Mishka, but handles the heat 100 times better than her. So I don't think it's a huskies fluff. A typical hike, and even walks often, with Mishka is exactly how you describe with how Bodhi handled it this time. On our little mountain hike, for example, Mishka will search for shade the entire time, lay down when she gets the chance, pants, even though I stop many more times with her to give her water to drink. If Kohdi is affected by heat, he doesn't show it.
