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's been 100°F and higher this week and the week to come during the day. At night it's going to still be in the high 80s but mostly 90s. So, I havent been able to take Summer for her evening walk. Heat plus humidity, forget it. She's been real antsy without them (as I expected she would be). She paces, loses interest in toys, and the lack of adequate exercise has got her barking more. Is there anything else I can do with her that will get her tired or keep her entertained while she has to be inside???

Swimming. If you have a kiddie pool or can take her to the beach in the late evenings it serves as great exercise that will keep her cool while she is doing it. Puzzle toys where you hide the treat inside and they have to figure out how to get it out have helped some out. There are several diy puzzle toys out there if you don't want to spend the money on something you think she might not use. My latest addition likes to play tugs with a rope. He isn't interested in the rope if it's just him but if I play with him then it's on.

Another affordable option is to sprinkle her kibble on a blanket and roll it up and twist it so she has to find all the pieces. Uses her brain, and you don't have to go buy a new toy!

Thanks guys! I did find some fun DIY toys/puzzles for her that she actually liked. Also the blanket sounds like a good idea. She's always looking for something to eat, lol. Thanks again. Today is going to be 108

I generally find my boy is a slug in high heat and doesn't need entertainment. It's only 3 AM when it's cool and THEN her wants to play! Our bed is high (between my waist and bottom of my ribs ) so hubby D
And I play a mock wrestle game with him on the bed which leads to zoomies down off the bed into the bathroom, hall door to bedroom back up on the bed and repeat. A few rounds of that and he settles either on the floor or foot of the bed.
