Only One Morning Walk Due To Heat

Today will be hotter than yesterday so I know it will still be above 86° at 9pm and a heat index around 105°. We did not walk last night even after waiting past 9pm. It will be the same today. By 8:30am today it was 86° and very humid. You can see the hounds didn’t hangout long but had one of their fastest walks this year. They led the pace.


Trained To Go No Further

Because I live 100′ from a major highway I have tried to train all my hounds now and in the past, not to go into the front yard. There they might find a reason to take off running toward the highway like to chase a rabbit, maybe a bird or anything else they find interesting. So when they are outside and I walk down the driveway to check the mailbox, they always watch me as I return up the hill, to make sure I am not going somewhere without them.

Heidi Barely Gets Outside

Even with some wind to cool the temps down outside and it was just after her lunch, Heidi thought about it long enough to know she wanted back inside with air conditioned rooms as soon as possible. She looked at me as if to say “do you really expect ME to stay outside in this heat”?
