    Oooh that's a good idea, Claire. I've just been laying on the kitchen floor rubbing their bellies with more ice cubes but Maxx keeps eating them as I'm using them

    I would LOVE to know where everyone works, so that they are able to take their dogs with them??? I would LOVE to take my guys to work, but my job would never let it happen. (I work in the food industry )
    For those who do take your fur babies, you are very lucky...

    Jeni,

    I don't work outside the home at the minute so don't need to take my dogs with me - we are home together all day long

    Hi Jeni,
    I work in the transport industry, as long as the boys don't go into the warehouse we are ok, they stop in the offices or i take them for walkies on the field around the back of the warehouse.

    Also the company i work for is family owned and the 2 dogs belong to the directors.

    We have some "sendaway" mats that are cotton on top, with wadding in the middle and waterproof nylon sheeting on the back...

    I soak them before we put them in the car crate, the dogs lie on top and it does help keep them cool.

    Its a bit cooler here today. The dogs are a little happier.

    I took Donna's advice yesterday and rubbed ice cubes on Tobys tummy, he adored it and keeps lying on his back for me to do it again!

    Sounds like it's unseasonably warm all over the world! Here in San Diego we have had unbelievable heat (for our particular area). We put a/c in the house a couple of years ago...for the dogs!!! I keep Jake's belly shaved, he's incredibly hairy and it seems to help keep him cool. I love the cooling mats. Also, I understand that wetting down their paws helps. I read something about this where there was a dog walk and it was really warm that day. They had buckets of water all along the walk to dip the dogs feet in.

    Here in NY its SO HOT..the a/c keeps the house cool but now i can't really take King outside 4 very long cuz its so HOT...so we try to play a lot inside.. I've come up wit a couple of games for King that are both fun and keep him cool...

    1) Is a take a regualr spray bottle w/ cold water and set it to stream...then a shot a couple shot in the air...King tries to catch some other shots just land on him back and he really enjoys it...But I'm not using the bottle like discipline...its more like rain on him

    2) Another one is I block the kitchen off and put a couple of ice cubes on the floor and King goes nuts trying to catch then and eat 'em

    Also wat I've done for King is take a ice cube tray and fill it will either Chicken Broth or diluted Apple Juice and make cubes from that and King loves it...So much more then regalr water ice cubes
