Suggestions for the hot weather anyone?
We are having some really hot and humid weather in the UK at the moment...quite unusual actually..
Anyway Leo sounds like a little train at times he's panting so hard. Any one who lives in a country where this is the norm got any ideas on keeping him cool.
Im not walking him when its hot, Ive got a fan going that's at floor level,,,he's asleep next to it now , His water bowl is constantly topped up and Im giving him ice chips
Is there anything else I can do?

I live in the UK too, but one thing I find helpful is opening doors and windows early, while it's still fairly cool, and then when the sun moves round to shine into the room, shut windows and draw curtains. People who live in hot countries such as north Africa and the middle east often have houses with thick walls and small windows that don't let the sun in; drawing curtains is the best we can do to produce cool shade indoors.

meljoy - you're doing all you can, so stay with it. Kate H gave good advice about keeping the house cool. That's how we did it before air-conditioning, here in the hot, humid South in the U.S.
