    The ambient temperature is quite high for this time of year. In centigrade, we're at 20 C instead of the normal 10 C, and in F it was 68 instead of a normal 50 F. I have started to bring along cold water as Willow ends up panting on walks now. After about twenty minutes Willow will look for a cold drink and then about every twenty minutes thereafter. I think that both Wilow and I had forgotten how hot sunny days can be for a heavy coated Sheltie.

    On the plus side, Willow and I have enjoyed sitting outside in the garden in the morning. I read, she gets up on the loveseat beside me and just cuddles for an hour or so. Last night when she went out for her bathroom before bed, she hopped up on the loveseat and stared at me trying to coax me to go sit with her. It was a near thing as a Sheltie stare is hard to resist. :)

    I always wonder how mine know when the stove timer has two minutes until it goes off. That’s when inevitably one will curl up beside me or in my lap for a cuddle. I’ve been known to let something burn. You aren’t kidding about resisting that Sheltie stare!

    Been warm and really windy here, in the 80's today, yuck. We usually don't walk until 5 or 5:30 so at least it had cooled a bit by then. Nice of you to carry cold water for Willow.

    Ann so funny. :yes:
    I do not think Minnie thinks in those lanes at all.
    She just adapts.

    But strange, when we are out in the garden for work
    then she knows that it will rain in 2 min - then she goes into shelter.
    Should we go for a walk she will not care :confused2:

    Last Monday it was 80F here. Tuesday we had snow. Wednesday was in the 60s. Thursday was in the 70s. Yesterday was in the 40s. Today is in the 70s. Tomorrow and Wednesday in the 50s. Then snow again on Tuesday. So when we go out we take water for Oberon and a sweater and coat for me, over my short-sleeved shirt.

    We haven't had snow but we did have flakes. Always fun this time of year; dress in layers! We've had our windows open, then closed. Furnace on. then off, fans on. Dogs want to go out on the deck to sun, then they want the awning out for shade then they want in, then out. Might be crashed under the table, or curled up under a blanket.

    Supposed to finally get some rain today, sure hopes so as it is DRY!
