I have Finnie entered in a show, he's entered on this Friday and Sunday. However it's outside and the temperature on Friday is supposed to be in the low 90's...how do you keep your dog's cool? The other Sheltie folk are setting up a kitchen tent to groom in but I'm not sure if there'll be room for us to sit in so I may have to get a beach umbrella for shade. I was thinking of getting a space bag and filling it with ice and placing it under the pan in his crate but I don't know how long it'll last as he's entered in a show at 10:30, another following that and then one at 1 pm and all outside. I have Piper entered in obedience but that's inside however I won't have time to take Piper home until after the second show so he may have to be outside for some of the time as well (I don't want to leave him inside unattended). We are having an unusually hot summer here and the dogs are hating it (as am I...100 yesterday and you don't want to do anything when it's that hot!).
