A timely message (and a langorous poem).
Moving in slow motion,
Reluctant effort spawning sleep
Through open windows
Only the flies are happy,
Making friends with flesh
Cloistered madness yawns,
Stretching fur-clad limbs
This is the time
For tennis balls
And Hot Dogs…
It is officially summer in the northern hemisphere. In England, the weather forecasters are predicting a heatwave. Every year many dogs die from heatstroke. They cannot regulate their body temperature in the same way a human can. Even just a ‘warm’ day can prove fatal… a parked car with an interior temperature of 22° C (71.6° F) may rise to 47° C ( 116.6° F) within an hour. Even with ventilation, dogs suffer and die.
It isn’t just dogs at risk. Protect your pets.
