You should get some fans and set up for them...also shower them in lukewarm...a bit cold water for a tastier ice treat, you can freeze chicken soup or apple juice or you can buy Freezy treats. We have those, and they are very cute

Haha, she may have been talking about celcius - if it is summer for her now she may be in Australia or NZ.

Wish we had a summer, a few lovely days at most. Have to go walkies dressed like an eskimo most of the time.

40 Celsius = 104 Fahrenheit!!! That is extremely hot. I would not call that lovely, lol. Maybe try freezing kongs filled with wet food. I used to do that for Gemma with canned Ziwipeak to keep her busy during the Summer.

Hehe. The entire rest of the world is on Celsius.

OP, that reminds me of the temps in Florida (100+ degrees F). We used give ice cubes as treats. Limit walks, make them short and frequent. And lots of fresh cold water! Good luck.
