It's getting hot in Phoenix! Our temps are reaching the low 90's this week!
And our patio is a heat trap since it faces West so it can really get hot!! These are the indoor and outdoor temperatures at 6:37 PM on April 21. The outdoor temp is the shade temperature!
So out have come the canine cool coats, the visors and the shades for our walks! The shades are a new acquisition since Tyro's visor isn't long enough to cover his eyes. The sun is very bright and the UV rays are strong here. I bought one pair of doggie shades at the Phoenix Pet Expo to see how they would work. They are supposed to protect against UV rays. I think Tyro needs a larger pair of shades judging from how they are sitting on his face. I'm wondering if I can make them up myself now that I have a pair to see how they are constructed. Good ol' Velcro, of course!
Anyway, our Vizslas are the best outfitted dogs in town!!! And of course, people think I am weird 'dressing' my dogs up in the heat. No one here seems to know about canine cool coats! But my dogs are a constant source of comments, smiles and attractions and people stop and ask me, "where are their hats?" if they don't have them on.
