Bandit and i both prefer cold weather but we do a lot of trail walking (because its shady) and the beach is always a hit.

Once it gets over 85 and it's humid, Jackson pretty much melts into a puddle at the thought of doing much.

However, POOL. Thank doG for my dads inground pool at his house, it's a lifesaver. We try to get over there as much as possible, and even though it's a farther drive for me to get to work in the AM, we often sleep there during the week because it's so much easier with him (fenced in yard, other dogs for him to play with, etc) and swimming daily is such a great way to wear his butt out.

So basically anywhere that I know there is going to be somewhere for him to take a dip, he's happy. WATER is our favorite 'warm weather thing'.

His lifejacket is used extremely often in the summer. Water toys (ChuckIt stuff is his fav, bumper specifically). Going to the beach. Finding trails that are often near woods, etc, so it's shaded.

I do love that it stays lighter longer. It leaves many more options!

Walking through my favourite park. Only trouble is that it's rather prickly as there are a lot of wild roses. But there's a creek and tons of trees and it's kept completely natural except for the trails and is beautiful. Easy to keep cool with all the shade and the creek for swimming.

Sitting in the backyard, reading a book, and just hanging out. If it's really hot the dogs don't want to do anything anyway and are happy to just hang out with me.

Playing in the kiddie pool. But we need a new one. Hopefully I'll be able to find one this year (they've been hard to find the last couple years).

I do wish we had a dog beach/dog friendly lake around here. Taking Dance swimming in BC last year was awesome and something I wish I could do here, but we don't really have beaches (just man made and definitely not dog friendly).

I don't really know what else. I just enjoy being outside with the dogs in the summer doing whatever.

Yesterday we discovered a new way to keep Yarrow entertained in the heat....


On the ragged edge of the world
I'll roam
And the home of the wolf
Shall be my home

I pretty much spend it biking to water. I don't think I have many/any hot water things except for all my water toys, tennis balls, wubbas ect.

I also tend to be more on top of freezing chews in the summer because I love sitting outside with the dogs and they are way more happy when they are chomping on something.

Swimming! But it must be a larger body of water. My dogs don't do kiddie pools for some reason. Must be too similar to the bath tub. XP

Caleb loves playing in his kiddie pool and with the hose. Sometimes we take him swimming at the resevior, or the river along our favorite hiking trails. If it's not too hot, he & I also hike those trails.
