Kumfy Walks

UntitledHappy Thorsday!  Dadaw found a new cooling harness for Sissy that allows us to do some walking in this beastly heat and humidity.   The Kumfy Tailz harness has a big ol’ gel thing Mama keeps in the freezer, and it slips into the tummy part of the harness to keep Sissy from overheating on our walks.

They advertise that it will keep a dog cool up to an hour, but we’ve found that 45 minutes is pushing it for Sis.  The neato gel thing can also be tossed in the microwave to keep a dog warm in the winter.  I’ve already placed my order for a Gretchen Greer model!  I don’t get too hot, but I am very vulnerable to cold.

When we get home, Mama feeds us ice chips, and if Sis is at all stressed, she gets wiped down with some weird, special towel.   It gets cold when it’s wet.  I don’t mind having my feet and chest wiped down with it, but Sis likes to walk around the house with it draped across her back like saddle.  

How do you stay cool?

    We like to sleep on the cool tile in the summer and in the winter Mom puts our blankets in the dryer jest before bedtime so they’re nice and warm. We mostly love to jump in the water in summer heat.
