just wondering how your beagle stays cool in the hot weather.the a/c in our house is broken until tommorrow and sure can tell homer is feeling it.he does not like laying on anything but his pillows or a piece of carpet(he even has carpet samples to lay outside on)-for the past couple of days he just lays around on the wood floors or the concrete in the carport.poor guy is too hot to even play outside or with any toys inside.i soaked him with the house tonight which he hates but he needed a rinsing anyways and put his carpet in front of a fan so he was nice and cool but he still whined and rolled around like i beat him or something just cuz there was some water on him...lol.he won't touch his water unless i put ice in it now which i do all day long since he walks around with his mouth hanging open...lol.i feel so bad for him.lucky for him he is a really good dog and doesn't get into stuff he's not supposed to except for the occasional tissue in the garbage so he gets to sleep in our comp room where his crate is but with the doors open and a baby gate so he can sleep on the floor if he wants or his crate.he has proved to us he can be trusted loose for a night-we just forgot to close his door to his crate a few times
and we wake up and he is sleeping in his crate and nothing has been messed with-he is such a good boy!

My two really slow down quick when it's hot outside. Fortunately our AC has been good to us so far, that and we have a basement that stays incredibly cool. While the dogs don't spend a lot of time down there, it does mean that the floors on the first level are nice and cold. The fur-darlings will stretch out on the kitchen floor to cool off. We keep them well watered (if we don't, the toilets will be pillaged) so they don't get dehydrated. I am confident that a dog that has shade and enough to drink can't go into hyperthermia, but then again I'm not a vet...
