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!

stupid a/c guy never showed up today.said he would be by in the evening.called and left a message and hopefully he will show up tommorrow as we are all miserable here-got to 91 in the house today and it will reach 101 this weekend.i've got every window open with a box fan pulling in the cool air and all ceiling fans on but dang it's still too hot!i worry about homer overheating-he is so lethargic,all he wants to do is lay around but i can't blame him-that's all we do.he is drinking his ice water like crazy thank goodness but can't think of anything else to help cool him off except using the hose on him and that's doesn't fly too well with him-i don't think he cares if he is hot,he'd rather be hot than wet silly dog.i'm so proud of him-last night he slept out of the crate and didn't mess with anything.woke up and found him laying in the middle of the room under the ceiling fan where the window fans blows the cool air in.
i just know when the a/c gets fixed he is gonna be running all over the house wanting to play like crazy-he's got alot of time to make up for!
