I am happy to report that the twinges in my hind quarters have diminished and I am feeling quite bouncy. Nevertheless, I remain on restricted activity which is quite frustrating for an active chap such as yours truly.
Deprived of daycare, agility, freestyle, and, yes, tennis ball, short walks (supplemented with trips to the pool next door) are, for now, my only outlet.
So you can imagine my frustration as I watched the temperatures soar into triple digits.
Surely it was divine providence which timed the arrival of my Swamp Cooler jacket (which had been back ordered for ages).
After momma soaked it in the pool, I was ready to try it out.
What do you think? Of course everything goes with black, but I think I look exceptionally sporty.
There was a bit of a tussle getting it on and momma will have to adjust the chest strap, but overall, I give it four big paws up.
I want to remind my friends that even with a nice cooling jacket, it can get too hot for walkies and your humans should be mindful of the heat stored in the sidewalks which can burn tender feet. And never, never, NEVER let your humans leave you in the car, even for a moment when it is hot outside.
You can read all about the Swamp Cooler jacket here. Momma ordered mine from Amazon.
P.S. We did not order a jumbo jacket for the RH, but he has been getting hosed down before and after his amazingly short strolls.
