“Mum,” my daughter Princess 3 rushed to the door. “What’s the matter?’ I asked, but not really that concerned. “Sally’s lying on her back with legs up in the air and not moving.” Here we go again!” I muttered. I seemed to be doing a lot of brow raising and exhaling a few times lately. Only because, its school holiday and Princess3 got more time to spend with Sally. She’s panicking again. I think she’s really getting too attached to our dog. Every movement, every sound the dog makes, she’s out in a jiffy. So much so she decided that when she grow up, she’ll become a “Vet” and look after her. I will not ruin her dream, but I know it will be best to keep my mouth shut. “I said she’s fine and she’ll be happy in a minute.” What was that all about? She just want a treat! It’s weird, but I noticed that when she’s feeling too hot, she will lie on her back, raised her legs, and stilled her movement.
I used to hose her down and she will roll over and over again. As if to tell me she’s enjoying the sprinkling of water on her body. She must be boiling with all that darkened fur.
Unfortunately, when there’s a water restrictions, we cannot use the water until such time. What’s the alternative? Another trick and she got a block of ice. That will give her ample time to keep quiet and enjoy the cold treat. The best part, even Princess3 was quiet and simply enjoying the scene with her dog. Maybe I should give her a treat too! That will distract her the more. So what do you do with your dog on a hot day?
What’s the latest trick your dog have mastered? Wanna’ share it with us? Thanks for reading! Zienna♥
