3.5 mile conditioning trot in 97°f, Hot AF 🥵. Before this Xena hit a 2.4 mile trot with me on the bicycle in 87°f. When we set off for a run today I had no idea it was so hot. I would have probably waited another hour but im glad I didn't. I love putting these dogs to a real test and their performance was outstanding. Cooling down is a very important step. The cool down should begin immediately after intense exercise. No standing or sitting around without any windage for a prolonged period of time that is when the dogs temperature quickly rises.
Y’all. There are some freaking awesome dogs sitting in shelters everywhere. Some people out there hold the opinion that shelter dogs are “products of other peoples’ problems”, which is a crying shame. Because by holding that opinion, they are barring themselves from finding a dog like Ramona; who is awesome. And if adopting directly from the shelter feels a little too overwhelming, look at rescues! Foster homes get to know the animals in their care within a home-setting, and can help you find your perfect match. And by choosing to adopt, you not only get to add a new member to your family, but you also save the life of another animal that then takes the place of the adopted. Shelter pets everywhere say thank you for choosing to adopt! 🐾💜 #adoptramona@rescueofhope
