HOT

The boys really wanted to go for a mid afternoon walk. They didn't seem to care that it is like an oven out. So off we went. Very little shade to be found. Yuck.

When we got back both boys were huffing and puffing so I decided to cut up some watermelon and let them try it. Various people have posted pictures of their corgis mowing down on watermelon and obviously loving it. I know my guys love cantaloupe - why not watermelon?

The boys seemed to think it was an odd shaped
Popsicle before they figured out they could bite it.

It was very much a success and now they wish I would give them
M-O-R-E!

How cute. Great way to get some fluids in them! I'll have to see if my dogs will eat it.

Ummm, who doesnt like watermelon on a hot day? I am going to have to try my dogs on it, they love cantelope so bet they might like the watermelon. You are such a good doggie mom to go out for a walk on a hot afternoon!!!!

My corgi, Whiskey, had her first taste of watermelon on 4th of July, and she loves it! I also took some and made little cubes to freeze for quick cool treats. With the heat Im trying to think of any foods that can be frozen so they cool her down faster.

Mine won't eat melon, but I can eat a 22-pounder a day all by myself (I buy them two at a time), so it's really not a problem.

I too have a schnauzer, and I too have a herd dog, although mine is a blue heeler. She's nearly 13 now, and completely blind.
