Too Darn Hot!

So, the other day, Mom and I went for a nice long walk at a local park. But it was super hot and humid, and my legs just aren't as long as Mom's. So, when she wanted to do another loop around this big park, I had to put my paw down. I found the closest shade under a tree, and just laid down.


What?

Mom pulled on my leash, but I wasn't going anywhere. Unless she wanted to carry me. Which I knew she wouldn't want to do, because of the hot, sticky weather.
<--- Sticking my tongue out at Mom for trying to get me to keep on going.
After a few minutes of resting in the shade, Mom said we could go home. And I got up and gladly walked back to the car.
This has only happened once before. I usually have plenty of stamina. Mom says it's because of the sudden humidity that my body wasn't used to yet.
Give it a few more weeks, and I'll be wanting to walk longer than Mom can!

You are absolutely right. Take everything in moderation. Plus the Shar Pei in you is not made for heat and has to be careful about it.

When Meja gets tired on walks she sits down and won't move. But that's cause she's a great big gigantical baby pants.

But Lola is right, we Shar Pei aren't made fer hot. Something about our beautiful squishy in faces.
