There are smart dogs and there are not so smart dogs. My little black Pomeranian, Spooky, is street smart or in this case country road smart. My four pups and I usually set out by 6:30 for our morning walk to beat the heat. On Monday we missed our early morning window of time, but were able to set out around 11:30. Big difference. Before we even got to one mile, Spooky, the independent one of the group, plopped down with a loud squeal on the side of the road and stayed there until I picked her up and carried her home. I was glad for the early warning because all five of us might have had a heat stroke if not for Stoopy, I mean Spooky!………Hello 100 degrees……Welcome to Texas.
