In my defense, it has been much cooler lately.
Today I've been working at the computer. The house is closed up as it keeps it cooler (and it was cold early). I did take the dogs out numerous times this morning for brief romps on breaks, but really didn't notice that it was hot.
At 2, I decide. Hike time. Put two in the car and head on out. As I'm driving I'm thinking, "It seems a little warm." Half way there I press a button on my dash and the temp pops up at 90.
Ah well. We are almost to the trail head and much of it is in the shade.
Today I learned that when Olive is hot, she takes a break. We aren't moving till I cool down, kinda break. I'll give her this, it was hot. Water is good, but water on her belly is fantastic! Water falling on the ground in the shade making mud...priceless!
Tomorrow, we'll either go later or earlier. Heat of the day, not Olives choice.
I was hot and Fin was hot. Burned some calories and had fun. Fortunately I always bring water and we took frequent water breaks.
ME: Olive, it isn't time for a nap right now. Come on girl, we've only got about a 1/4 of a mile to go and it is ALL in shade.
ME: Look, Fin and I are going. Are you coming?
OLIVE: Huh. You wouldn't leave me. I remember how panicked you are when I go over the fence.
ME: Well, it is hot, Fin and I are going.
OLIVE: Well ok...squirrel!
