We made it past the first heat wave of 2022! We have been fortunate this year as we prepared with fans and purifiers for when the fires come, but also because our place is really shaded and has A/C which we had to use mostly in the afternoon and at night. We also lived in Arizona for many years and are totally used to heat in general, it is just the humidity that is a pain to deal with. We took early morning walk and late-night walks with the pup. We felt bad having to keep her in most of the day, but we didn’t want to worry about her paws getting burned or a heat stroke. I am glad the heat is behind us for now, but I am ever concerned about the fires as there have already been a few smokey days here.
