The reason for this is simply because they were over heating and panting.
Molly in particular finds summer quite hard as she's a black dog, there has been countless times she's just too hot to run and I find her lay down, panting under a bush somewhere in the shade - I've also spotted her in a dried up lake lying in the last remaining puddles. I hate seeing her like that and any ideas to cool her down are always worth giving a go.
This year though, after reading 'your dog' magazine I've found the perfect doggie ice cream!
I tried it out and it literally takes less than 5 minutes to make then pop it in the freezer for 24 hours and the next summer day you have suitable and tasty dog ice cream!
|You need a pot for it to mix & freeze in, some runny honey, some low fat vanilla yogurt & a banana (I used two as I have two mouths to feed)|
|mash the banana up in to tiny little pieces!|
|Add the vanilla yogurt. I guessed how much to put in by just pouring till I was happy with the amount.|
|Pour the honey in. I used a lot more than the tiny splodge shown in the picture though!|
I have to confess that I also had a tiny taste, it's bloody gorgeous too! Completely recommend for us humans to snack on too.
