It is hot !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Friday has arrived and we are going through a heatwave here, it is hot. I have read that there are heatwaves everywhere and it is so important to keep your dogs inside in the cool house.

I for the life of me cannot understand people that leave their dogs outside with no shade or even worse leave them in hot cars. If I saw a dog in a hot car I would automatically smash the window to save it. I do not care if the a/c is on, it is hot as hell in there.  Those that do it should be jailed or if Karma would work put the humans in the cars for a bit to see what it is like. I actually read an article where a judge ordered a woman to sit in her hot car and boil for a bit after leaving her dog in the car. Love that idea, do you?

I took Layla on an errand today and this is how we went.

We had a wonderful weekend last week and as San Francisco is finally open it is great to get outdoors without a mask and breathe the air. I am still using my mask on public transport and shops but that feeling of freedom is in the air.

Last Saturday I went with a friend and Layla of course to Pride Movie in Oracle Park, it is the park where the Giants play. The Dykes on bikes were there, some drag queens and an amazing movie. It was so great to be outdoors watching a movie. The seating was done very cleverly so there was social distancing and very safe plus those that were vaccinated sat separately from those that are not.

I learned something that night about taking a senior with you and that is Layla was happy in her back pack which expands but the relaxing supplement I gave her did not help much plus she got cold so in the future I will put a t-shirt on her which keeps her calm and give her some CBD oil instead. I put my jacket on her to keep her calm and warm which helped a bit.

We got home really late that night which I am not used to so on Sunday we just slept, walked and ate, what a hard life LOL.

 

I am not sure what our plans are this weekend but will check out to see what Pride events there are and maybe take her to one.

 

Stay cool everyone and have a wonderful weekend

With a woof and love from Layla

 

 

 

 

 

National Pet Preparedness Month

Friday has arrived phew and it has been a busy week in the Layla Neighborhood. Mom says she is tired but I do not care cos the weather is nice and I want to go for walks so guess what! I am making Mom walk me like 5 times a day BOL. It is good for her.

Yesterday we had a doxie named Shoyu stay with us, I was not happy sharing Mom with another dog but as Mom said I am still number one. Actually I cannot complain as Shoyu was really good and relaxed which was awesome.

June 15th San Francisco is finally opening, no masks either unless you have not been vaccinated which I am really excited about especially as that means more adventures in the future and I know Mom is planning them as she has been talking to Aunt Alice about some. Cannot wait to see what is planned.

On Sunday Mom took me to the Chihuahua meet up in Stern Grove. We love that park as it is so big, with lots of trees and the lake but because there were so many Coyote warnings we stuck to where all the people were, Mom explained to me to be rather safe than sorry.

 

We used my new back pack to get there, this one is so so pawsome and you know why! It is because it is expandable so when on the ground Mom can open it up and it turns into a dog bed where I could sleep when the Chihuahuas were yapping too much. It is so comfortable to sit in, get in plus I can watch the world go by from the top. Mom does not have to clip me in as I do not jump out but it has one for those that need it.

 

It is so airy, with mesh on all sides so I do not get hot, to get in is easy as it opens at the side and in a nutshell the best of the best for Mom to carry me in, as she says it is light so it is not hard on her back or shoulders. It has a strap to go around Moms belly also.

You can read more about them on the link below:

I received this back pack to review from the company.

 

Now before I forgot June is National Pet Preparedness Month, are you prepared?

 

This is very important as with what is happening in the world today, earthquakes, hurricanes, fires, tornadoes, floods and so much more we need to be prepared.

I have an emergency bag in my closet with food for me and Layla, boxes of water, a sleeping bag, flashlights and batteries, a radio, first aid kits for both of us, toys for Layla, medications, emergency phone numbers, poop bags plus so much more.

The plus with this new back pack also is I can put Layla in it, get out of the house to a safe place and then open it up so she can lie down safely without me taking her out of it, which will make life so much easier and I will be more relaxed.

What is in your emergency bag?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone and please be safe

June has arrived which means Rainbows

First week of June and Pride Month has started. The city is covered with rainbows and of course Layla has her rainbow harness on also, Happy Pride everyone.

There has also been some good news, Layla has been taken off her liver supplements, all I can say is what a relief. This poor little girl is traumatized from them. It has got to the point where we go for walks and she comes home and hides in her box from fear, I now am working on her confidence again to show her that the nightmare is over. The size of the pills are so big I would choke on one LOL so trying to get her to take them is impossible. I spoke to the vet about this and asked him actually if there was another kind of small pill she could take after trying to give them to her with hotdogs, cheese, cream cheese, ground turkey, pill pockets, chicken, you name it we tried. He told me that because she had been on them for nearly 6 months I could stop.

So I am doing a happy dance here.

Memorial weekend I decided to take her for an adventure and get out of the house for a couple of hours. She loves riding the trams and busses so took the tram to an adoption event of Rocket Dog Rescue that was being held outdoors so she could see some other people and a different area. It was hot but really fun to do it and we were both exhausted when we got home. She was a happy girl.

The rest of the weekend we just relaxed, cuddled and spent quality Mom/Layla time which she of course loved. I made her her favorite turkey treats which she is loving.

This weekend our plans are to go for a walk on the Embarkadero which is the promenade next to the sea, go to her Uncle on Saturday to relax in his garden (I need it) and on Sunday we are going to a Chihuahua meet up which is finally happening in one of our favorite parks – Stern Grove, so we are going to be happy busy having fun weekend plus she will be seeing other dogs and me some humans, what a concept LOL.

What are your plans this weekend ? Please share with us, we would love to hear from you.

Have a safe wonderful weekend,

With woof and love from Layla
