Kelly doesn’t do well in the heat. Sometimes she pants so heavily, it’s like listening to an obscene phone caller (do they exist anymore in this text-message world? I’m sure they do, just in a different way.) She also tries to crawl under furniture to escape the heat. Can it be that much cooler under my bed, where I’ve stuffed low plastic containers of bedding, rolls of toilet paper that don’t fit in the linen closet, and I’m sure socks and slippers that have somehow disappeared? I’m considering having her shaved down for the summer. I love her long, flowing fur, but not if it makes her uncomfortable. What do you think, should I have her shaved? And what are your tips for keeping your pet cool in the summer?
