    This is what I call Jasper's saluki look - turning his head away and totally blanking me. It can happen when it's raining but now it's a case of 'No Mum, I don't want to go to the woods again! I'm fed up of the woods, I wanna go to the heath, or the golf course, or the park, anywhere but the woods!'

    Of course, at the moment it's too hot to go anywhere else so if all else fails, I tell him I'm going to shut him in the car and go on my own. It always works, because he hasn't yet twigged I wouldn't ever do that ;)

    I'm bored with the river walk - only place with shade and a couple of places where he can wallow to cool off that I can go without getting the car out. It's overcast here but still 29 degrees.

    We've had to use the car for all walks - the woods are only about a mile away and up a trailway, but I don't want him getting overheated halfway home.

    We are lucky where I live as there are 3( 4 with a short walk, )different woods around us all within a 10 min drive of all my dogs, so have a slight variety for them.. and everytime I find myself even thinking about moaning I remind myself how long, so long, our wet, muddy winter was!! Saying that it has gone quite dark outside at the mo, we might get rain, hoo-bloody-ray!!!!!!!!!!! Shhhhhhhhh...;)

    It is too hot! We've started taking Jimmy in the car to his usual evening walk, walk him about, then drive home. It sounds lazy, but the 10 minute walk there in the sun is unbearable for us and we're not wearing fur coats!

    I was out on my bike on Sunday, had heat stroke symptoms, had to stop and lie down under some trees for an hour and buy some bottled water from a pub opposite :eek: Riding home down the motorway, with my jacket open (the risk of heat exhaustion outweighed the risk of crash protection at this point), it was 33 degrees. It was like having a hair dryer pointed at my chest. Just too damned hot!
