Lola (8yo husky shepherd mix) in the foreground is my brothers dog that I am taking care of while he lives with the mother-in-law and builds his business
Thor (14yo mutantly large husky) in the back is my dog since '10
I had another Husky, Lada, until this summer when she died at the ancient age of 15
her health took a quick downturn over a week
so I decided to take her on one last "camping" trip, drove up to a campsite rather than hiked in like we usually do, then put her down if she survived the weekend
she died the first night next to me>>1106720>How do they fare in hot weather?
not too horribly
but they need a lot of care when theh temps are above ~80F>wading/soaking pool>brush out their undercoat as soon as they start shedding>5+ gallons of drinking water each day>plentiful grassy shade>and if temps get too high they need to come into a cooled building
