Marquise (a.k.a. Kiki) is a big girl, but she definitely can’t stand the heat. A short walk at the park in dry 80° weather had her panting something fierce. Some parks near my house have dog-level water fountains, but unfortunately this one doesn’t, so we didn’t stay long. She enjoyed it, though, what with all the squirrels and bees and wooded areas and whatnot, and is now all pooped out on the floor.

If she stuck her tongue out just a little bit more I’m sure she’d have enough wing surface to fly away.
