Senior dogs’ sunbaths
All of our dogs were sunbathers, even my keeshonds! Keeshonds that have a double coat to keep them warm in snow and ice. Dawn and Nabisco loved to go outside and lay in the sun. How odd that they loved a short naps and feeling overheated. Their two-layered coats grown for chilly Dutch barges and cool winters did not stop them from stretching out in a patch of sunshine until they were panting hot.
This senior dog, Babe, lowered her ears to let the rays warm another section of her forehead.
I believe Babe’s pet parents adopted her. She has become the neighborhood favorite, naturally mellow and happy to hang with guys or gals. She even tolerates little barky dogs like our Sydney (Please, don’t tell Syd that! He thinks of himself as a king, and believes he is the all time favorite of everyone in the world).
