After I'd finished writing about keep the fur-kids cool yesterday, I went out to see if I could do something about our poor garden in the heat. After our 15 year drought finally broke in 2010, Melbourne has retained some level of water restrictions, (but fortunately, we no longer have recommended time limits for showers!) so we can only water in the early morning or evenings. The huskies, especially Ishka, thought this was a brilliant idea.
Ishka: No, its my water toy, Bolo, back off!
Of course, after being hot and sleepy most of the day, once they'd cooled off in the sprinker, there was a lot more energy for playing!
