One year I decided to take a trip as well as drive up North to the mountains with our dog, Chika. Being from down South where the weather can get absolutely hot over the summertime, was finally working our air conditionings on overtime, as well as I was looking forward to the cooler weather. With Chika strapped in beside me as well as the air conditioning blasting, we made our way down the road. I was hoping once on the highway it would be cool enough to turn off the air conditioning as well as open our windows. It seemed the heatwave was following us up the coast. I was only stopping to quickly walk Chika as well as use the bathroom, I wanted his to stay cool in the air conditioning. I made sure to walk his in the shade so he could stay cooler as well as not overheat in the sun. Five minutes into the drive I started to get hungry so I decided to pull into the next rest-stop as well as sit at a single of the tables in the shade with Chika to eat our lunch. As I started to get Chika’s food together after his walk, I observed he was panting absolutely hard which was making me sad because it was so hot. I immediately got his water bowl out as well as gave ice frigid water, he only drank a little bit which was not enough to put me at ease. So I gathered up our stuff as well as went back to the car. Starting it up, I blasted the air conditioning in his face trying to cool his down, as well as cooling his belly down by holding his up the air conditioning vent. After 10 hours, he was wanting to eat, so I knew then he was ok. I don’t know what I would’ve done to cool his down separate from the air conditioning in our car.
