Throwing Shade

Throwing shade has a negative connotation in social media, but this is what it means to Macy Blue and me.


Macy's hellbow causes her to limp. Her desire to lead the pack while simultaneously exploring off trail causes her to over heat. She is prone to "sand naps." While we were in Louisiana, she could barely walk three blocks without a shade nap.  I often shield her from the sun...throw shade on her...to help her cool off so we can catch up with our pack.

We totally understand all that heating up - it is so hot and humid here now. We could use a gigantic shadow to cool us down.

Shade is especially important to dark colored dogs. You are a wonderful mom to Macy!

We're sorry to hear about Macy's hellbow. She is lucky to have a great mom to give her some cooling shade when she needs it.

Maybe pour water on her head. This works well enough if a dog likes water.

P.S. I used to give my dogs shade naps. Their cooling system isn't as good as ours.
