the dogs are irritable. kathy stopped a fight before it started with cole and jazz. jazz was in a really pissy mood this morning. lynn was badly bitten on the leg today when blind jazz was aiming for ben. ben is now with the other dogs and jazz is on her own in ben's room where it is a bit cooler...she is no longer pissy, she is virtually comatose with the heat. i have the fan directly on her, and she wakes up when i touch her but tomorrow is going to be even hotter and i am really worried about all of them. wilbur is gasping with the heat, michael is panting non stop and they are both in the coolest part of the house. i bought another commercial fan and some white tarps today for the dog room and tomorrow greg will hang the tarps outside the windows and cover the sky lights. i shifted the other fans around and will ask greg to install the air conditioner somewhere tomorrow too....i think maybe in the kitchen and then we can rotate the dogs thru there as they need cooling down.
i have some pretty grave concerns tho about jazz...i love that blind, deaf, stubborn, pee tank but it becomes a huge safety risk for not only humans but for the other dogs if she is going to start biting cuz she is too hot and in a bad mood, esp since she can't see exactly who she is biting. jazz has no clue how to inhibit her bite, she just chomps down for all she is worth. i am worried.
