The first week home started with lots of rain, but then a few days later the sun came out to stay.

I was aware of making sure Dakota had lots of places in the shade outside and that it was easy to get inside too.  Lots of water bowls dotted around.

I also froze some slices of carrot which she loved.  Added to that some ice cubes were great fun, after the initial ‘not sure’ moment.  She has loved being in the garden and having a big umbrella up has meant lots of chances for naps in the shade (her, not me sadly!)

I purchased a doggy paddling pool for her too which she has been in and also thinks is a super big water bowl.


The terrifying world of ice cubes!
