I've seen this posted on several sites, so I thought I would share with you. I don't know who wrote it, but if I find out, I will put the writer's name.
"Please share this post, it explains why hot days can be fatal to dogs!When you read or hear about the bulldog-type, short-nosed (brachycephalic) breeds having more trouble with the heat, you may wonder why. On a good day, with moderate temperatures, they have a much more difficult time moving air to their lungs because of their anatomy.
This picture shows the back of the mouth of a long-nosed dog on the left (a collie-retriever cross) and a short-nosed dog on the right (a pug). You can see that this area is compressed and limited in the pug. Pugs, Bulldogs (all types), Bostons, Boxers, Shih Tzus, Lhasa Apsos, Pekingese, etc. all have this anatomy. The space is even more limited when they are overweight or obese.
When it is hot, dogs can only cool themselves by panting. Excessive panting leads to swelling in the back of the mouth and throat. This swelling makes it even more difficult for the brachycephalic breeds to breath and they can suffocate.
In fact, any dog can succumb to heat stroke or compromised breathing so PLEASE DO NOT exercise or leave dogs outside in the sun or in cars when it is hot. They trust us to make good choices and take care of them!"
Beaches and lakes can be so much fun. But, keep your dogs safe. They depend on you. ❤️

Applesauce was in my home about a month-- not long at all!! He was about as perfect a foster as you can have. Housetrained, sweet, not aggressive, loves toys, eats well. And he went through all his surgery and medical care like a champ. I just love this boy. 💙
