Default Summer winding down - your dogs thoughts?

I think Jackson is over the summer.... he's not even as into the pool this past week, just more 'mehhh' about it and he's a FREAK over the pool. He's ready for fall, definitely. We get a lot more outdoor time when it's not hot and humid.

It's still 100+ here but they will love the show season and more hiking, we'll love the ability to sleep in before hiking, training, etc.

They seem to be more than ready for cooler weather. I know I am!

Meg will be bummed. She loves summer, and hates the cold. No more lounging on the grass in the sun. No more frog hunting.

Gusto doesn't care. He loves every season. Summer is a blast for hiking and swimming and swimming and hiking. He loves the snow just as much.

Sadie loves the cold, especially the snow, on the off chance we get some down here. She gets over heated fast when it's 95% and 85% humidity outside and shes black.

Murph and Mick love the cold weather (they hide in the air conditioning for most of the summer) while Riley is usually oblivious to temperature until he's done running like a crazy dog, then he definitely prefers cooler weather to lying around panting.

I'm ready for cooler weather so we can get back to scootering on the weekends. Got new tires on the scooter, so we're ready to go! Riley was all excited when I pulled the scooter out of the van, then got sad when I put it back in the barn.

Chulita and Jose`tell me they like summer a lot. They love lounging on the grass in the sun. They even search the house for a sunny spot on the floor somewhere. These Mexicans have it in their genes to love some summer heat. And here, there were only a very few days of excessive heat. Most of the time, it's very pleasant temps. In fact the extended forecast is for low to upper 70's. I'm not really ready for winter, even though winters here are pretty mild as are summers. They're just long, cloudy and drizzly a lot of the time. Fall is usually exceptionally nice here.

It's SoCal... I warned them this was it, forever. They seem ok with it, but I'll be happier when we can hike without burning off paw pads...
