I am sure he will look handsome, I am such a baby, I thought I was going to cry when I dropped him off. But they were very nice.

I have been thinking maybe I should learn how to groom, I would probably love that way more than sitting here typing all day long....
i was reading about bogoloves cute doggies day at groomin, and he said he was givin him a groom to keep him cool, i thought he meant so he wouldnt be hot but i guess he meant something else...sry i still stand by the fan idea though

I got Brady a pool and I just got his hair clipped shorter too. Sometimes I throw some ice cubes in his water bowl with his water too. My neighbor Liz is home all this week too, before she starts hre new job on Monday, and she had him at her house all day today with Jenny. She said he was lying on her wood floor in her house most of the day after they played in Jenny's pool.

Magic has an eight hundred acre pool in the front yard and won't go near it. I like the idea of a fan on her tho, I'll give that a try.

This is a picture of what I see from my front yard

Pupsicles!

Ours hit their wading pool or go down into the woods and play in the creek.

MIne stay outside in California heat, but tehy have the garage all to themselves. They cool off on the cement slab, I guess. they have plenty of H2O and sometimes get ice cubes...other than that, I just let them be.

I change my dog's water A LOT during the day to make sure it is cold and fresh. Also I put a fan in front of their kennels (where they stay during most of the day). They don't feel like being too active now that it is like 100 degrees here. We have an air conditioning (a window unit) but hubby is dragging his feet putting it in. Mack is a complete baby when it comes to water, so is Shelby, but Hannah LOVES it. Mostly they just lay in their cages in front of the fan. They get their exercise in the evening when the sun sets they run around and play and don't get as hot.

I would think your Ridgeback would be well suited to the southern California climate. One of the reasons we chose the Filas over, say, a Tibetan, is because the summers here are hot and muggy.
