Hello again everyone.

I need some advise on what to do during extreme heat spells. It was
104 F today, and the news said this is going to continue until at
least Friday. I've never experienced this kind of heat in MY life,
let alone know what to do to help my little girl. I don't have
access to an air conditioner, I've got 3 really big fans going at all
times (one practically right on her when she's sleeping), but don't
know what else I can do. If nothing else, I'll check into boarding
her at the vets where it's at least air conditioned (as much as I'll
hate being separated). I'm terrified of something happening to her
because of the heat. So, any and all tricks, tips, etc. would be
GREATLY appreciated by us both.

Thanks again.
