There is nothing, I mean NOTHING, as determined and annoying as a bored poodle. Zeus loves to walk, play, chase the water spray of the hose, and is usually a good boy those days he gets to participate in at least two of these activities. However, he is a "black poodle", which means he overheats really quickly. As such, summer is a trying time... we either have to do the outdoor fun stuff very early in the morning or late at night. The last near week has not even allowed that... when it is over 90F at 6am, and 106F by mid-afternoon, there is no "cool" time to be outside.
The poor poodle is BORED... and aching to let loose and burn off energy. I hope the heat wave breaks before our sanity does!
