I was informed late last night that heat stroke has claimed another of our beloved retrievers.
The dog, a fox red male, about 2.5 to 3 y/o and in shape, had been trained all summer and was somewhat acclimated to the heat.
The dog was dove hunting and had made 4 retrieves, and went down about 3-3:30. Dog was taken to a pond for cooling and failed to respond. Temps were in mid to high 80's.
Please keep this owner in your prayers today. Watch your own dogs very carefully.
