We’ve finally turned on the air conditioning this week. Hurray! And Hamish’s dogs have been lazing outside at work. Bliss. Even though it’s not blazing hot (yet!) do be mindful that cars and closed conservatories can become ovens very quickly. If you think your dog may have heat stroke, wring cool water over them repeatedly – but don’t immerse or wrap in damp towels. Pick up a free postcard from reception for advice on this and other emergencies.
