|ALL bulldogs need to be VERY VERY carefully watched in the summer!!!!
My Audrey just this past weekend got overheated from playing ball on an exceptionally warm day with the neighbors kids. It happened VERY fast.
Like in 10 minutes.
I had to bring her in and run cool water over her in the tub, it took almost 20 minutes to get her tongue uncurled and her panting slowed down.
Do not EVER relax with your bully in the heat!
On the bulldog boards there are stories every single year of bullies dropping dead from the heat. One dog last year in Florida went for the same 10 minute walk everyday for years. The owner stopped one day to talk to a neighbor, and the dog dropped dead on the sidewalk, that extra few minutes, (and he was only standing! not moving,) was too much.
