My 4 month old Chihuahua, Otis, Loves to lay in the sun. I have heard this is normal for this breed, but it worries me because he could get sun storke or something couldn't he? Today it's the hottest day of the year here and he is laying in the sun! If any other Chi owners have any insight that would be great!

Thanks Otis and Amy

I also love to sunbath . I have a tan on my belly right now, but my mom makes sure she limits the time I'm allowed to do so especially on really hot days . dogs are pretty smart as long as they can get shelter if they get to hot they wont overheat themselves ps I'm part chi

I love to sunbathe too but mummy doesn't let me out for more than a few minutes on the deck. Dogs don't know when they are getting overheated so please don't let him outside for long. He is only young and small and will get heatstroke very easily. Cold water should be available at all times for him too but don't leave him outside. No dog should be left outside in this heat.

My friend has a chi who loved to lay in the sun (even though his sister was smart enough to go sit in the shade). He ended up in the hospital with IVs because he got heat stroke or something like that.

roxi is a crazy cairn and loves to lay in the sun, stand in the sun, anything in the sun. mommy yells at her all the time. but in this heat she hasn't been outside at all. you're right dogs that like the sun have no idea when they get sunstroke. i on the other hand look for shade. i'm the smart one!!!

BOL Zoe! I’m not smart like you, I’m sun crazy like Roxi! I will lay in the sun and pant my brains out until my tongue turns bright pink, almost red!!! The first time mama caught me doing that she knew she had to keep an eye on me! When we had a fireplace I would even lay in front of that until I started panting!!!!
