Warm Weather Stress

Well, our weekend was both relaxing and stressful.  How is this possible?  Our air conditioner is currently broken and this weekend was particularly warm.  There was nothing we could do except lie still and keep the fans on full speed.  By the end of the weekend we were so hot we couldn't stand it any more and abandoned the house to seek shelter at my parents' house.  Luna, Mike and I were so happy to be in a cooler environment.

To beat the heat today, I took Luna to work with me so she could sit in a slightly air conditioned office.  My office mate, Kathy, occasionally brings her Siberian husky, Libby, to work.  Libby is a sled dog and show dog who is very well behaved.  Libby and Luna have met a few times before, but our schedules are always off so the dogs have never shared the office together.  We had a few territorial moments, but overall the dogs were fine.  Mostly the issues came from Libby feeling greedy about her cookies and Luna ignoring Libby's body language.  (Spoiled?)  After a short time, both dogs understood they had to lie next to our desks and stay there quietly.  To give Libby a break from the crowded office, Luna sat in two meetings with me and was very well behaved.  

Good dogs just hanging by their people.
Libby is happy to be inside.
Hopefully, our air conditioner will be fixed by the end of the week.  (Fingers crossed.)  Until then, it really is unsafe for Luna to stay at our house so she will have to either come to the office with me or stay at my parents' house.

This is so nice. I'm glad you have the option to bring Luna in to work when you need too.

Glad you are able to take Luna to work.

Too hot for no A/C. We just had the A/C guy out to check out our system, so hopefully it will not die anytime soon.
