Living in Andalucia as we do, during the summer you have to change your lifestyle around a little to cope with the couple of months when its real hot. We have very early walks, my Hu'mum does not like this so I become her alarm clock, between 5.45am and 6.15am I wander in and wake her.
Laying down to eat food helps save energy
But what to do when you get back from the walk and after a swim. Most years I have dug a number of shallow holes around the garden, this year I went for a couple but 1 in particular I liked so much I kept working on it.
You see the Hu'parents built the wood a shelter to protect the wood from the worst of the weather during the winter and I have turned this into my best hole. I have to share it with some left over wood but its good for chewing on. Its a great place to hang out, so if im not inside the house im in the wood shelter den.
Finding somewhere cool to lay inside the house
Below are some pictures for you to see how to excavate one for yourself.
Choose your area carefully, make sure you will be comfy and happy
This is one I was not happy with, the cat kept wanting to join me
Let the work begin
Try it out again for size
Excavate some more until you are 100% happy with it
Yep seems ok
Try a different position
Have a chew on a stick
Have a little rest
Nip in for a little icecream
Excavate some more to make sure you reach the really cool earth
Take another nap to ensure all is good this time
You too can reach this kind of happiness
The Thundering Herd: Excellent demonstration of the skills. Our dog yard sort of looks like the surface of the moon,
