Owen Says He's Very Excited About the Possibility of Moving Someplace Cooler


I've never actually seen his tongue hang out that far -- I only seem to capture it in pictures when I'm looking at the little screen. Poor baby is HOT.

Yowza, that's long! What's the canine Canadian immigration protocol? Will there be a quarantine involved?

My strange dogs have abnormally long tongues. They're constantly licking their own noses. So that looks normal to me. Yeesh. Poor Owen!

Rachel, I'm not sure of the specifics, but I know you have to prove they've had their vaccinations, etc. Our vet is the most popular in the area and works with a lot of Canadians and Americans, and so is familiar with the process and how the paperwork needs to be. I know of one woman who's cat was put in quarantine, but it was a stray to begin with and that may have been part of the reason.

Robin, I nearly pissed my pants when I saw the photo because he never looks like that! But yes, poor Owen.

Awwww! My cats thought it was hot this summer, because it was their first summer without air conditioning. (I always kept it cool for the sake of the piano.) So in midday when it was a whole 80 degrees, one tucked itself by the water tank, and the other three flattened themselves in the shade on the floor, as if it were 120 degrees out.

Poor Owen is going to be COLD!

What a cute pink tongue!!! I can't wait to see his reaction to snow!!

Melanie Avila said...

Natasha, I think any change like that is probably hard for animals because they don't understand why it's happening. That's cute the extremes they went to to cool off!


Nadine, you and me both! Heck, I'm excited to see him in GRASS.

Owen is so cute!

If he gets too cold, he can wear a little pink sweater LOL.
