lol!

I spray my piggies with a water bottle, it's a bit more gentle on them and they love it ;D

Sometimes i also get an ice pack and wrap it in a towel. They love to sleep on it and it cools them down really well!

I have had real problems trying to find shade around my house today the sun just seemed to be everywhere, our large trampoline has thrown out some shade for part of the day.

I have hot water bottles being frozen, Ice blocks all shape and sizes in the freezer for tomorrow
Mine got the sprinkler as well today and they didn't object I think they were just too hot.

my rabbits are out throughout the night in the large runs all they have done is pant bless them and in my daughters bedroom for the day coolest in the whole house

the weather should be breaking her in Ireland on Thursday and I can't wait never thought I would say that as all it does is rain here usually
Arn't we just so UNGRATEFUL, MOANS MOANS AND MORE MOANS LOL

I know what you mean. Remember you can make a shade froma parasol even if you have a big umbrella too. or if you have a construction in your garden where you can throw a sheet on top will give shade. or put 4 poles/stakes int he ground and put a sheet/towel/blanket on top to make a shade. Garages are good for shade but I find with mine at baout 2/3 o'clock i have a bit of shade in the garden and they go out there with there freezer bottles.

I'm truly concerned how many piggies have died this week. Alot of owners arent that clued up but all the member on here are and trying their best to keep them cool.

remember if you need ideas have a look on this link http://www.theguineapigforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=1543.0

I know what you mean Michele. I worry so much about all the poor piggies and bunnies being left in gardens in this heat by clueless owners.

its so awlful this hot weather, is'nt it? I feel so ill with it , I had the air con on in the living room for my elderly dogs and me as well as celing fans, the pigs sheds have fans and the blinds down giving them some shade, we live on a hill so catch most of the wind thank goodness, but am hoping it breaks soon, as I said I feel so lifeless with it, the pigs bless them are burrowing under their hay no idea why? but they are drinking gallons of water I keep topping up all bottles through the day, to keep it cool other wise it warms up as well,

I am hateing it too so much. >:(

I dont like the hot weather any more and of course I worry about my animals while I am at work. I have done everything i can to try and keep them cool...but its not the same as being there and being able to check on them. Its so so worrying.

Thank goodness for my new shaded shed this year as if they were still in the old shed I dread to think what would have happened with this heatwave we are having.

Its murder in the offie here at work, I want to go home :'(
