Record breaking heat in San Diego County..

Last week it finally heated up around the county. A town nearby reached 117 degrees for a record breaker.  It was even over 100 degrees at the beach. 

We decided to take all the dogs to Santa Margarita River in our northern part of SD county. 

It was an overcast day, which made for some really cool reflections in the water. 

The pictures below have gone to the dogs!! I hope you enjoy checking out our swimming day. The dogs spent most of the time in the water! 

I used this one for the cover, his name is Keizer and is my sons dog. He is a cool mix, great dane mixed with husky. Makes for one big ole happy lug.. 

He has heterochromia. Two different colored eyes. 

So does Luna, my Doberman Australian Shepherd mix. She is now 5 months old. 

It is so green here! They are looking for the wolf.. (My other mixed breed dog) They cannot keep up with her, and have to keep on locating her.. It’s a tough job.

This is Lily my sons Doberman Pinscher, with Luna tagging along behind. 

The dogs spot the wolf, behind the trees on the other side of the River. She went up that trail… There are three dogs in this shot. See the doberman ahead of the red dog? You can just barely see her head. Luna swims about half way but can’t be that far from her humans..She keeps close still. 

Lily found the wolf! It’s hard to find her. Look at Lily’s expression if you can see it. lol 

Then the wolf crosses..

And she reaches the shore. Her coat looks so smooth..

Until she shakes. lol

Time to go back across the river to hunt that rabbit. 

The older dogs treat her like such a puppy. lol They left her to go hunting on the other side..

Luna is really good at amusing herself though..

She decided to dig holes by the bank and watch them fill in with water. lol She did this for about an hour.

Holes dug, now time for it to fill..

They older dogs never caught that pesky wabbit..

All in all, it was a very nice day and so cool in the dark shade by the waters edge. 

I hope you enjoyed these, and have a great day!

  1. All nice pictures, I feel like I went there! Well I am not so very far from SD after all. It has been triple digits all week up here in the Palm Springs area, but it did cloud over and rain for a while on Wednesday.

  2. Beautiful dogs and the photos are perfect shots Kim. So glad they have a cool place to get water and cool. The weather is crazy hot here but not that bad. The humidity is what we get a lot of. Can hardly breathe.

    • Thank you Carol. Like I said below, we don’t have an air conditioner. We usually only have to open a few windows during the hot months. I forgot to mention this was a monsoon heat wave, the humidity was in the 80’s. ick.

    • Thank you, sometimes that is the best move. We don’t have air conditioning here, well no one does on the beach. We usually don’t need it. So it was time to hit the water!! Our ocean temps are even at 74 degrees this week.

  3. I always enjoy your posts and your dogs very much. This was a great idea to bring them all to cool down for a few hours. The weather here is also scorching. On July the 1st (Canada day) we had a whopping 48-49 degrees centigrade (humidex included). Yes we broke the all time record here in the Outaouais region. The festivities on Parliament Hill took on a downward spiral because of the excruciating heat. I found myself melting literally but not enough to lose any unwanted pounds (ha! ha!). And now the heat wave still continues on and off but mostly on. I will say I absolutely hate the hot and muggy weather. Sorry if I am venting on this comment. But please say Hi to Luna, Lily, Keizer and all the other dogs if you have any for me. I am glad that at least they had a chance to refresh themselves in the cool water.

    • Thank you Gal! Wow. 48-49. It feels like your face is going to melt off. Our heat wave lasted four days. We are having our normal 80 degree days here, finally. I love the summer, but these temps are pretty scary after they reach the 100 mark. 118 to 119 is insane.
      I hope it cools down more for you all!!
