Huskies are gorgeous dogs.
They are so majestic with their gray fur and blue eyes.
Whenever I see someone walking with a husky I automatically want to stop them and admire their dog. I live in the South where it is hot and humid in the summers. The fall, winter, and spring can be cold or mildly warm, but there are days where you feel the heat during that time as well. Sometimes when I see huskies in the summer, I worry about them. They are meant to live in cold temperatures and the purpose of that luxurious fur is to keep them nice and warm when it is cold outside. I do not like to judge people before I know the full situation, so one hot day I decided to ask an owner about having a husky in the south. I approached the owner on this hot day by complementing how beautiful their dog was and then we continued talking. I asked how the husky (his name was Midnight) handles the heat. He said that midnight loves to go on walks, so he generally walks him in the mornings and evenings when it is not as hot. He did state that midnight starts panting when it is very hot and humid out, so he tries to keep the walks quick and then immediately gets him into the central air conditioning. He also stated that Midnight loves when the thermostat is set extra low and that does not always help his electric bill. I suggested purchasing a smart thermostat because I absolutely love mine.
