Late yesterday afternoon, we lost our power. The temp. here was about 98; I have never seen it that high here where I live. When the power didn't come back on in about an hour, we packed up and went to a Holiday Inn where dogs are allowed. We have 4 dogs, two of which are not well and one probably would not have survived without at least a fan moving the air around. If one can be proud of one's dogs' behaviors, it's me. They rode in the elevator without hesitation, they never barked (and one of them is a Sheltie, notorious for barking), they went outside and peed on command. I expected the Sheltie to be well behaved but had great trepidation about the big guy 'cause he can try to be dominant - but he was so good. The downside is that now I'm wondering if that "goodness" is another indication that he's really not well. The other two dogs, who stayed in my son's room, were also good although they did bark a bit.
