she can handle quite high temps probably because she is use to it

Now heat will make dogs more lethargic because activity makes them feel hotter so they rest and thats what i presume is going on with your dog

As far as blood sugar for jesse i would say she runs a bit lower in the hotter months but i am just speculating on that
He has been more quiet during this heat wave and we are making sure he is drinking a lot of water, giving him cool baths and he has a cooler jacket on him most of the time but over the weekend he hasnít really needed it so with the temps going back up, I wonder if it caught him out and he just feels a bit ugh...

I just wanted to check because iím Kinda freaking out here, lol!
