Who likes short shorts? We like short shorts! “Just huck it, we’re here to have fun not win” still almost won!
Shot out to the girls who had to play he entire game and showcased their awesome friz skills!
Life is always better at the beach! ✌🏼🧜🏼♀️
Day 8 - I enjoy music more than podcasts. I am the girl always singing while walking down the street.
Today was Good Things music festival in Sydney, and my sister and I went with some friends.
Unfortunately after being there for a whole 20 minutes, I passed out with a heart rate of 219 on my watch. When they hooked me up to monitors, my heart rate was 238.
After about three hours of being monitored, iced, given IV fluids, and made to drink a few litres of water, I was sent home.
A rather abrupt end to my musical festival day 😅
Thanks to the paramedics and doctors at the festival - your help was definitely appreciated!

**IMPORTANT REMINDER** HEAT STROKE CAN KILL A DOG IN MINUTES
With summer officially here, more HOT WEATHER is on the way
Dogues de Bordeaux are at HIGH RISK of suffering heat stroke. They are a large, brachycephalic breed. They don't pant as efficiently as breeds with longer noses and they have a big body to cool down. You must be EXTRA VIGILANT about keeping your dog safe from heat-related illness.
Signs of Heat Stroke:
- High body temperature (more than 40 degrees)
- Distress (Breathing and general agitation/restlessness)
- Excessive panting
- Increased Heart Rate
- Excess thick/sticky saliva
- Bluish-purple or bright red gums (due to inadequate oxygen supply to the tissues)
- Vomiting, diarrhoea (possibly with blood)
If you believe your dog is suffering heat stroke, the most important thing to do is COOL YOU DOG IMMEDIATELY. Ensure they are in the shade and move to aircon where possible. Cover them with a cold wet towel, use a hose or spray bottle to lightly cool them with water. DO NOT submerge your dog in ice water. GET THEM DRINKING if they are able and SEEK IMMEDIATE VETERINARY ATTENTION.
Dogs have a higher body temperature than us. Their sweat glands are confined to their nose and the pads of their feet. They can not cool themselves as efficiently as us. HEAT STROKE IS A SERIOUS CONDITION THAT REQUIRES IMMEDIATE ATTENTION. In a very short period of time an overheated dog can suffer critical brain, heart, liver and nervous system damage. Intensive care is usually required to save your dog's life. Intravenous fluids cool the body, maintain blood pressure, support the kidney system and generally help speed recovery. Initial home treatment greatly increases your dogs chance of survival. However, it usually isn't enough.
KEEP YOUR DOG INSIDE IN AIRCON WHERE POSSIBLE. Always provide clean water and shade for your dog. Shell pools and ice blocks are good.

As melbourne swelters through a hot summer day/night/day I’m remembering an equally sweltering day in July when Sam & I decided to catch a ferry to a national park in the south of France to go for a 5kilometre hike up an ancient cliff to a fort.
After taking turns thinking each other had heatstroke & trying to remember CPR we gave up and sat down to a bowl of mussels & waited 3 hours for the ferry to take us back.
Har underskattat värmen lite så dagens planerade 14 mil spenderades på 🚌 istället för 🚲.
Cykeln fick åka i mittgången då det blev lite missförstånd vid biljettköpet :)
Tillbaka i sadeln imorrn med sikte på Laos!

As summer begins, it may seem like a great time to be active with your pet. However it is important to be aware of the dangers of heatstroke in our dogs and cats. Heatstroke is caused by the elevation of your pets body temperature and early signs include:
•High body temperature •Distress
•Excessive salivating •Bluish gums caused by lack of oxygen
In order to prevent heatstroke, make sure you provide your pets with adequate water and shade, and avoid walking with your pet on hot days.
If you think your pet is suffering from heatstroke, call your local vet immediately.

I'll always remember my first heat stroke patient.
It was a Chow, brought in by two primary school-aged children. Their parents didn't speak English so I had to talk through the children.
Heat stroke is when the body's temperature rises to dangerously high levels (>40.5 degrees celcius) because it is unable to cool itself down (from high outside temperatures or from heat generated by exercise.) The high temperature destroys proteins in the body, causing the body to shut down and die. Dangerously high temperatures are fatal.
The Chow came in collapsed after the children took it for a walk. This was only a 25 degree (celcius) day. The dog's temperature was through the roof. Despite all attempts to cool the animal and correct shock, the dog died on the table.
Dogs don't sweat through their skin. Their main method for cooling down is panting. Any dog that is finding it harder to breathe and pant is at risk of overheating, especially with exercise on warmer days.
Dogs with squashed up faces, like Chows, Bulldogs, and Pugs, find it harder to breathe normally at rest. Thus, they are more at risk of overheating on hot days and/or with exercise. An overweight dog also finds it harder to breathe and is at higher risk.
Be very cautious walking dogs on very hot days.
Lil throwback to #Sedona
bc I’m actually missing the heat 🥶🥵🤒
To all those suffering through this heatwave, please remember to keep yourself and loved ones hydrated 💕
Watermelon, frozen peas with oats/water, and maintaining cool accessible drinking water throughout the day is my strategy for my girls.
Remember to respond to the first sign of heatstress! Heatstroke is deadly, avoid it by lowering body temperature of afflicted slowly when they are experiencing signs of heatstress or dehydration. If the heatstress progresses to heatstroke call an ambulance!
It’s gonna be a hot one today in #melbourne
☀️🥵🔥 Please make sure your pets have access to a cool rest area and have plenty of water available. Avoid walking your dog in the heat as one of the most common injuries we see in summer is paw pad burns from walking on hot asphalt and all #brachycephalic
breeds should avoid any form of exercise today! Signs of #heatstroke
include lethargy and listlessness, shortness of breath, rapid panting and whining, clumsy movement (as if they are drunk) and cats move more slowly and drink excessive water. Remember, pets have a different cooling mechanism than us so lying on cool tiles, wet towels or wetting their feet and ears/standing in shallow water to cool their feet are the more effective ways to cool an overheating pet. Stay cool 😎✌🏻❄️
PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOGS COOL 🐶☀️💦 With these crazy hot summer days, please look after your dogs! If the ground is too hot for you to walk on with no shoes, its too hot for your dog. I try not to walk Cooper when it’s 27 degrees + especially when the sun is shining.
Find other activities and games you can play in the house together if too hot to get out for a walk.
Don’t leave your dog in the car!
Dogs get heat stroke too! So please be careful and play it safe. Keep them cool and always make sure they have plenty of water.
This is Cooper’s favourite way to stay cool at home!
I’d love to hear how you keep your dog cool?
Summit of Mt.Albert Edwards this summer 2018. Part of being an artist is finding the time to disconnect and enjoy the challenges presented in the moment. Although I love what I do for a living(who wouldn’t ;)) I have also found a deep need for the outdoors and the ups and downs that come with hiking fishing adventure and exploration. So I am going to begin to post my off time challenges completed as well as the challenges of carvings I complete. Truly I see they go hand in hand #digdeep #outdoorlife #theehteam #brutalclimb #heatstroke #stillmadeit #callachopper
