How To “BEAT THE HEAT” in Paris!

They say it has been overly HOT this summer in Paris, but fortunately for little me… Mummy found a perfect solution to help keep me nice and cool! The owner of our rented apartment had a cute little doggie bed waiting for me on our arrival… wasn’t that sooo nice?!?!?!!! Mummy found some special bags at the grocery store that Parisiens use to make ICE (hahahaha… I guess they just can’t be bothered with a simple ice TRAY!) You fill them up with water, put them in the freezer, and they make little round cubes. Then you peel open the bag and VOILA… you have ice cubes! But Mummy has frozen several bags for me and covers one with a blanket to put in my little bed, that way it makes a chilly spot for me to nap. When the bag begins to thaw, she puts it back in the freezer and gets out a new frozen bag… so we just keep them circulating. They don’t last long, eventually they will spring a leak since this isn’t really the intended purpose, but it’s working for now and keeping me nice and cool! I love my Mummy for always thinking of me first! ❤️?❤️

    I bet a little ice cream treat would help too.

    What a great idea but Millie I sleep with mommy and daddy and they have a ceiling fan and floor fan on us and no air conditioning. It’s still 78 in the house in the morning. Stay cool little princess. You look so adorable. Bisou bisou from Charlie your top fan.

      We have two floor fans blowing on us but no ceiling fans… there is NO A/C in the apartment so it is very hot but we are doing what we can to stay cool.

    Learning so much from your trip. I didn’t realize they don’t use a/c there. Hope the temps drop soon so you are comfortable and cool.

      This is the one thing I will never understand about this city… the refusal to install AC!!! Ok, and the refusal to USE ICE in drinks. Ok, and they don’t use ketchup on french fries!!! OY Vey!!! LOLOLOLOL

    I guess I thought EVERYONE has air conditioning? My little friend Tanner in Canada doesn’t have air conditioning and when my Uncle traveled to the Philippines they didn’t have air conditioning, and you don’t have air conditioning in Paris I find this all very shocking! awww it’s so sweet they had a little bed just for you Millie!! I learn so much each time you travel!

    Millie tell your Mom to take you out to one of the beautiful fountains they have in Paris and you can get under the water. So Cool!!1

    What? No HVAC? Actually when we went to Scotland there wasn’t much of that either. Your mommy is so sweet!

    I hate the heat so I feel bad that you aren’t able to get out and do things.

      Every now and then we have a cooler, overcast day and those are great days for exploring… but we try and just do one sightseeing thing a day and not overdo it. We aren’t trying to see the whole city… there is no plan. We just “wing it” every day. 👍

    That is really, really, really nice of your Mommy to do that for you since it is hard for you to do it. Hope you are helping to keep Mommy COOL too???????
    P.S. Have you heard anything from your Sisters? How are they coping without the two of you???????? Stay Cool and enjoy Paris……we sure are back here . Love to you both…Kiss,Kiss from Shali and I.

      Daddy sent us pictures and said they are running around all day acting crazy and they are very happy. He said he keeps them amped up with extra snacks so I guess they are getting super fat and spoiled!!! 😂😂😂

    Millie you r Mummy would not let you sweat! She knows that it’s not good to get over heated! Just make sure you don’t forget and not lay on the ice without the towel on it. Isaw on Facebook that it’s not got to give furbabies whole ice cubes or ice cold water. I don’t like being hot either it take a lot out of you! 💋💋
