Dakota has sat by our deck door for days, wishing I'd let him outside. I know how awful the smokey whether has been on my lungs and my contact lenses. He might be a large cat, but he's got a smaller respiratory system than me!
People in Idaho are in pretty good shape generally with low obesity rates and high activity levels, but our pets aren't following that trend. It looks like we really need to take the dog for a walk more often.
