Climate Change & Dogs in Chicago

I attended a talk on climate change in Chicago at the Wild Things Conference last Saturday, when it was 65 degrees.

The next day my husband and I (below – note he is wearing shorts) took my cocker spaniels, Buffy (tan) and Chipper (black & white) to Illinois Beach State Park. Buffy was so hot, she waded into frigid Lake Michigan. The date was February 19th with the temperatures in the upper 60s! This was a first in my lifetime for a week of temperatures this warm in February. Climate change is here. Today (2/22) it’s predicted to be in the 70s!
