    Quite a few huskies here too! I mean, it's not like it got to 44 degrees this summer, perfect weather for a husky!

    When the wet season starts (one of the many wet seasons...) I'll get some pics!

    Haha, that's his teddy bear! This is him without bear.

    People here treat dogs very differently to back home, locking dogs in flats all day is apparently normal. Also, pretty much all dogs wear shoes when it rains!!

    Oh yeah, and his name is Santa but I've started calling him Gustav.

    This ridiculous beastie is staying with me at the moment. He's one year old and his owner - a girl I've met only once, the day she dropped him off at mine for ten days - assured me he knows some basic commands. It's day 3 and he really doesn't. We're working hard on "sit".

    He normally only gets two short walks a day and gets locked on the balcony all day while his owner is at work. I can't bring myself to do that so he's been living the high life getting taken everywhere with me, including travelling solely by taxi - dogs are banned from public transport here.

    He's so nice! Look at those legs - half dog, half spider!
    Sorry to hear about Caleb (I'm a little out of the loop...).

    It's pretty hot here so my neighbours got their dog shaved.

    I just binge read the last 2.5 months of posts in this thread (I can't access lfgss without a VPN...). Well done to everyone who's raced (which is a lot of you!), good luck to anyone with races coming up and get well soon to the injured.

    Here in Shanghai it's 34 degrees and not yet summer. My local park is minutes from our house and has a 630m running track. The air is really not that bad, there's only been 1 day in the time I've been here when I've chosen not to run because of the air quality. I'm thinking of signing up for the Shanghai marathon in November.

    Running is definitely becoming more popular in China but it's nothing like the UK - I miss seeing people run all over the city at all hours. Then again, the rules of the road here are... well, I haven't got a clue, I'm not convinced there are rules, I got hit by a motorbike a few weeks ago - on the pavement.
