Dog days of summer? Lindsay basks in high temperatures during fair week
Lindsay continues to bask in hot summer weather, even though summer itself has supposedly started to transition into fall.
With the start of the Lindsay Central Exhibition this week – typically a fair that sees its share of rain — there seems to be little chance of precipitation in the forecast so far.
Lindsay resident Katee Grant soon realized her dog, Thorton, wasn’t going to be shy at getting some heat relief. He jumped in paws-first for a drink and a splash this morning in front of Lindsay’s downtown municipal building.
“He loves the fountain and always like to drink out of it but today was a first,” Grant says, with the dog halfway climbing in.
“He loves to swim and I fear this will be his new favourite swimming hole,” she laughs.
Grant works at the Olympia Restaurant in town and it was just a brief before-work walk for the four-month-old Great Dane.
Grant calls him “lazy 90 per cent of the time” but notes he likes to do silly things once in a while.
Thorton will be excited to know that expected temperatures range from 26 to 30 degrees this week, with high levels of humidity expected.
