Don't forget to hydrate your Gordon this summer. Clean fresh water is always important, but particularly in the summer. Their long black hair is a good insulator in wintertime, but can cause them to overheat in hot weather. Along with clean, fresh, drinking water, treat your Gordon and take him to the lake or stream nearby. (Also a good means of exercise) If that's not plausible, buy one of those cheap $10.00 kiddie pools and fill it up with the hose. Some Gordons like water, some do not. Either way, your Gordon will appreciate the cool down.
