People are warned not to over exert when air quality is poor.  We are getting some residual bad air from fires very far away.  I’ve tried to keep my dogs indoors and they have cabin fever.  Scroll and look at the face of that dog getting a mask.  Whale eyes!

I live in an area with poor air quality and lots of heat and humidity in the summer. We don't do anything.  The dogs hate the heat and humidity.  It's not even a good idea to take them swimming because they won't dry in the humidity.  We stay in and wait for it to be over. At least it is getting darker earlier so they can have more outside time.
