This summer has proven to be a hot one, and it’s important to remember that our pets can as easily be affected by the heat as their humans. The Humane Society of the United States has some great tips on how to keep your pets cool. For the full story, go to their website, but here’s their quick list:
- Never leave your pets in a parked car, not even for a minute
- Watch the humidity; the higher the humidity, the more difficult it is for your pet to cool itself
- Limit exercise on hot days; early morning or late evening is best
- Don’t rely on a fan; fans do not effectively cool off pets
- Provide ample shade and water; tree shade and tarps are best
- Add ice cubes to your pet’s water for extra cooling
- Keep your pet from overheating indoors or out with a cooling body wrap, vest or mat
- Watch for signs of heatstroke, including heavy panting, rapid heartbeat, and lethargy, and contact your veterinarian

Thanksgiving is upon us, and in addition to enjoying time with family and friends, it is a time to reflect on what we are all thankful for. We at Wheelhouse Apartments are thankful for our wonderful residents, and for the chance to provide them with a quality living experience in Denver.
We’re also thankful for all the wonderful opportunities that living in the mile-high city provides. Here are just a few Thanksgiving ideas for spending your time in Denver.
Help Others in Need
Both the Denver Rescue Mission and the Epworth Foundation have their annual events to help bring Thanksgiving into the home of people in need. You can help by donating food, money, or your time.
Don your goofiest turkey costume and join over 20,000 others in Washington Park this year for the Annual 4-Mile Turkey Trot. Or grab your skates and show off your ice-skating moves on the rink at Skyline Park.
Try Out a New Restaurant
If cooking isn’t your thing, try out a new restaurant … many Denver establishments have special Thanksgiving menus.
Increase Your Cultural IQ
See a movie, read a book, or check out a new art exhibit. Denver’s cultural opportunities abound!
If you must shop this weekend, why not buy local? It’s said that local businesses generate 70% more local economic activity than big-box stores.
