Alex loves to sunbathe regardless of what time of the year it is. You look at her and she seems to be in heaven.
Dogs with short hair like Alex tend to get cold very easy and maybe because of that they crave the sun. I was reading not too long ago about senior dogs, now one of my many favorite subjects since Alex is a senior doggie, that discussed things that senior dogs should do such as: exercise, proper diet, message, and sunbathing, to name a few. I remember the article about sunbathing because Alex enjoys doing that, and according to what I read sunbathing is good for them because it gives them a, “healthy boost of sunshine into their systems.” If you want to read more about it, check out this website, http://www.pekinews.com/why-do-dogs-like-to-sunbathe-the-reason-behind-your-pekingeses-sunbathing/
