Basenji's are from Africa, so they are naturally very acclimated to the heat, and Snoopy loves it! He will stop in the middle of a walk, and just lay down on the grass in the direct sunlight...even if the temp is 100 in the shade! He loves it, and will move out of the shade to be in it! In the house, as he lays around like a precious lazy lump..he always finds "his sunbeam" to lay in, and will crawl across the room as that piece of sun moves with the time, so that he is always laying in it. Sometimes it baffles me, he feels hot to the touch....why does he continue to lay in it? He'll get up and go get a drink, and go lay right back in that square. I have seen him scratch at the sunlight shining on a wall....as if he were trying to coax it off the wall and onto the floor so he can lay in it!
