The sun has finally come out and Donegal charity Animals In Need have offered the following advice to ensure that your pets enjoy the warm weather safely too.Dogs in cars – Every summer dogs die from heatstroke, most commonly when left inside a parked car. Within minutes the temperature inside a car can rise by up to 20 degrees above that outside, turning the car into an oven that bakes the dog from the inside out.Ventilation – Dogs can’t cope with the heat by sweating like humans do and can only sweat through their paws or by panting. Leaving a car window open isn’t enough ventilation so if you think you’ll have to leave your dog unattended in a car for any time at all, please just leave them at home instead. Heatstroke – A dog suffering from heatstroke will need urgent veterinary care, but in the meantime, try to lower the dog’s temperature by moving him to a cooler area, wetting the coat and particularly the paws and face and if possible, immerse the dog fully in cool water.Burnt Paws – To avoid dogs sustaining burnt paws as asphalt pavements soften and melt or from contact with scorching metal or sand, walk them in the early mornings and evenings when it is cooler. If you couldn’t walk along with bare feet, neither should they.Shade – If your animal spends a lot of time outside, make sure they always have access to a shaded area and plenty of fresh water to drink.Sunburn – Dogs and cats can suffer from sunburn, especially if they are light coloured or white, and exposed areas such as their nose and ears are particularly at risk. Either keep them inside during the hottest hours or ask your vet for a recommended safe sunblock/cream to use – baby sun cream used sparingly is often fine as long as it doesn’t carry warnings about ingestion but it’s always best to double check with an expert. Dehydration – Feral cats can become dehydrated during a heatwave as their normal water source dries up, so please consider leaving out a bowl of water for any stray animals or thirsty wildlife that may be actually dying for want of a drink.Animals In Need: How to keep your pets safe this summer was last modified: June 30th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
On-loan Fulham striker Marcello Trotta’s goal three minutes before the break gave underdogs Brentford a sensational – and fully deserved – lead in the FA Cup fourth-round clash at Griffin Park.They settled after a shaky start and Trotta fired over before Bees playmaker Harry Forrester sent an effort wide.Encouraged, the League One side kept pressing and almost took the lead when Adam Forshaw shot just wide.And they went ahead when Forrester’s 25-yard shot was parried by Ross Turnbull and Trotta pounced on the loose ball to score.Chelsea, with Fernando Torres up front and John Terry back in the starting line-up, gave the ball away numerous times – Frank Lampard lost possession in the build-up to the goal.Their cause has not been helped by stand-in keeper Turnbull, whose uncertainty and poor distribution have added to the Blues’ jitters.Brentford: Moore, Logan, Dean, Dodson, Craig, Forshaw, Douglas, Diagouraga, Forrester, Donaldson, Trotta. Subs: Lee, Barron, Saunders, Adeyemi, Dallas, Reeves Hayes.Chelsea: Turnbull, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Lampard, Marin, Oscar, Bertrand, Torres. Subs: Hilario, Ferreira, Azpilicueta, Mata, Benayoun, Ake, Ba.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

With the flood situation in Assam and Mizoram still grim, officials in other northeastern States are on red alert since water levels in major rivers may increase any time with the rains. As Assam is the source of all goods transported to other northeastern States, the movement of trucks and inter-State buses has been hampered. Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh told The Hindu that the government’s long-term plan was to dredge river beds. He said, “As a result of rampant deforestation, there is heavy silting in the mountains and most of the rivers have muddy instead of running water. This will quicken the death of the Loktak lake, the largest freshwater lake in eastern India.” The flood situation in upper Assam has been officially described as “critical”.

The India-Pakistan connection made them a global talking point at the US Open but Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi do not even consider themselves from two different nations.They were the first India-Pakistan combination to reach a Grand Slam final and their coming together and doing well at a tennis major, generated a huge interest.Even the Ambassadors from the two countries to the United Nations came together to cheer them and it was enough for media to add some political colour to the coverage, considering the two countries have fought three wars since becoming independent.Media coined terms like ‘Indo-Pak Express, Indo-Pak peace pair’ to describe their pairing but Bopanna today said he and Qureshi have never thought about the countries they belong to and their compatibility as individuals was the sole reason behind their partnership.”Qureshi and I got together because we felt that we would make a good doubles team. We know each other for so long and have a great understanding so it only made sense to play together.”We never intended on making any political statement. It is the media who gives us these tags, we never look at each other as being from different countries,” Bopanna told PTI in an interview.Asked that playing with a strong slogan such as “Stop War, Start Tennis” itself was a political statement, Bopanna said them being ambassadors for peace was the sole reason for having that message on their on-court attire.”We are just here to play tennis. We are great friends off the court and are looking to take our careers forward together. Since we are ambassadors for peace we try to spread that message through sports. We are not here to make any political statements,” he insisted. .advertisementThey brought together the two hostile nations to clap, scream and enjoy together and Bopanna said he and Qureshi would love to do more with their partnership.”Well, we want people to trust and respect each other.Sports should never be subject to religion or politics,” he said.Talking about the biggest match of their career, the Indian Davis Cupper said he and Qureshi now have the belief that they are Grand Slam material and could soon even win one.”Earlier we used to win the first set but fall of on the second set and then take the third. But now we want to win big. We focus even harder on the second set, and the entire US Open, the only sets we dropped were in the finals.”Also that we can compete at this level and we know we belong here. We just need to stay focused, work hard and we can win a Grand Slam final.”The runners-up trophy has already earned them a huge bonanza as they are now ranked world number six.”Hopefully, it will lead to many great performances and eventually take us to the No.1 spot in doubles. I am noted as a confidence player, and I am sure that this final, will help me be a more confident player and doing better.”Bopanna could have been only the fourth Indian and Qureshi first Pakistani to win a Grand Slam had they beaten the Bryan brothers — Mike and Bob — in the US Open final.They are little disappointed to miss out on history but still very much satisfied.”We are still working our way towards winning a Grand Slam. Despite the result it was a great achievement to make it to the finals. We were a bit disappointed, but looking back I think that is definitely something to be proud of,” he said.
