Power Lost and St. Bernards
Having a St. Bernard (long haired) when all power is out and temps are 96 - 104F and heat indexs are far higher can be an issue of life and death for the dog; due to lost of power, my house AC cannot run (its a heavy duty 220v outside central air unit.) The modest generator I have can run much of the house but cannot handle that monster so I had to go out and buy a small window mounted AC unit. I never dreamed I'd do this but it is critcal to cool my St. Bernard. I set it up in the bedroom and the dog hangs out there with my daughter to stay cool - needless to say, the Bernard will sleep in the room as well (hope she doen't snore all night ... .)
So, a generator not only keeps my tank running for the fish (heater (like that is needed!), filters, air pumps) but also helps to maintain my St. bernard's well being.
