Background: Hot dogs on ice - it's not an American hot weather snack but the briefest description of a story filmed in London, July 9. England's hottest summer for years prompted an ice rink manager to announce that people could bring their pets in to cool off.
The offer was accepted readily by owners of dogs and other pets, who were looked after by skating "belles" when they arrived on the ice.
Almost as soon as the ice rink was opened to pets, nature decided to end the cooling-off problem by ending the heat wave.
