Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photo if you need help reading this poster that I noticed in a department store’s pet department reminding owners that their dogs are especially susceptible to heatstroke(熱中症) as they can’t take off their coats!
The two characters 愛犬, love and dog, are often used together like this as a set for pet dogs, since they are loved and showered with affection. Can you pronounce them together as a compound? In the same way, you’ll often see the compound 愛車 in reference to a car that is treasured and taken care of. You can find an example of this in context here, in Kanji Kanban #25.
The numbers below refer to the kanji I’ve transcribed below the photo, and correspond to its order of appearance in both Heisig’s Remembering the Kanji and Kanji in Context.
