I delayed disconnecting my outdoor garden hose from the outside spigot before the freezer that hit us today. I went to disconnect it, and I have found that the connection is very hard (couldn't do it with gloves hand) to turn, and I guess there was some water in the hose, so it feels like solid ice inside of it for at least about a foot out. I don't know anything about any interior shutoff for the spigot or anything like that. Should I attempt to thaw the outside connection and disconnect the hose, or will that cause more potential damage? I was thinking warm water or a hair dryer and pliers. Thank you for any advice!
It's super hot and my dog is getting old. Today I soaked her gently with cool hose water. (She doesn't love it but tolerates it well if I am gentle.) I figure it will help her cool off both as the water is running over her and later as the water evaporates. I am reading online that wet dog fur traps heat. What's the real story?

I'm renovating my bathroom, and want a hand shower mounted in the tile of the batch enclosure, on a hose, like in this image. But it seems like water can get into the hose hole and then collect under the bath. There will be a shower over the bath, although at the other end of the bath to the handheld. My plumber is a bit worried about how to waterproof it. How are these type of retractable hand showers normally waterproofed?
