Get someone to water them for you. I used to give my young neighbour a few dollars to come and water for me.

Other than that....some plastic drink bottles with some holes pierced in them so they have a slow drip.

You could also put them in an old bathtub (or some sort of container) with some water in the bottom so they can drink when they need. Also try and put them in the shade, as you guys are having some pretty hot weather up there which makes them dry out so much quicker.

Also agree with Gypsy. We often ask our neighbours to feed the dogs and water the vegie garden and pots & generally keep an eye on the place. We have great neighbours so we are pretty lucky and we also repay the favour as we are both have dogs. The neighbours also have chooks that my girls love to look after.

lift them out put a plastic bag around it,give it a good water and the plastic bag will help retain the water ,i have mine like that anyways as they do dry out quick.
