I live in 100 degree + temperatures. My normal active 4 yr

I live in 100 degree + temperatures. My normal active 4 yr old shih tzu is not able because of the heat to go for our usual 6 block 2x a day walk, because the heat burns his paws. therefore walk are short and done at 5:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. He is being very difficult in drinking water, refusing to do so, except for small drinks several times a day. He also appears to be constipated, straining to poop and then its small and dark (not black or sticky). He gets fresh cooked chicken, fresh veggies, peas, carrots, pumpkin (a t spoonfull, 2x a day, plus a 1/2 t of coconut oil mixed with his science diet small breed lamb and barley dry dog food(approx 1/2 c) 2x a day. He eats most of it and if not finished I remove and discard. He is sleeping a lot more than usual, but will play tug of war or chase the toy with me every day several times a day. What can I do to help his constipation, and get him to drink more water?

My Westie ate some cooked pork rib bones last night...threw up most of the night (bone pieces) and just had another bowel movement - some bone pieces and a very small amount of blood in the stool (just red - not bleeding if you know what I mean). What should we do...wait for another bowel movement or take him to get checked out? He seems fine and ate some of his food this morning. Has not vomited for 6 hours now.
