I had tree work done last Oct, and it totally destroyed my existing lawn. contractors planted annual ryegrass. I have 2 Siberian Huskys in backyard & am worried rye grass will die this summer & I will be left with muddy backyard.

You're right, ryegrass is a cool season turfgrass and will die down when temperatures get hot. You can overseed with bermuda grass now and it will grow up and become green about the same time the ryegrass browns out. Good luck with your turf.
