Stay Cool, Dawg!

As the summer months heat up here in the deep South, we are taking all necessary precautions to make sure we stay safe.  Yesterday we had record breaking high that took out a hundred year old record, and it ain't over yet.  Today the expected high is 100 with a heat index of 106!  Brings new meaning to "HOT DOG"!  AROOOF!

When I go outside, I get my business taken care of quickly and hurry to the shade to indicate to the hoo-mans that I'm done and it is time to go back inside. 
I heart being in the shade!!


 Of course, a good splash in the kiddie pool never hurts either!
Splishing and a splashing, baby!  Dat's right!!





But my favorite place is inside with the cool air conditioner on the cool floor at my cool mom's feet.



 And please all my doggie friends, make sure your hoo-mans remember to provide you with clean, fresh drinking water and plenty of shade and shelter from the hot, hot sun!  I wuf vu all!!


AROOOOF!

  1. We know all about that heat too, Boondocks. We are just starting to heat up here. We don't have a cute little pool any more but we do love our inside cool air vents. We hope you can get a bit of a break in that heat so you can have some more fun outside.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. Wow, I hope you guys are all ok there on the east side of the USA.

    We are still having really pleasant weather and it finally stopped raining.

    Do stay cool, that heat stroke stuff is really something to watch out for.

    Be careful

  7. We're getting a nice break from the heat! Its been so nice to sit on our porch and have the windows open too--I know it won't last, which is why we'll soak it up while we can!

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

  8. Good advice Boon. We're lucky we're still in the high 70s/low
    80s.
    Stay cool.

  11. Until yesterday it was disgustingly hot here, too. We went hiking last weekend and after less than an hour had to stop, because Toby was just too hot.

    Stay cool :)
