Too Darned Hot!

You Caught Me!

You Caught Me!

Ooops! This is NOT a nice pose for such a dignified guy, but hey, it’s too darned hot outside to do much of anything at all. So I thought I’d catch up on my napping today. (Who am I kidding? I snooze just about all the time, so what’s to “catch up”?) This is my daytime snooze perch. (I’ve got another late afternoon snooze perch.) From this little place I can hear the mailperson come up the front steps and try to stuff stuff through the too-small slot in the wall. I can keep tabs on Them as they rattle around. I can hear my Possy when they’re out back barking.

No doubt the Possy is staying indoors today. Me too. It’s just too hot for me, my Possy and my Peeps. Too many of you humans just don’t realize how bad it is to throw us outside in weather like this. Especially when the humidity is staggering. “Like a blast furnace” She says. Of course, They’d never expect me to be outside in this heat. They don’t like it either.

Do me and my cousins a favor, will you? Keep the fresh, cool water coming; be sure there’s shade outside somewhere when we’re out; and don’t take us for joyous car rides in weather like this then LEAVE US with the windows rolled up!!!!

What You Learned Today:

  • When it’s hot outside, stay inside.
  • If we just can’t stop panting, pay attention to things like what color our gums are, and that kind of thing.  We may need to go to the doctor.
  • The pads of our feet can get burned on hot pavement or even hot beach sand!
