The Dog Days of Summer

Aaahh... nice and cool under the ceiling fan.

Aaahh... nice and cool under the ceiling fan.

I can’t tell you how hot and humid it is today where I live. I went out this morning for my daily constitutional, played with my Possy next door for just a bit and now I’m settling in for a nice nap. I’ll bet it’s already 90 degrees F. And it’s still morning!

Listen to me when I say “stay inside in the cool when it’s hot outside”.

What You Learned Today:

  • I don’t like hot weather. It’s too much work to cool down with all the panting I have to do.
  • “The dog days of summer” are here right now in the northern hemisphere, where I live. Ancient folks like the Greeks and Romans thought that Sirius (the “dog star”) caused all the heat and hot weather that made people act crazy.
  • There’s nothing like a ceiling fan – a tasteful one, of course – to cool off a dog while he naps. Aaahhh.
  • How do I get a star named after me?  “The Stuart Star” has a nice ring to it….

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a dog blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 12 years old in March 2018. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!
