Hot, Hot, Hot, Hazy and Humid!

Hi everydog, kitty, hammie, bear and hooman! It's me, Poppy! It has been sooooo hot outside, lately, that all we want to do is lay on the floor in the air conditioning. On top of being hot, it's also hazy and humid. That means that the air quality isn't fit for anydog to be out in and the humidity makes it feel even hotter than it actually is! This is a picture of me just chillin' in the living room. We don't know what's up with the back of that couch...it looks dirty in every picture, but in real life, it doesn't look dirty at all. Maybe it's because our mom has to clean it a lot because I like to rub against it every time I come in from outside and Patches thinks she has to wipe her face on it all the time.
This is where Patches likes to lay when Mom in on the 'puter. That way she can see Mom in the office and still keep an eye on dad too! Sorry the picture is so dark...she's in the hallway where there isn't a whole lot of light.

Our pawrents went yard sale-ing, this morning, and they didn't bring us back a single toy! We know that we don't exactly NEED anymore toys, but we have come to expect new ones every week! We are really disappointed when they show up without any. They have to go to PetCo on Tuesday, so maybe they will bring us some toys then...or maybe some TREATS!!! That would be even better!

We have a change of plans for when Mom goes away without us. Patches will be staying home with me and Penny instead of staying with Ezzy and Jagger. It seems that one girl doggie just won't fit in with the two boy doggies. Patches gets too nervous when she's away from home and she can't help but piddle all over the place. She takes about a week to get over it, so Aunt Wendy's house would be a mess by the time Mom got home. We will just all stay here with Dad and we'll probably all be happier because our daily routine won't be disrupted. Well...except for the fact that Mom won't be here!

Our pawrents' bank finally got their checking account fixed and all the missing money put back. That sure is a relief...we didn't like the idea of going without treats for very long. The only problem with the whole thing is that now, they have the money to get us groomed. Penny went last week and it will be Patches' turn on Tuesday. Whew...I'm glad I already got my Aire-cut a couple of weeks ago! I did hear a rumor, though, that I will be next for a bath. That really stinks! Or maybe it's ME that stinks! No, that can't be right! I thought Mom was out of doggie shampoo! Oops...she says she bought MORE!
Well, everybuddy, we're going back to lounging on top of air vents now. We stay nice and cool that way, but it keeps all the cold aire from getting to Mom and Dad. We don't see what the problem is! We hope all of you are staying cool!
Poppy, Penny & Patches

Hi Poppy, Penny and Patches

Hope the heat is not so bad this weekend. Baths sound a marvellous idea to cool you down, I, Molly, love the hosepipe and run through the spray to keep cool.

Hey Girlies, you need a pool and ICE CREAM!! Gald the 2 leggededs bank is finally sorted.

Stay cool. Eric x x

River said...

Stay in and stay cool! Getting groomed should help you feel cool. A small price to pay--esp. now that your pawrents have money again.

love & wags,

Hi Poppy, Penny and Patches.... Oh just take that bath and get that airecut.... You WILL feel better and cooler!!! Glad the banking situation is fixed. We were worrying about the toy and treat situation at your place.

G'day gals,
Sounds like you need to come on down here and cool off a bit.
You'll all have great fun with your dad while mums away. We hang with our dad B all the time when D goes to Sydney.

Hi, Poppy, Penny and Patches!
Glad to hear the bank problem is fixed! When my mom had the same problem it took more than 2 months to be solved!
I am sure you 3 will be fine and happy taking care of your Dad while your Mom is away!
Kisses and hugs

Molly the Airedale said...

We're so glad to hear the bank problem is all straightened out! What a relief for your mom and dad! And we're happy that Patches will be staying right where she loves it most while your mom is away!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Dexter said...

Surely your comfort comes first. If your mom and dad want to cool off, they should lay down on the air vents themselves.

Will Patches be OK staying with you guys? She seems to be fitting in.

It is hot here too, it stinks. I can't imagine heat with all that fuzzy fur you guys have. At least the groomers will take some fur and you will be cooler!

Heat and humidity is a nasty combination. Staying low really helps to stay cool and having your humans buy you a kiddy pool. Tell them they are on sale now. Then beg.

Air conditioning is a wonderful thing! I don't know how I would survive without it.

Hope you don't have to get a bath. It is an awful thing,

Your friend,

Isn't that what lounges are for? To rub against! :-)

It's great news that your pawrents got their money back.



Pedro said...

It's hot in NY too! I think it's hot everywhere now. My cousins in Texas have had over 100 degree heat for something like 10 days now. That's tooo much! I don't mind the heat so much but Ziggy really hates it. He likes to sit on the steps of the swimming pool to cool off. I'll tell him to try lying on the vents!

Hi Poppy, Penny & Patches,

It's been hot and humid here too - I've been very still lately (which is very rare for us 'dales :-). I hope that you all get some cool weather soon!

Kirby said...

I totally understand about the heat and humidity! It has been hot here too! I just go shaved down AGAIN! Here's hoping that you get a little something from PetCo tomorrow!

Your pal,

Argh, heat makes me sleepy and slow. I hate that.

I have seen lots of doggies with their own blowup pools - maybe time to invest in that instead of grooming?


Deetz said...

I am so happy to hear that the money got back to the bank and you get to get your treats now...That was a scary deal for sure.
I wanted to stop and tell you all thanks so much for your prayers for Charlottes safe return.....

Hi Poppy,
you girls ought to move to California. It gets hot, but there is no high humidity, so its okay. We don't use the AC that much. I think you would like it!
