It's just plain HOT in HOTlanta!
Hello, everydoggie, everykittie, bear and hooman! It's me, Patches! I just checked the thermo...thermet...termt...um, that thing that tells us how hot it is outside! It says 95.1 degrees! No wonder we don't want to stay out there for very long! I guess that's why they call this HOTlanta! We are actually about 30 miles north of Atlanta, but it gets just as hot HERE!
Last week, our mom watched our neighbor's Puggie doggies while they were on vac...vata..va...um, out of town! She went over there to make sure they had lots of cool water and foodables. The little Puggies are brother and sister (actual littermates). The black one is a little girl and the buff colored one is a larger male. The male doggie scared the "you know what" out of our mom, the first time she went over there. He just stayed in his crate and wouldn't even come out! So, from then until the next time she went over, she was a nervous wreck! She didn't want to have to call the neighbor when he was away, to tell him that his dog was sick...or worse! Well, the next time she went over, both Puggies were bouncing all over the place and they put their hairs ALL over OUR mom! We had to sniff every inch of her when she came home!
Now, our mom is feeding and watering the other neighbor's animals. They have 2 totally aquatic froggies and Mom just has to drop some foods into a little hole at the top of their "house". It's a good thing that's all she has to do, because she sure isn't going to touch the froggies! They have a bunny that has her very own hutch in the woods behind the neighbor's house. Mom got to pet her when she went over to get feeding instructions, but now, when our mom shows up, the bunny runs to the other end of her house and hides. Do you think she might smell Aire-heads on our mom? The only other animal that mom has to take care of is the c-a-t! Yes, I said C-A-T! Domino is a pretty cool cat, but our mom won't let us go near her! (Someday, we'll make her tell you why!) She likes to come over to our house and lounge on our front step. The NERVE! We can smell her through the door, so we know she's there and we try to bark her away, but I guess she knows we can't get to her 'cause our barking doesn't scare her one bit!
Somewhere, in all these pictures, is a rare photo of Penny. Since our mom is old, senile, and a whack job, she can't remember in what order she loaded the pictures! (And stoopid Vista won't show them to her before the post is published). Oh yeah, and she's on ant-eye-bye-oticks again for yet ANOTHER sinus infection. She's also using something called a Neti Pot, for her sinuses. She pours it into one nostril and then the other. The first time she used it, she felt like she was drowning, but once she got past that feeling, the neti pot is like a miracle for the sinuses! She says even though she's using the neti pot, she still feels like 10 pounds of crap in a 5 pound bag...whatever THAT means! I guess it's because of the infection, but it can't be all THAT bad...she's still feeding us and she ran away with Aunt Wendy, yesterday, for the WHOLE day! They left to go yard sale-ing at about 7:30 in the morning and didn't come home until almost 4:00! Oh, Mom says I have to tell you that they did come home for a few minutes around noon. They had to unload the car and let us out to potty! I also heard a rumor that they went out to breakfast AND lunch! And guess what they brought US! NOTHING! How could they be so cruel?
Well, everybuddy, I'm going to go lay on an aire-conditioning vent! Try to stay cool wherever YOU are!
Patches (and Penny too)
