Beating the heat

Hey, everybody, Wendell here again. It is HOT outside. I was born last August and didn't go outside much my first couple of months, so this is my first real taste of the Texas heat. When it's this hot, a pug's gotta do whatever he can to stay cool. Fortunately, I don't share my big brother's aversion to water. So I've been hittin' the hose pretty frequently.

Ahhhh .... so refreshing.

The humans won't let me come back inside before I dry off, so I try to help them out. Now you're probably wondering how Mugsy beats the heat. Well, he has his own favorite method:

Air conditioning.

We too are among the technologically advanced dogs to avoid the outside during this weather.

How about a slip and slide or your own pool? Perhaps the ministry could provide one.

Wendell, I'm with you on the water thing. However, I like air conditioning, too.

PS You and the Ayatollah are SOOO cute!!!

Lucy said...

Wow, Wendell I'm very concerned with your willingness to play in the hose. Water is the fruit of the Devil! It starts with the hose and the next thing you know you will be willingly taking baths - repent now with Mugsy's guidance!

Well we harem had much fun in the air con Wendell.

but on a side note ... that spray of water could be dangerous - could shoot your eye out!!! BE CAREFUL please!

I applaud your choice, Misty.

Perhaps, God willing, the ministry will bring in enough donations to finance such a project, Rabbi Jake.

Thank you, Sarah S.

I tried to dissuade him, Lucy. But he looked so cute playing in the water, I had to just let him go.

Fear not, Aine. We keep the hose set on mist. It is harmless.

PS. "Hitting the hose" sounds...well, dirty.
