It's SO freakin' HOT (according to mom)

Yep...that's ALL mom's been saying lately..."It's SOOOO freakin' HOT outside!" She's been dragging my butt out of the big cloud bed at SIX THIRTY to do our 2.3 miles before it gets too hot outside, which then means that I don't usually speak to her for the rest of the day...

Just so you don't think we're being all dramatic about is a pic of our weather station thermometer the other day...
The first number is INSIDE and the second number is OUTSIDE

I kept going out on the deck to snooze in the sun but mom was all flipped out and worried that I was going to roast myself or get overheated. She put Holden's sleeping bag out there for me to lie on
Ahhh...this is nice and cool! HEY WAIT A MINUTE......what is she dragging out here now????
Whaaaaaat is this farkakte thing???

A huge bowl to drink from???

A baby pool??? For ME???

I'm thinking NO!

Mom PICKED ME UP and plunked me down in the water. I stood there for a minute and just glared at her ( picture) and then walked out and then back to my nice warm spot on the deck to dry off.
I'm NOT a fan of the baby pool!

Happy Saturday everyone!

***MOM'S NOTE*** Ok...before people start calling the ASPCA on me...I'm NOT leaving Salinger outside all day! He has a doggie door and free run of the house and comes and goes as he likes, and just prefers to lie out in the sun and then comes in when he's had enough. We did this little pool experiment around 10 am when it wasn't as hot outside.

At least you get to go outside. My poor George can't go out unless it's below 85, and then only for a few minutes. Thursday night 1/2 of his trachea collapsed;-(

Stay cool - do you hear me?

Sounds like Florida, do you have the terrible humidity? The heat index always raises it about 10 degrees higher than what they say. I keep our AC on 80 just so I can pay the electric bill. Our rates are very high! You really should give the pool another try, looks so cool and inviting!

Mom says we's getting a baby pool in a few weeks when we gets our yard. I thinks I's not gonna like it either.

Salinger, I gots the package you and your Mom sent me and I LOVES it. That was really nice of you to put something in it for the kitty. Mom says she LOVES her shirt too :-)

Pearl said...

Hey Salinger! Momma was thinkin' of getting me a kiddie pool too.. she was wondering if I would love it or hate it. After seeing this, I will tell her no thanks. Sounds a lot like an outdoor BATH to me!

Your mama was very thoughtful in getting you a little pool to cool off. I have seen pics of pugs having fun in pools., but I am not sure what I would do. I prefer to lay in the sun a little to get warm then I head for the shade.
Hope you stay cool.

Yeah, Sal, buddy....I don't know why our moms get so flipped out over us enjoyin' a little sun. I mean, what do they think our ancestors did? 'Course, OUR ancestors were pretty sissified, but a regular dog got by just fine I tell ya what!

Hey Sal,
I'm a big fan of laying in the sunshine myself. When I get hot, Mama gives me chunks of frozen bananas! Tell your mom, they are awesome!

We would never think you were a bad mom. Salinger is like me. I like to sit in the sun and when I get hot, I come in. I wouldn't like the pool, but Lucky would.
Can we have some of your heat and sunshine? I will trade you some rain for it.

Salinger trust us it's HOT. Mom has been walking us outside during the day! So cruel.

Mom finally saw The Hangover and also has no idea where the chicken came from!

Nevis said...

I've been contemplating getting a baby pool for the puggies....maybe they wouldn't like it too?? Hmm...Does Salinger like the ocean/pool?

The Great Rock Eater said...

Oh Salinger, I would love to have a doggie door AND a pool!!! I love going to the Posse's house so I can hang by the pool. It's the best way to keep cool!

Haha Gus and Indy beg to go out side and lay in the sun but I have to watch them. So when I get hot or bored, in we all go. Indy is not impressed with that! lol Neither of them like the pool we have.
