Hot, Hot, Hot

The heat has arrived.  Forecast for the weekend is 104-105.  I'm usually OK up to about 100 degrees...anything over that is just too smokin' hot.

Snuffy (aka Cuji) knows what to do when the heat is on.  Hit the pool.

Dive right in, don't be afraid!  Actually, he's diving for his rock in this picture.  He has an obsession with rocks and is usually never without one.  Good thing we live on the side of a mountain, there's never a shortage.

Tomorrow we are planning to take Cuji and Angel down to Patagonia Lake.  For those of you in areas where there are "real" lakes, Patagonia is more like the pond you used to ice skate on when you were a kid.  But hey, it's water, and the dogs will love it.  Snuffy will spend all of his time swimming around and Angel will dip her front feet in and that's about it.  I might even dip my toes in... 

Happy Friday and Stay Cool!

Looks like a great idea! I think I just may invest in a kiddie pool this very week!

P.S. I passed your blog address onto a friend of mine who fosters/rescues bunnies. Hope you don't mind.

Too funny...my post today was the exact same thing! Some dogs really love the water...some do not! Stay cool!

Sounds like a grand plan. I believe I would dip more than my toes.

Kiddie pools are lifesavers in the summer AND fun too! Spring just forgot us and we went straight to 90's with 70 dewpoint. UGH. We were spoiled last summer. Bridget 105 would do me in!

That heat would kill me. It got up to 26 (F79) here on Friday and that nearly did me in!

Fortunately now it's back in the high teens and that's just right for a snow baby like me :).
