I thought this picture was precious. There have been times I wish I could get away with doing the same thing!
I realize not everyone who reads this is in the midst of summer. I live in the northwest and though we get snow in the winter, our summer days can get quite warm, lately they have been in the mid 90s. I am more of a mid 70s girl myself. We have had slight humidity which gives you that need-another-shower feeling, but nothing like the suffocating humidity the east coast gets.
How do you survive the dog days of summer?

Temperatures are going to be in the 100s by tomorrow again. I so want to copy this brilliant fellow!
Yikes, I feel like I am suffocating in those temperatures! At times like that, a kids wading pool looks inviting also.
Our weather in South Australia, is Arctic right now, so I felt a little chilly at the sight of all that ice. Very amusing though.
That’s right, it would be winter in South Australia. How much snow do you get?
We don’t get snow in much of Australia at all, only the mountains in New South Wales. Feels like it’s going to snow though!
Thank goodness you don’t have to worry about driving in it!
🙂 What a great pic! Dogs with flattened snouts get overheated easily and I’ve had to resort to that before with my Boston terrier.
Really, your dog was willing to lay in the ice?
Yeah. They get overheated easily. I’ve had to resort to dunking her in water and even rolling a can of cold soda over her stomach when it happens. Luckily for her I’ve learned not to take her out for too long in the heat. When I first got her, though, I was accustomed to dogs with longer snouts and didn’t realize how dangerous it could be for her. I’m a better mommy now!
Wow! I suppose the short snout doesn’t allow for cooler and healthy air flow. I bet she appreciates such a caring mom!
No it doesn’t and it’s pretty dangerous, Elizabeth. 10 extra minutes outside can be scary. Thank God I wised up to the danger. She deserves better, actually 🙂
We have had a few showery days now so it’s been a bit cooler, those mid 70s you like, handsome dog.
I love the way he crashed out in the midst of the ice!
