Louise, here. It is getting hot and humid outside. Can’t we just sit in the grass instead of walking on the hot pavement? Why does Mom not understand that dogs are not meant to be outside on days like this! Can we move somewhere that the weather is always nice, like California? We heard that you never have to cancel anything in California because the weather is always beautiful. But then again, we also heard the ground shakes sometimes and there are drought and fires and mudslides. I guess a few humid weeks in the Mid-Atlantic may not be so bad after all.
Stay cool, Peeps!
Remind your humans that if the street is too hot for their hand, it is too hot for your paws.
Storm season brings with it many nights of stressed-out dogs and no sleep for me. I am trying a new thing by creating a tent that Louise and Sofie can hide under or just throwing a blanket over Sofie. Louise will stay under a lean-to as long as I am with her, but Sofie is just too freaked to deal with it. The blanket over her, nose exposed, while I cuddle her tight seems to soothe a little, but not much works. The thunder vest has been worthless for many years. I tried Xanax but the storms either come earlier or later than expected, so dosing is hard. It doesn’t stop them from getting upset, but they do seem to fall asleep earlier.
Sofie has decided that she needs to be up on my bed and chew on my pillows to protect me, I guess, from the noise.
Noise is our enemy at the Zoo. I’m glad that most fireworks displays were canceled this year (I hate the noise too). But that won’t stop my neighbors from doing their loud and noisy things from now until August.
September seemed like a very Cat month in pictures.
It was very hot most of the month and it was the driest September on record. Seems like Maryland is turning into Florida. Still in the 90’s even now in October. Maybe I will put the dogs in bikinis for Halloween.
A storm was coming, as is usual in August. K8 snapped a picture of all 3 dogs hoping that I could save them from the impending booms. It is rare that you get a shot of me with all of them. I love my goofballs.
