So hot

It is still so hot here - over 6 weeks and non stop 90+ degree heat. Yesterday it reached 100 but with the humidity felt like 110 and it's the same today. We pups are having to do the dash, pee and run back in the house routine. Denny cried a little last night and had us laughing like crazy - he makes the funniest noises - like he is rolling his tongue and sort of gurgling and howling or maybe yodeling all at the same time. We will have to try and catch it on video. He is eating well - has a great appetite and drinking plenty and got to gnaw on a bone for a little this morning. His teeth are so tiny he really couldn't do much. Sorry no photo's today, it's just too hot to take any outside.

In other news, it was my Dads birthday on Friday (we share the same birthday month). Poor Dad has come in contact with something he is allergic too and both his eyes were swollen and red - he looked like a funny panda bear :) It seems to be settling down but Mom has told him he has to stay out of the garden (he was doing some weeding). We think it was one of the weeds he touched - maybe something related to poison ivy - which my Dad is highly allergic too and which causes the same problems with his eyes. I told him I would be his seeing eye dog if he needed my to be and that I could lead him to all the important things - like the cabinet my food is in, the shelf where my treats are and the box we keep my toys in.

Hope you are all having a wonderful long weekend and for all of you in the hot zone (we know many parts of the country are) keep cool okay and not to much sun!

Boy, I wish I could send you some of our weather. We have all our windows open...perfect 72 degrees. I'm sure we'll get a heat wave soon.

Looking forward to seeing more photos of Denny!

Hope Dad's eyes improve soon - that must be so uncomfortable. And we bet you and Denny are having lots and lots of fun together.
