Fur coats and hot weather don't mix!

We got up nice and early yesterday to go for a walk at the lake before it got too hot but when you're a walking shag pile carpet anything above 50 degrees is hot!! Not that I was going to let that stop me, a good walk and sniffing marathon is worth being warm for. For some reason today I was quite fascinated by the white line on the road and kept wondering what it was there for. Did it lead to the pet store or the way home - what was at the end of it and where was the end of it? Next I had to investigate these most interesting rocks. I could smell cooked fish, meat and something sweet - mom says they were marshmallows. I think mom should have a pile a of rocks like this in our kitchen to cook on then I could see what was going on and enjoy all those yummy smells. For some reason mom doesn't think that is a very good idea.

We walked about half way around the lake and then both mom and dad were getting too hot so we headed back. Of coarse I could of walked right around the lake and I was only walking slowly because mom and dad were and I was just resting waiting for them to catch up. I must admit it was nice to rest in the cool shade though. When we got back to the car mom got me a big bowl of water which I slurped down, it was nice and cool and then mom turned the air conditioner on full and I flopped down on the back seat and snoozed all the way home - dreaming of steak with marshmallows on it!!! Remember guys and gals - if you are going anywhere with your moms and dads in this hot weather - MAKE SURE they put a couple of bottles of water in the car for you.


  1. That does sound hot! Glad you had a nice walk - your mum certainly thought of everything with the water and the air conditioning.
    We liked the dream about the steak but we have never tasted marshmallows!

  2. You have that huge fur coat to wear all summer long, Reilly! Make sure you drink lots of water and stay as cool as you possibly can!

    Love ya lots

  3. I know exactly what you mean, Reilly! These fur coats are way too hot for summertime! But I never say no to a good walk!

  4. Good advice Reilly! About the water AND about the rocks in the kitchen! :)

  5. What a great walk, even it was very hot :o)


  6. Nothing like some nice cold water after being in the heat. We have hot and humid weather in the Keys.

    We didn't go to the park today. But we did take a long walk under over cast clouds and a slow steady rain.
