Early Morning Haze

The beautiful cool spell we had last week has sadly left us and we are back in the 90's again so that means very early walkies. We could tell it is going to be a hot one today because of the haze even at 6.00 am but it is the best time to go walkies for us as there is hardly anyone ever there (maybe because MY park doesn't technically open until 7.00 am but it is MY park after all so those rules don't apply to ME).

Since my birthday I have been feeling quite a bit better and Mom thinks the ramp in and out of  MY car is really helping a lot and plus my weekly cold laser treatments and the medicines I take. I must admit I was feeling pretty happy this morning or maybe it was just those cookies Mom had in her hand. We love to have breakfast at the park when it is cool and quiet. Mom says the one thing that would make it totally perfect would be if we had Loons (the birds types) living there - she loves their eerie calls. Sadly the only loons we see are those silly jogger types who have their music on so loud we are surprised their heads don't explode. Mom wonders if they realize how much damage they are doing to their ears.


  1. My mom can't take the heat but the humidity is what is the worst.
    You look very happy Reilly.

  2. aaww - I'm glad you are feeling better my friends. I'm sure the ramp does help. Ya'll take such beautiful pictures - <3 them! XOXO - Bacon

  3. Stay cool you 2. Glad you are getting your walkies, even if you have to get out the door EARLY!

  4. Breakfast in the park? Lucky dudes. We have keep fitters, cyclists, shrunken people and all sorts invading our park as the weather is good. They should all be banned as it is MY park. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. It has been super humid here lately so I have been walking really early too. It is nice that no one is really out and about so early...and for you that means getting YOUR park all to yourself!

  6. We are glad to hear the ramp us helping you out. It's suppose to be super dooper hot here over the weekend

  7. Mom says sometimes it would be so nice if everyone would just put away all the TECH stuff when we go on walks also, they miss out on the show that Mother Nature gives us for free.
    Stay Cool.

  8. Of course you can make the rules for YOUR park! It is hot here too but our humidity is very low. We are glad you are feeling better!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  9. I'm glad you're feeling better Reilly! I love walking in the early, early morning best of all. And I don't know how people run with music in their ears. They're missing out on all the beautiful sounds of nature (and aren't they nervous someone will sneak up behind them).

    Stay cool boys!

  10. your lake looks hazy for sure. glad you is feeling good Reilly. stay cool ...

  11. I'm glad it is at least cool enough in the morning for you to take a walk! I bet the ramp is really helping you out!!

  12. OF COURSE you should be allowed in YOUR park at whatever time of day suits you best. Accompanied by only the right sort of loons.
    Toodle pip!

  13. Oh Reilly, you look VERY happy this morning, I must say!!
    You have a little twinkle in your eye!! (or, that could be my margarita haze.....)
    I thinks those peeps that run with things in their ears are CRAZY too!
    Ma has this phobia that some serial killer is gonna jump out and attack her and she wouldn't be able to her him comin' ~ so no earbuds..ever!!
    (personally, I thinks she needs to stop watchin' Discovery ID...)
    Ruby ♥

  14. We walk early or not at all. Glad you both got out!

    Monty and Harlow

  15. OF COURSE you can make your OWN Rules fur YOUR PARK.
    You gotta go out and about when it is COOL and SAFE fur you to do it.
    THAT is WONDERFUL that your BIRFDAY RAMP is Helping you to move and feel better!!! It was a PAWfect gift.

    TRY to stay Cool. And remember that you don't have to SHOVEL the HEAT...like you did the ICE and SLEET. Just sayin.

  16. Wow…. you look soooooo happy Reilly. Your sidekick looks pretty happy too.
    Have a great day boys!

  17. Yes, you can see the haze on the lake. So happy you are feeling better.

  18. You're looking mighty chipper Mr. R! Katie is sleeping on top of the air conditioning vents up here. You know how that is.

  19. your "hots" came our way for one day, wish they would leave

  20. One day, they'll realise their ears don't work....

    Hey, if you want to walk in YOUR park at 5 a.m. Go ahead. Anyway, what Ranger is going to be around then...

  21. Reilly I can tell by your happy face that you are feeling wonderful! So glad you got to enjoy your park, it got yucky here too finally so I only get a short walk, no park. Love Dolly

  22. Glad ya enjoyed your walk! I gotta do mine in da morning too.

  23. Crikey Reilly that happy face tells me you are feeling better. Good to hear. How's Momma? Is she doing alright too? No more bad tummy turns?? I hope not!!

  24. The ramps we have at home have helped us alot - and after mom showed dad your ramp he is working on one to help us get in and out of the wheelie house
    Mr bailey, Hazel & Greta

  25. I'm so glad that you are feeling better. You two are so gorgeous that I'm surprised the joggers don't trip and fall from looking at y'all. I'm pretty sure that I would!

  26. We've had some real hot days lately too. We much prefer the cool days.

  27. We wish you had loons too, Reilly! Our mom loves their eerie call just as much as your mom does.

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  28. Loons are great, but even though they are the state bird here, we rarely see them. I think you have to go up north to find many of them.

  29. The heat is nasty when you want a wlk..so glad you had some cool walkies ..and I agree we will soon have a whole generation of hearing impaired ! great pictures guys looking wonderful :0 hugs Fozziemum xx

  30. You guys are very lucky to have a Mom that gets up so early. Beckett and Keltic aren't so fortunate. I leave for work at 6am so we don't a get an early morning walk and lately due to the heat we wait until after supper then have playtime in the backyard.

  31. That must have been a lovely walk, you both look so very happy!!
    Dory, Arty, Jakey & Bilbo

  32. Sounds like the perfect morning to us.
