Heat Wave

This has been a very hot summer. Lately it's been so hot that if I try to go for too long of a walk I start to slow down in the middle of it... I get so hot and tired that sometimes I even lay down in the grass before the walk is over!

What? I just needed a short break for belly rubs!

I think maybe it should only be this hot on one day of the year, and that day is the 4th of July!

Everyone in my family loves to celebrate the 4th of July together. It's the perfect day for it to be hot outside, because we can go swimming and eat all the best hot weather foods, like fruit and hamburgers and ice cream. I love to eat all of those things! Did you know they make ice cream for doggies? And, well, you already know how much I love swimming...

There's just one thing I'd like to change about the 4th of July -

Can we get rid of fireworks?

I don't know about you, but I don't like all of the noise that fireworks make. It's too sudden and it doesn't make any sense to me, so I bark and howl like my own personal alarm system. Then I have to put on my Thundershirt - it's designed specially to help me feel calm. I don't mind snuggling up with my momma and wearing my Thundershirt.

But, um...

How do I say this politely?...

I kind of think this shirt makes my butt look big!

So let's just get rid of fireworks, okay? Maybe we can come up with a different night-time hot weather holiday tradition, like chasing lightning bugs, or eating peanut butter sundaes. In the meantime, let's focus on my good side -
