Everyone here is so excited about the wonderful summer-like weather. Everyone but me, I think. This 80 degree stuff just isn’t my thing. I can’t go for walks with Atticus because I’m over-heated by the time we’re out of the yard.
I could get up early when it’s cool (relatively speaking), but how will I get my beauty rest if I don’t sleep until almost noon? Quite the quandry, eh? So, what’s this one cool griff to do? Because I can tell you, I don’t feel so cool these days. I’m pretty hot, but not in a “cool” way…
And the lap sitting time has diminished, not in quality, but quantity. Mom is out riding her bike once a day- on my time! Working with the horses- on my time! Cleaning up the winter stuff from the flower beds- you guessed it- ON MY TIME!
It’s just too much for me. So I take solice in the fact that I can SWIM whenever I want. You see, Atti has this drinking bowl big enough for, well, Atti. Every time I drink out of it, I walk in one side, stand in the dish full of water, and drink. When I’m finished, I just walk right out the other side. That’ll cool ya off! I just love it!!
I also wrangle back the attention I’m lacking from less lap sitting when Mom has to dry me off with the big towel. So I guess early spring has some up sides to it. I hope Mom has lots of big towels. I’m going to be drinking a LOT of water this spring and summer!!
