Happy Girl

She was probably looking at the tiny squirrel in our neighborhood that keeps climbing just out of her reach on the tree trunks. Now every time we go outside, Minnie sits at the bottom of the trees, looking up like she might be able to catch it. Or play with it. You know how much Minnie likes other animals :)

I was so happy we could get outside for a quick photo shoot today. And quick means less than five minutes in this 100+ degree heat. It's brutal out. Too hot to do much more than lay on the couch inside. We needed to get outside to do something, even if it was quick. I wanted to post this picture of a smiley Minnie because I picked the more serious picture of her for my photo blog today. She definitely shows lots of different emotions ... that's one of my favorite things about her!

Hope you are all staying cool ... people AND animals. Don't leave your pets out in this extreme heat. Just think about how hot you are and then imagine wearing a fur coat every time you went outside. Now I've got to get back to my DVR. The Closer and Rizzoli & Isles are waiting for me.

Pin It!

Ugh, nothing drives me crazier than seeing poor pups out sweating their rears off in the heat. I don't care if they have a dog house as I highly doubt the owners paid for air conditioning to be installed for them. Shade only does so much people!

There was a news report last week about a woman that let her 2 pugs outside once the yard was completely shaded. AND HOUR LATER, she called them in & one had died in the heat :( If it's still 95+ degrees when the sun is down, that means it's too hot in the shade for dogs. So sad.
