Way. Too. Hot.

Yes there are a myriad of excuses for not updating my blog. And mama has told me most of them. The overwhelming one, and the one that I have no choice but to agree with her on, is that we've been in the midst of an oppressive heatwave this past week. No kidding, 105 - 110 degrees, and today it's a "mild" 95.

Not that this means that I want to stay indoors - oh no - I still want to go for a nice long walk and Pearl District stick hunt.

Many stops for cold, tasty beverages. Gotta stay hydrated.

And quick on the toes - that concrete gets HOT!

Be careful in that terrible heat!
You need to find a nice cool fountain to soak in!
Hope the weather pattern changes soon for you folks who aren't accustomed to such excessive heat.
Glad to see Bogart is still doing his part and picking up the sticks...
Be Safe,

That is way too hot, dude. Good thing you dales are so springy so your feet don't ever touch the hot pavement for long.

Somedoggie has to pick up all those sticks.

Holy cow, it's really hot in Portland! It's gotten hot over here in N.Idaho too and of course we both insist on going outside to play. Momma has to deal with it.
