Water-y Goodness

Damn, it's hot here.  This humidity thing is kicking my butt.  This summer is my first real, full summer full 'o humidity and honestly, I don't like it much.  Never thought I'd say it, but thank goodness for my aire conditioner, my own personal fans in each room, and a shady, cool spot in the grass.
We do try to explore a lot - you know, taking side streets, walking on both sides of the street, different routes back and forth to my parks.  And so we've seen a lot of interesting things.  But sometimes we miss something - something so very important and amazing that we wonder if we actually have eyes.

This dog and horse water fountain is right outside of Washington Square park.  We come here every single day.  And until today we NEVER EVEN SAW IT.

I wish I could say that it was hidden, out of sight, or disguised as something else, but no.  It's right out in the open and both mama and I didn't see it.  And it's DELISH...

Now that I know it's here we will visit on a regular basis.  And it's good to know that when my personal stash of water runs out during a long walkie (mama always carries a bottle of water for me on every walkie) that there is cold, tasty water available for me.  Thanks again, Philadelphia!

Wow, what a great idea! And I don't think it's odd that you missed it, it sounds like something that we would do too.

The humidity can be pretty tough to take, Bogie. Gotta keep a low profile in this heat!
