Dog days of summer

Here it is. The post I never thought I’d write: A formal complaint about the heat.*

Oh, the irony.

Gidget isn’t fairing well in the scorching temperatures either. Normally showcasing energy that could be suitable for a Red Bull campaign, she has taken on a new role as the Shreveport Sloth.

Our usual post-walk routine goes something like this:

1. Pant heavily inside the doorway for 10 minutes.

2. Guzzle a gallon of water and immediately collapse on the floor. More panting.

3. Eventually make your way to a  more comfortable location for a nap to recover from heat exhaustion.

Repeat as necessary.

Notice I said “our” routine.

*You thought I was going to say “A post about my dog,” right? Well, you were also correct.
