Happy National Dog Day!

In honor of all our canine friends out there...

Happy National Dog Day! 

We celebrated, Lilly and I, this afternoon at the park. 

"It's about TIME we got out of that house, Mom!"

It's been so hot the last five days, that Lilly has only been outside for 
short breaks. 

She was really glad to get in the car just to go anywhere!

When we get there, we have to carefully read the Pee Mail. 


And again.

Sometimes, it's slow going around the park.

But we manage, don't we, Lil?

Skies were blue, though it was still hot.

Though the park is still green...

The Basehor community garden plot has burned up in the heat. 
Someone dumped a load of mulch right on the fence!

Someone was watching us as we finished up our walk. 

And on the way home, these two friends were lazing in the sun 

There were two other horses, a bay and a buckskin in the pasture as of a week ago, but I have not seen them now for 7 or 8 days.  

It continues hot here, but the humidity must be less today, 
because it was not oppresive out. 

I hope all our canine friends are having a wonderful
National Dog Day. 

Treat your pup today!

(and thanks to everyone for the wonderful birthday 
wishes I was swamped with yesterday!) 


  1. I guess I missed your birthday but would still like to say HAPPY Birthday! Glad you were able to get out. The heat has been bad here and I've stayed in a lot.
