Beating The Heat

It is SO hot here.

It was 87F/31C at my house yesterday.

The rest of the week is expected to be hotter.

Fred and I have approximately one more week until his final parvo shot …

And all the newfound (Newfoundland?) freedom we will BOTH have then.

Since I can’t, yet, take Fred to the beach to escape the hot weather,

I’ve had to come up with other ways to keep him cool.

First of all, of course, the a/c is running in the house.

He can get cool anytime he likes by hanging out indoors.

But, Fred loves being outside a lot of the time.

I let him go in our big/real swimming pool once or twice a day when it’s hot like this.

He also has his little wading pool he can traipse in and out of whenever he wants.

I toss his “bumper” in it for him.

He thinks it’s great (cool) fun to retrieve it.

Can ¬†you tell how big he’s getting by the above photo?

He’s growing so fast … it’s astounding to watch.

He’s looking pretty messy too since he’s getting in and out of water so much.

(And then rolling in dirt and leaves!)

Fred will get a, much needed, bath over the weekend.
