Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Oh Asta, We feel for you and your mum and dad. I don't like big heat either - neither does my ma. We here across the pond are "enjoying" cold weather - but we don't get cold enough for snow where I am. The rain has stopped for now - but looking at the sky I think it might rain before tonight. It's OK - because dad and I have finished my walk for today!

Try and cheer up..... Tail Wuggles, Rubie. xox

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

That's way too hot!! Keep cool sissy. We are sorry that you couldn't go on your holiday.

Wonder how our cousin cope with the baby in that heat. They live in a small, old house in upstate NY. They have no A/C either.

Sally said...

Oh, Asta,
it`s not good, stay cool.
Summer is almost over.

Happy weekend.

Nice woooh

Dexter said...

Just one more day Miss Asta and then it will feel cooler, I promise.


Molly the Airedale said...

This has been one hot week and the heat is not quite over yet, Asta! booooooooooooooooo

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~ said...

Oh Asta darling....we are so sad that you can not go to the big briney and jump right in to cool yourself off. it is a most miserable summer for so many in the country right now. Unheard of misery for sure in the concret jungles....how I wish you could come and visit with me out here in the desert of the evergreen state. We are having the coolest summer since mommy moved here from Germany over 20 years ago! We are in heaven since we hate hot weather!!! God is good to us and we hope he sends you cool off blessings real soon...your devoted friend Miss Peach

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hello Miss Asta, I wish I could send you some of our cold weather. I don't like going outside for a wee when there is frost on the grass. Maybe a glass of nice cool water with some ice cubes would help. No worries, and love, Stella

Gus said...

Sweeti: Muzzer says I can bring the gussiemobile to pick you up, and we can spend the rest of the weekend in the big tub here. She will bring dog food as needed.


♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

You are making the right choice, Asta. This heat is not something to fool around with. Better to be safe and stay cool. A little pug lost her life here because she was outside too long in our heat. We only get to go out for a few minutes at a time because of our thick coats and this terrible heat.

We hope you can find some other fun ways to keep Mom and Dad entertained for the weekend. And we hope it gets a lot cooler everywhere soon.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Scooter said...

Hey Asta!
Wow, I'm sorry you missed your trip, but I think you're better off. It's to hot to be a tourist! Your shower idea is perfect...this is the only time a bath is really worth it! BOL
Sending healing vibes to your peeps and cool thoughts to everyone!

Amber DaWeenie said...

So sorry to hear bout da big plans fallin' apart... :o(

Butt, you can come and see us. It's a lot cooler here in da Sunshine State.

Persephone and Buster said...

Asta, we think it's time to find some serious coolness.

Plainly that's not in Connecticut--it was 106 here on Friday.

Maybe...let's see...Greenland!? How about the Orkneys?

Time to book passage on a slow boat to Stockholm and blow the big city!

We're stuck at home, too. It's not pretty.

Hope everyone feels better soon!

Buster, Bailey & Sephie

Bocci said...

We know what you mean, Asta. We're all a bit sick here, too. Even going out for a short walk is exhausting.
Here's to cooler weather soon!

Anonymous said...

Hang in there Asta this dang HOT has GOT to cool down soon!

Daisy said...

Oh, I'm sorry, Asta! Maybe you can still do something fun this weekend like running through some sprinklers.

Poor Asta, and poor Mommi and Daddi too :(

We're over the but we are warm - but not too warm. It was 30ish yesterday (we do Cs not Fs) but cooler today and we are getting a sea breeze too. So, nice really. Wish you could all hop over and enjoy our summer weather.

WFT Nobby said...

Oh dear Asta I am so sorry to read that your plans to escape the horrid heat in the city have gone awry and that Mommi and Daddi are suffering too. If only you were all here with me in Aberdeen (12ºC and 'Scotch mist' this afternoon).
Toodle pip!
PS Gail says she now knows how you all feel, as due to a broken down plane she had to fly back from Newfoundland through Toronto on Saturday, where it was 35ºC.

Remington said...

Stay cool, my friend!

White Dog Blog said...

We hope Mommi and Daddi are feeling better and that your weather has got tamer! Under those conditions there is nothing else to do but to wear as little as possible, only come out after dark, and drink lots of icy cold things...and nap away the heat! Momma says the heat is awful but she remembers humidity from growing up in Chicago and it just makes things so much worse. You are always welcome to visit the desert with its cool nights and siesta afternoons...we love company!

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

Oh Asta, it is so hot everywhere this year. We only get to go outside when when gets up in the morning at 5am and when it gets dark at night. Mommym says thank goodness know how ro use pee pads.

Even at night it doesn't get below 80. Will uit ever stop?

Ms. Blue is the swimmer in the family, she goes swimming with my momm for a long time and loves it.. theBUSTER and me go in the canoe.
