This hot weather is terrible and we can only imagine what it would be like with no air conditioning - we have hardly moved away from ours for the last three weeks it has been so hot

Rocky Creek Scotties and Rocky Creek Ramblings said...

We're beginning to think we should all go for a real field trip and visit Bertie - as we are sweltering here in the mountains of Virginia too!! And eating a lot of wallymelon - that's the upside of it all.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Oh, no! This heat is worldwide? That must be why Jan has been eating a lot of watermelon at the computer. It's a sauna in here. So do your best to stay cool. Purrs and pawhugs.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh,Asta....I leave for a few (well, maybe more) days to visit you in the Pest and all um heck breaks loose at home. We had a storm here early am on July 4th...(yes,fireworks all evening and then a wicked thunderstorm: the Lacie was not pleased. So now Mumsie had the E LEK TRISH AN out today and found out we got um fried. Lotsa stuff...and we don't have any air conditioning either...sheesch. At least it's better than our neighbor's house...their chimney got blown up by the storm...bricks flew everywhere. Mumsie slept through the whole thing 'cept when I demanded to be rocked.

Who's bloggie has the Paw Olympics? Let us know....or is it like virtual? Is there a Schlag Eating sport?

Hi Asta
That wallymellon- will have lots of energy and vitimins in it- so you are doing a good job staying in shape.
I hope some cool weather comes to you soon.

White Dog Blog said...

It is 68 degrees F tonight in Albuquerque...YES 68!!! We are all on the deck worshipping the wind and cooler temps that the storm this afternoon blew in!

We will focus on sending you some of this delightful weather (so unusual for the desert in July).Keep the windows open and expect this lighter than air coolness to arrive in the next 48 hours! Take a deep sniff, it comes perfumed with desert sage after the rain! Stay cool, dear friends!

Ziggy Stardust said...

Asta, it is pretty hot here in Michigan also. I haven't been out much, but I am spoiled cause we have air conditioning. I wish you could be cooler, I hope it is better soon. I love wallymelon and I get it pretty often too. It is nice and refreshing and its like getting a drink and a treat all in one. Take it easy my sweet pal and keep cool.

Martha said...

Oh Asta, we know some like it hot, but not us dogs!
We were so pleased to see that you have a fan to help keep you cool.
No air conditioning!! It must be awful for you.
It is true we would like some hot weather but we understand it can make you feel pretty miserable.
Good work in keeping up your training, the watermelon looks yummy. Stay cool.

Oh dear Asta, we were rather hoping that is was cooling down a bit for you and your pawrents.

Would you be so kind as to package a little warmth and send it here by first class mail. Apparently we are having our furs trimmed at the weekend and with all this rain and cool temperatures we may start to shiver.

Pawsonally we think somebody moved the world around while we were sleeping one night. Wished they would move it back again so we can have summertime.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Oh poor Asta, if only we could send you some of our cool weather. We're sorry you are suffering like this. Right, we are going outside to blow some of our cool air over to you in Boo da Pest. Hang on, back in a sec ........... There you go. Pop your head outside and see if you can feel it coming. Hope it reaches you soon. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Oh Miss Asta, it has been SO HOT here, too. It was even hot in northern Wisconsin - it never gets hot there. My assistant bought be a cooling vest which really works wonders. I wore it almost all of last week.

Hope things cool off for your soon.

Your pal, Pip

Poor Asta and family, We are sorry the heat is so HOT and hard to be in. We haven't had many warm days but the last couple days has been pretty warm. It's like Summer is finally here. We think WallyMelon is very satisfying and cooling on hot days.

We want some of that watermelon, Asta...but I pawsonally find that CAKE, FROSTING AND SCHLAG are my best foods for PAWLYMPIC training....definitely build mass...
