We're Hot Dogs!

Take that any way you want.  Hot or hawt...

But it has been unseasonably hot here...

"Hi.  We're 'doodles and we're hot."
Actually, it was super hot on Friday.  After work, Mom and Dad went on a bicycle ride, and when they came home, they were surprised to discover that the garage door opener didn't work.  Upon further inspection, they discovered there was no power.  After determining that we weren't responsible (I swear we didn't overload the outlets trying to crank up the air conditioner!), Mom and Dad went on the power company's website where they helpfully informed Mom and Dad that the power outage was due to "a power interruption."  Uh, no kidding.  Anyway, the power was off for almost 5 hours, and given that it was 97 in Park City (we don't EVER get that hot... well, hardly ever), we were roasting.  No air conditioning, no fans, not even much of a breeze.  Mom spent a lot of time encouraging us to lie down on the tiles to stay cool.  We were quite happy when the power came back on just before 9pm.

It has actually been quite warm all week, but we haven't let that interrupt our biteying and frisbee time.

We're all about Sisterly Love!

Mmmm.  Abby's ears taste like chicken!  Heehee!

Abby, you may outweigh me by 15 lbs, but I've still got the psychological advantage!
Yep.  Mad frisbee skills!  I has 'em!  Heehee!

There are actually fewer bitey-face and frisbee photos than usual because, well, it's been so hot that when we go out with Mom when she comes home from work, we prefer to hide in the shade.

"Move over.  My tail is still in the sun!"
Since Abby isn't super active in the heat, and she's got her therapy dog evaluation coming up in less than 2 weeks, Mom has been taking Abby to Home Depot, so they can work on being less doofus-y in public.  I'm not sure it's working... 

Look!  You can get a mirror with a goofadoodle in it for under $40!

Yuh.  She's so NOT being a doofus here.

Or here.  Especially since Mom was trying to make a statement with the caution tape...

Mom saw this and immediately thought of Granny, who is in a constant battle against her squirrels.  Mom was baffled, so I'm not sure what that means...  Heehee!

Not quite sure what Mom was trying to photograph here.  Like I said, it's a big request to ask both Mom and Abby to not be doofuses at the same time.

"Hey Mom!  I think this super cool washer-dryer set will even fold the clean laundry for you.  You totally need this!"

"And while we're appliance shopping, how about a new range?  I bet these cook doggie birthday cakes in half the time!"

"Yep.  It's still hot out!"

While Mom and Abby are having good times at Home Depot, I get to hang out with Dad.

"Hi Dad!"
Oh, and in one final bit of excitement, when Mom broke out the vacuum cleaner today, Abby and I decided to hop in Air Fiona and get as far away from Vacula as possible - we found ourselves near the Hagerstown (Maryland) airport.  Khyra's Mom was able to get a photo of us!

You might have to biggify that one - we still haven't gotten our Dreamliner yet, so we're still flying an older (and smaller) fleet...  Heehee!

It's SO hot here, too! We got to go swimming early, then spent the day laying on the tile floors. About 4 the gross cloud cover broke up and a breeze started. We're pouncing around, woofin' and playing a little senior bitey face. Life is returning to good :-)

It's been hot here, but not as bad as where you are. We love playing bitey face too.

Hey! That's our washer/dryer you are standing beside! And if you think your mom is a doofus... well, our mom still goes into the laundry room just to look at the washer and dryer AND we've had them for four years!

Hi You Two, glad to see you can even play bitey face in this hot weather. Me, I am happy to hang around under the cooler all day.
It is record breaking heat down here too. We were hoping it was cooler up your way, but it sounds just as hot.
Time for a pool.
love Bert

It's hot alright! Where is your pool? At least you got to go shopping in the AC. Wish mom would break our vacuum monster

We've actually been having cooler than normal temps here and they boys are enjoying it as much as they can because they know it won't last!

Hope you can beat the heat!

We are just so glad that we found your bloggy! We are sweating like crazy here too. Usually we can go to Park City for a break but the whole state is burning up! We hope the Therapy Dog test goes well. We usually go to Lowes to practice. Do you know the dog on FB that does therapy work at (I think) Primary Children's? (I think she is Annie Doodle.) Have a wonderful day!

Your Pals,

Murphy & Stanley

Ha! I remember once when we came home from daycare and I was starving and momma just kept hitting the stupid garage clicker over and over and it took FOREVER for her to figure out the power was off. Foolishness.

Stay cool and bouncy.


P.S. That washer / dryer looks awesome.

OMD, that is terrible hot and no A/C is just not right :( Abbs, you are too stinkin' cute at the Home Depot. I've never met a doggy at my Home Depot and think that needs to change. Have a happy 4th, hot dogs!!
