It’s Summer in The Netherlands officially today. And I can tell you, I’m not a fan. It’s too hot inside, so I go from my bed to the floor in the hallway to the spot under mommy’s legs, but nothing cools me down.Outside is too hot too. The pavement is hot, the sun is baking me when we walk to the elevator. So no, there’s nothing about Summer I like!
Well, come to think of it, there is one thing; ice! Mommy has bought these delicious, cold treats that taste like pears. I love them! And today we went to see Granny Hennie after a long time cause mommy had a throat inflammation and Granny has something even better; ice cream!Granny Hennie only gives Poppy the crust, but mommy let me lick some of that delicious goodness.When most of the heat had disappeared, we went on a small walk. First a stop at the salad bar. A girl’s gotta watch her figure.And as a surprise we ran into Poppy’s friends, two Westies. That was fun!As I hadn’t had my dinner yet, it was time to go home after our walk. But Granny and Poppy will be coming over on Friday to watch a movie at our house, so I’m glad I don’t have to wait that long again to see them.
Enjoy your Summer and remember to look after your four legged friends. Don’t take us on long walks or exercise with us during the hot hours of the day. Please make sure we don’t have to walk on scorching pavements or asphalt. Make sure we have access to plenty of water. And most important; don’t leave us in the car! Even if it’s just for 5 minutes. And if you see a dog with a heatstroke, cool him with lukewarm water.
If you remember this, we can all have a fun Summer.
