Mom said we should take time to wish all the humans and fur people a Happy Fourth of July!
We’re not doing much celebrating because it’s too hot. In fact, Hemingway got in trouble again this morning.
You are such a tattler!
Well, I heard Mom telling you to quit knocking things off the entertainment center, desk and end tables.
Mom wouldn’t pay attention to me. She should have known I had to go outside.
I wanted to go out too, but I figured I should be good ‘cuz I knew Mom didn’t get much sleep and she was not in a very happy mood.
Well, I notice that you ran right out the door with me.
Mom was out talking to one of her human neighbors and I came up to join in the conversation. It’s so hot outside and I started panting. The neighbor was amazed that I knew how to do that.
I’ve been doing it, too! We’re both hot and we try to find cool places. You try walking around with all this fur…..not to mention a gloriously fluffy tail.
My tail is big and fluffy, too. Besides I get hotter ‘cuz my fur is black.
Why did we start writing this blog today?
Oh, that’s right. We wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July. You fur people stay away from the fireworks. If the noise bothers you, tell your humans to take you downstairs to a safe place.
If you’re having really hot weather like we are, be sure to drink lots of water and stay out of the sunshine.
We have to go find some shade now and enjoy the breeze.

Happy 4th of July to you, too!
Thank you. We don’t like this hot weather. Now we know why Mom’s crabby.
Happy 4th of July. Can whee suggest your Mummy make ice cube trays with a treat or piece of food in for you to lick till it melts. Not only is it cooling and hydrating but you get a treat at the end. Our Mummy knows doggies love this and even makes ones for herself with fruit in but you might find they make the heat more bearable.

That sounds really good. She could put some of our catnip in the ice cubes. We would really like it. Actually, Mom does put ice in our water and we like to hit it around in the dish and splash water.
Messy! Whee like it! 🙂
Stay cool guys!
Thanks! We’re really trying. Mom says if we can make it until the weekend then we might be surprised with some cooler weather. How far is it until the weekend???
I never understood the human concept of week and weekend…
Isn’t it strange? Why do humans have that difference? As long as we get fed, get brushed, get a chance to play outside and maybe get some catnip, we don’t care if it’s the week or the weekend!
Humans are very complicated creatures…
