Hot dog

Have you every thought about how difficult it must be to go around wearing a thick woolly sweater all year round?

There you are – one minute playing out in the sunshine with a football…

… and the next minute, you deliberately go off in search of snow in order to cool off!

  7. I was wondering if you’d ever see bare ground out there! Oscar just wants to make sure he gets a few last rolls in the snow before it’s all gone away.

    Do I detect grass on the lawn and depleting layer of snow?

    Yes, Bently gets so warm when the sun shines right now even though it’s not that warm in temps- can’t imagine how he will be this summer- going to have to get a kiddy pool I think….hahahaha…Oscar has the idea- smart boy!

  11. I think our cats are just permanently cold….they have spent all winter glued to the radiator (honestly, I swear Gai had steam coming off him) and now that we have some sunshine…they can be found splatted in the patch of sun roasting!!

  12. So cute and I dare say the woolly fur coat gets boiling hot with only a tongue panting to cool down.
    Lovely photos.

    April… the month of shedding dog hair EVERYWHERE in my house! By the handsful. Every nook and cranny. Love my dogs. Hate dog hair. They go nuts and get all excited on a cool breezy day since the snow is gone now.

  15. Yeah, he should definitely never move to Paraguay. There´s no snow to cool off here…. :)

  16. Wise boy – he knows how to make himself comfortable.

  17. or just leave your tongue hanging out the side of your mouth and just not worry about it because everyone thinks it is cute anyway? smiles.

    Cute doggie!!

  19. He is such a fun looking dog!

  20. Our girls are clipped quite short every five weeks or so but I think a lot of the time a dog’s coat acts as a cooling mechanism as well as insulation – I don’t know the science behind it but I’m sure I read it somewhere

  21. With those warming temps, soon your snow will be gone, Fi. Then you will have to fill a plastic pool for the dogs!

  22. Do you ever shave him? We’ve been considering that with Minky this year because the hair is SOOOOOOO plentiful. I hear pros and cons but our area occasionally reaches 115 degrees in the summer. I know I shave myself when this happens. :)

  23. Dodger is in the garage now cooling off on the cool concrete after having a run with a neighbor dog. No snow here right now to cool him down. I love how dogs love balls, big and little ones.

  25. Whoever said only humans could be irrational and inconsistent? Dogs can do just as well if they try!

  26. Oscar is sooooo handsome!

    April 12, 2010 at 13:35

  27. It must be good to be a dog.

  28. That’s how I sometimes feel in California where you can wear a sweater in the morning and a bikini in the afternoon.

  33. Cuteness! It’s hard out here for a dog.

  34. Just stopped by to say thanks for visiting my blog!

    Cute post…my cat is solid black, and when on her brief outside forays in the summer, she heads directly for the shade under the patio umbrella!

  35. Spring sometimes comes to warm and fast when you have fur! Oscar is looking a little thin Lady Fi..should I worry about him? He seems to look really aged lately:(

    April 13, 2010 at 15:14

    • He’s had silver fur since he was two apparently… I’ve cut down on his food but I’ll give him full portions again as others have said he’s looking a bit thin… (Well, he is a bit under the weather after being bitten.)
