Hide and seek

It’s hot. Sizzling hot.

And when you have golden fur, it’s worth trying anything to get away from the heat.

All you have to do is go under the jasmine bush,

Dig a very very deep hole (and hope that your human doesn’t get too angry about it) –

And then enjoy the coolness!

    • He swims all the time as we live next to a lake… but sometimes he likes to lie in his hole and watch the world go by, unseen by passers-by.

    • I just laughed when I saw what he had done. We’ve left the hole so that he can hide in there whenever he feels like it!
