In years past, we’d celebrate with a long walk through the meadows or the woods. This year, though, with heat and humidity pushing the thermometer past the high 90s and into the 105-110 °F range, we’re finding other ways to enjoy ourselves.
Treat time is always a morning hit, followed by squirrel patrol, play time when the sprinklers come on, and checking out the garden. We have a bumper crop of hybrid cucumbers that are so sweet you could almost believe you’re eating watermelon. And since cucumbers of any kind are Sasha’s idea of the perfect treat, she gets all she wants through the hot summer. Add some Feta cheese to her meals and she is one happy dog.
Morning naps under a ceiling fan, afternoon naps on the cool tile floor, or evenings spent dozing in her bed beside me–she’s got a good life and she knows it!
