I LOVE SUMMER!
I don’t even care if it is HOT!
Summer and I go together no matter what… there are things to do outside always!
Heck, I don’t even sleep in my dog house in SUMMER!
I sleep out next to the dog house in the cool, cool dirt!
We do lots of stuff in the summer…every day is FULL!
There is helping Dad irrigate … we ride up on the four-wheeler with Mom and then while they set tubes we help stir up the mud in the ditch so it washes away!
Our dog cousins like to hang out in the canal…Boomer and I NEVER go in the canal it would wash us away, away, away.
The little kids play in water also…Boomer, Hank and I have never been invited into that water, but I’ll bet I WOULD LIKE IT!
We always help Mom when she works outside…I like to rest my eyes while she is working. Lots of times Boomer keeps watch to see when Mom moves from one garden to the next garden.
(I have scared Mom a time or two because she says I sleep ‘like the dead’. I’m not sleeping! Hurampf, puff, puff I’m just resting. I always wake-up when Mom touches me and asks if I’m okay. OR GO!! I AM ALWAYS READY TO GO!)
Mom says I have to change sides with Boomer on the four-wheeler because I’ve fallen off twice. On the side I now ride on I can lean on Mom’s back to hold my balance. You see I always Stand UP and sometimes my legs get tired. The way I liked to ride on the other side I just would NOT lean on Mom when I got tired. Now I do.
It has taken Boomer and me a lot of getting use to these other sides, but Mom says We Have to switch so we are learning.
Then when Mom goes inside we go in also. Cool air is really nice when the days are too hot. We are having humidity with our heat now—panting isn’t always cooling ENOUGH!
That is how it is in the Good Old Summer Time!
