Picnic bench double excursion!

Pooches, this heat wave just won’t go away.  We continue to bake and the weather prognosticators say it will get worse before it gets better.

My manservant said this morning that today was going to be spent in our library working on his fall semester academic responsibilities.  Nevertheless, he promised Starlight and me two excursions, both at the picnic bench in our back yard.  The first excursion was conducted as soon as he had prepared breakfast.  We all paraded out to the picnic bench and dined on pork chops and smothered toast!  Woo hoo!  A minor miscalculation of when he was going to give the ‘alright’ command penalized me two bites of pork chops in a row (rather unfair if you ask me).  As soon as we finished breakfast, not wanting to stay outside in the heat, Starlight and I headed inside for our morning naps while my manservant headed into the library to begin his day of academic preparation.

My manservant emerged from the library in late morning and donned his yoga costume and departed for his yoga class.  When he returned, he went into the kitchen and prepared a BLT for excursion #2.  Once again we paraded outside to the picnic bench to begin our lunch.  Noting the strange color of his drink, Starlight asked my manservant what he was drinking with lunch and was horrified to hear it was blood orange lemonade.  “Disgusting” she said over and over until I convinced her it was just orange juice.  She remained leery for the remainder of lunch  while my manservant ate his BLT and Starlight and I ate heartily of our B.

It’s back to napping for Starlight and me while my manservant buries himself in the library once again.

See you tomorrow on Silent Saturday, pooches!

Keep cool and hydrate!

It's not fair that I don't get a piece just because I grabbed mine a wee bit early last time!

It's under your paw, Starlight!
