Summer Naps

I've been taking a lot of naps lately. It's been very warm, and Shih Tzus don't do well AT ALL in hot weather. By the time I get back from my walk with Steven in the morning, I'm hot and tired, so I have have a big drink of water, eat my breakfast, then take a nap on the window seat. When it gets too hot there, I go into the laundry room and nap. The tile floor in there is nice and cool.

I haven't been bringing in many twigs in the past week. It's way too hot to go outside, except when I go out on the deck to bark -- that's how I say hello -- at the neighbors and their dogs walking by, and the UPS man in his truck. In the mornings, if we eat on the deck with the big overhead fan, I lay under the table.

Steven and BookGirl's bedroom is cool at night -- cool enough for a blanket. It's my bedroom too, since that's where I sleep. Sometimes when one of them gets out of bed, I jump up and snuggle under the covers. I have my own bed, of course, but theirs is so much bigger! That's me having a good snooze in the big bed.

Hi BP,
You look v. cute all cuddled in the blanket! I've been hanging in the basement during our hot weather. RL's been a little worried about me, but has also noticed that I'm eating a little more (I'm very skinny!). I don't know if the basement is too much of a good thing or not.
It's been raining here for a week so I haven't had a chance to play with BFF....hope you're getting to see your friends lots!

Hi, Bella! If we had a basement, it would be Steven's office. It's much cooler there than in any other part of the house, so often after lunch he'll take me down with him. Then I nap under his desk.

I'm glad to hear you're eating better. It's hard to eat a lot when it's hot, don't you think?
