Drums...growlmy has a huge bunch of those, all tiny and attached to a figure representing the drummers from various military regiments, etc.
Some peeps would know them as nutcrackers,as indeed many are, but there are a lot that are not...but this report is not about growlmy or her drummers...its about doldrums...
We got those here in huge doses...heat induced doldrums...and esp noticeable in my old aged dog-guy body...too darn hot! Sheesh, will it evfur cool down...and rain?? I don't remember what that is, BOL! At least I mean it sure feels like I could be furgetting what its like! Seriously, the rain comes in huge amounts, but there must be a dome over our area...sigh...

Well, I plop down under growlmy's desk chair if she is there, then growl at her if she dares to jiggle me with her feet by mistake..(Growlmy says that hot weather makes peeps and furs a lot more cranky than normal...), then I go and lounge under the dining room table, keeping watch ovfur the doings in the den...then I feel chilled by that overworked A/C, and have to go outside to bake under that hot sun...ooh that feels good on my aging bones...and when I get too broiled, I go back in the den and the whole routine starts ovfur again...sigh...Growlmy hasn't even taken me fur any strolls lately:(

Doldrums = Bored!

The ground is so dry and hard I can't even dig in it...
The grass is all dead, so even if I wanted to, there's none to munch on, so I have tried some daisy type hardier plants, but those don't taste too good...

The goats next door seem to be more adapted to this strange climate we are enduring, they just nibble here and there and evfurry where...then they have the nerve to walk along MY fence and they rub their furs all over it...if it wasn't strong enough they would knock/push it down, BOL!
At least they are fun to go and bark at and therm they either run away, or they stomp at me and try to head butt me through the fence, BOL!!
A bright spot in my doldrummer doggy days...sigh...

It's like that here to MJF and Momma is tired of trying to entertain me and Roscoe. Her grandson plays All Stars in this horrid heat and of course she wouldn't ever think of missing any of his games soooo uesterday it hit 97 and she was in the sun for over 2 hrs but we were home in the A/C..It's cool in the house but we are like you and miss being outside running and playing so I sleep a lot and Roscoe gets destructive and wants to chew everything up. Doldrums are not for the spoiled!

Hi, Monnie!

This is the strangest summer we have ever had! Hope it never happens any time soon...scary for all those farmers.

Well, I am not destructive...anymore...BOL! so at least that is not something growlmy worries about.

It is the same down here, to hot to move!!! I hate it cause I dont get to go on car rides when it is so hot. I dont get to lounge outside because Mom gets to hot and makes me come in as soon as I do my "business".

I am so ready for winter!!

it is like that for me too, I do NOT like coming out in the heat at all. Last night I was an itch about going for a walk and Mom said it's too hot, but we went anyway and she had to carry me half way home cause I couldn't make it

Hot and humid here. I have not wanted to go for any walks, so I just go out and do my business and come back in.

We are supposed to be living in a temperate climate...but we sure got fooled this summer, or the weather maker is all mixed up!

It's been the same way here, too. And I agree, the heat makes everyone tired and crabby!

very warm and muggy here. We haven't had rain in a long time either, and it's just so sticky. Not as bad as in Ontario and central, but too hot for us pups! We've been missing our walks too.

Crabby pants...BOL!

At least you like to get in the water, Pepper...not me:(

I can't believe it...crazy weather in NFLD, too??

We need to beg the Lord for an end to come to all this punishment to our earth-ball.
Normal may be boring...but we need to be normal, ASAP!
