Does it ever really change

The Air up there

Talk about a ringer of a day. Have I ever mentioned that I hate the heat?... if not here it is. I Hate the heat. The air conditioning has gone out at the house and mom and I nearly roasted today. We would have gone out for the day but honestly it wouldn't be fair to my siblings (at least that's what mom said... I wasn't thinking that straight) Looks like tomorrow is going to be another hot day, mom says we might take my sibs down to the barn and crate them since it's always about fifteen degrees cooler there than the house in the summer. Though she mentioned a swim, I'm guessing the swim won't happen. Mom's just not a big fan of swimming but swimming in the creek in this heat sure sounds like a better option than roasting in the house.

Once it cooled down enough for mom to feel safe leaving everyone at home, we went out for a little time at the local walmart. About the only thing good about that place is that it's open 24 hours a day. It's amazing that mom's not the only one running around in the wee hours of the night.

Her insomnia has been acting up again as well as her panicking at night. I think I had to get up ten or eleven times the other night to cut the lights on and then check the house. I don't mind, during the day I get to crash at her feet while she's working on projects. The doctors are trying to adjust her meds to get her to sleep but this just makes her cranky... I don't blame her. She takes them and turns into a zombie, or doesn't and can't sleep at all. Neither are good options.

I've been working on my "find" for the last few weeks and made what mom called a fantastic leap from finding toys and keys and remotes to finding people I knew. Mom's so pleased with me but she calls me the boy wonder for a reason. She says this brings my 'tricks' up to 72 non standard commands, am I awesome or what?

Now just cross your paws that we figure out something about that dratted air....

Happy! I definitely sympathize on having to check the house throughout the night. My mom needs that, too! Sometimes it seems like she never sleeps! And boy, the heat sounds awful. It's been hot here, but at least our AC sort of works. Mom gives me ice to play with and wraps ice packs for me to lay on. Maybe you could ask your mom to do that for you and your siblings, too!

Pawful hugs,
Megahn & Mandi
