We hounds (Maebe and myself) have been working very hard to develop superpowers. We weren't born with any (other than all the usual superpowers that all dogs have and that humans don't appreciate, like being able to sniff out dead things from the tops of tall buildings and all that) so we have gone to extremes to get some. Superpowers, that is.
I tried to get lasers attached to my feet. I could lift a paw and shoot them!! Pew! Pew! No joy. I went to the vet for laser treatment and all they did was shine a light on my toe. Not at all what I had in mind. Sure it made the little ouchy spot there feel better but "Captain Arthritis" is the lousiest superhero name ever. Very disappointing.
Maebe, however, really went over the top. I think she must have watched too many versions of Spiderman. She actually went to the vet to get radiation. I'm not sure what she was hoping to gain by that...X ray vision, maybe? Holy moly, do you think she can see me naked? I never trusted that dog. Who knows what she's thinking. Maybe she'll tell you.
Until then, I rely on my regular (but still super) powers: Super Guapo!
Springtime in Arizona brings weather that we used to call summer everywhere else I’ve lived. Upside: lots of interesting things to sniff. Lizards! Weeds! Sidewalk food: Nilla wafers! Downside: HOT! Spring (being hot-tempered and all) begged and begged and finally the bosses caved and bought her an ool. (You know, no “p” in it) It’s pretty small for swimming but makes a great water dish. Except, of course, for the terrier sitting in it. Terrier stew isn’t my favorite but I like to play a little game with every water dish I’ve ever had: see if I can drink it all. Leave the terrierist high and dry. Ha! Let’s see if she can keep her cool then.
