It has been VERY hot the past couple of weeks so I have been spending most of my time in our air conditioned house. I get too hot when it is 90 degrees or higher outside. Mom says I "wilt"! Last Friday it was the hottest day yet! It reached 102 degrees! Auntie Carla invited us to her house for a pool party! I was invited too! Daddy was supposed to have a skating lesson, but he called up his coach and cancelled it. Daddy picked up some corn on the cob on his way home from work so we could bring it to the party. I was SO happy to go to Aunt Carla's house. It was good to see Gil. GT was in the bedroom because he is still afraid of most people. Mom went in to see him and say "Hi". Mom and dad made me stay in the house at first. They were helping Aunt Carla with the food and was afraid I would go swimming before they got their bathing suits on. Daddy got ready and told mom that she could let me out when he got close to the pool. All I really wanted to do was run! And I did!! Even though it was very hot out, I still had a really good run. Mom and dad got in the pool but I decided not to. I almost did a couple of times but after what happened at Gates pond, I realized I'm not a Golden Retriever! More and more people came- with dogs! Most of the dogs were Italian Greyhounds. There must have been at least 10 of them! Then there was me and Gil and one other dog who was not in the greyhound family. I was very social and greeted a lot of people( including Aunt Carla's mother who doesn't like animals!). It was fun! One of the Italian Greyhounds kept stealing food off the table! She pulled down a whole skewer of meat! She ended up back on her leash. I knew not to do that. I was very good. We stayed for several hours and it finally cooled off. It got dark and mom was getting attacked by bugs so we had to leave! She even put bug spray on but it didn't help. Her legs are still covered in bites. Of course I wanted to stay! I always do!! I know I will get invited back again soon.

Oh, I really, really hope you try out swimming in the pool!! It is so much fun! Izzy still refuses to swim, but at least she no longer holds a grudge when she falls in. :0)

Trust me, Isis, swimming is F-U-N!!

If you read some of my earlier entries you will see that I have been swimming in that pool. It was over a year ago. I had never seen a pool and jumped right in the middle of it. I went under the water, popped back up and managed to dog paddle to the edge of the pool (infinity pool) I got stuck! Mom, dad and Aunt Carla had to rescue me! Greyhounds are not known for swimming abilities. I have tiny paws and legs and I have no body fat! A month ago I walked off a rock ledge at Gates pond and once again had to swim. I am better off sticking to running- what I do best besides sleeping!

Thanks Su. You must know my mom and dad. They know all about Speciesism. They are both vegans. Mom agrees with you 100%. Woof! Isis
