TOO Hot Tuesday





What we all like to do when it is too hot to be outside!




Phantom likes the window view from that side. TD and Ciara have decided to share the best cool air vent in the house, but you can see who got first and closest dibs.


Many of you commented about the noise the roofers will be making and wondered how it will impact Phantom. He has actually lost a lot of his hearing, so we are hoping he won't notice it too much. Ciara is more likely to be the one who gets upset. As for the fun in the no-sibe zone, we will be closely monitored by the Momster whenever we go out while the roofers are working. It won't be safe for us to be out alone because of falling debris and because Mom doesn't trust any one to keep our gate closed and locked. So it will be a tough four or five days while the work is completed, but that doesn't start until next week. Then a week later there should be new gutters coming, and after that a new paint job. We aren't sure if the barricade will be going up and down for each event or just staying down - but we are hoping for our chance to sneak in there and check up on strange scents.

After tomorrow we are going to be MIA for a bit as the humans are sending us off to our "home away from home" while they go on a mini-vacation. We will have a few posts scheduled, but we won't be able to comment on your posts. We are so sorry we are going to miss the big Picnic in the Bark, but we did send in a few pics for some of the events. Be sure to visit Frankie Furter's post HERE for all the places you can go on Friday and Saturday to see all the picnic fun.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

The AC vent is always the best place to be when it's hot! Have fun away on your mini-vacation! It's best to be gone when the roofers show up and start pounding! Lots of love, Holly & Mom

rottrover said...

We love how you gather 'round the air vent!!

We ALWAYS get sent to our 'home away from home' when there are workers here. We are LUNATICS. and yeah, there's the gate thing ;-) Mom sure wishes we were getting new gutters and paint! She is jelly!

Enjoy your mini-vacation. We look forward to hearing all about it when woo get back!

My hoomie turns on the A/C quite frequently now. So you guys are going to doggy daycare? Well, have a fun time there & I hope your hoomies have a wonderful vacation! Hopefully they will bring back something for you three.

Mrs. JP said...

yep, our pack does that too. JP and I will be wondering if the a/c is working and look around and the vents in the room are covered.

Zona said...

Enjoy your vacation!!! We'll miss you but can't wait to hear all about it. I hope it cools off for you - it's pretty comfortable here now!

Too hot, too cute! Have a wonderful vacation!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

As a girl, I completely approve of Ciara's placement. As Thunder's girlfriend, I do not and think Thunder should be right on top of the vent.

Enjoy your vacation!!

Luv,
Kat

Julia Williams said...

that will be a stressful week, but hopefully the mini vacation will help all of you get de-stressed and super relaxed.

Sue said...

It was actually a relief of sorts when Bentley started losing his hearing. He wasn't bothered as much by storms and other intrusions.

Hang in, it'll be worth all the confusion when it's done.

Big Carl thinks that AC vents are too cold and should be shut off cause they make him shiver

What a beautiful picture of coolness you represent as you snuggle up to the vent. I hope you all have a good time (aka: a partay) while your PUs are away - I'm sure they will miss you and will hopefully bring lotsa good treats home to ease their guilty minds.

Woofs and innocent slobbers,
Chester ;0=)

Monty loves the cold airs too! But mostly we just haves the fans on. Hope you and your humans are safe wherever you may be!

scotsmad said...

Have a great holiday at your home away from home. Hope there are some a/c vets for Ciara, so she'll feel at home.

Sounds like there's going to be alot of activity around your house this summer.

XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella

mayziegal said...

I always think you must feel a billion times hotter than I do with those thick furs of yours. It's good you have a cold-making box at your house cuz I'm worried you would burst into flames if you didn't.

Have fun at your home away from home and I hopes your humans have fun on their vacation!

Wiggles & Wags,
mayzie

Tessa the Maltese said...

Sure hopes that all will be well and that the noise does not bother anypup or hooman!

Mom is going to send an email to your Mom about my Platy Pus!

woos, Tessa

Schnauzer Days said...

Have a great time, 4 legged and 2 legged friends. Great spot to find around the cool air vent, we could have used some air con today - it was boiling hot, the human took water on our walk and we had to stop every 15 minutes for a drink. See you soon, be good :-) Dex & Lou xxx

Maggie and Mitch said...

Enjoy your mini-vacation! You all look so comfy worshipping the CentralAire vent!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Winnie said...

Hope you have a great time.

The LOTH wants to know how your mum keeps that carpet so clean.

And we don't have air conditioning either. Sunshine is rare and very welcome in England (but we still moan about the weather whatever it does)

Love and licks, Winnie

Heat = unhappiness. Stay cool and Flash concurs with Phantom, there must always be a view.

BeadedTail said...

That looks like a great spot to spend a Too Hot Kansas day! Sounds like there's going to be a lot of workers there for awhile with the roof, gutters and painting so we hope it all goes smoothly. Hope your mom and dad have a wonderful mini-vacation!

jen said...

I hope you have a great trip!

One thing I just of was when getting your new roof watch out for all the old nails that roll off! we had this happen when we got our new roof, I walked outside in the backyard and there was all these rusty nails in the grass, I was so mad! some of them were sticking straight up and any of the dogs could of stepped on them. Of course I made it clear to the roofers that this was not acceptable and they tried to be more careful. I wound up just having to go outside before the dogs to do a quick check!

Myndi said...

I love how Ciara is claiming the vent! I wonder if they'll have a nice vent like that where they're staying for vacation?

Have fun on your trip!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Lorenza said...

Sure you know where is the best spot on a hot day!
My grandma has been behind me all these days. The working men leave the door open all the time and... you know!
Enjoy your vacation!
Take care

House stuff is always tough logistically. Good luck! But meantime, enjoy your mini-vacations. Every one be safe and have a wonderful time. We will be thinking of you all.

road-dog-tales said...

Oh, man, we don't envy the renovating projects! We don't care for people invading our space - if you know what we mean. On the other hand, this does seem a perfect opportunity for YOU to invade the no-sibe zone :) Good luck!

We will miss you at the picnic but will look for you in pics! Hope your peeps have a fun vacay!
