More about Thunder's Project

Thunder here today. I know it has been a few days since I told you more about my big project. But I have run into a few glitches along the way and have had to revise some of my blueprints.

I have been working hard on my research. But so far I still haven't found all the information and materials I need to complete my project.

Hey, big brother - maybe you need some more fur - I obliged the Momster this morning for a little spa action here.

No, Ciara, I don't think I need more fur.
I am not sure what I need to do next.

But I do plan to continue my pondering today since it may hit 108 - 110 degrees F outside today.

UPDATED PHOTO ADDED 3:47 P.M. - wicked heat!

Woos, Thunder

How about I try to snag The Xterra when Mom isn't looking -

There is lots of extra fuzz in it -

AND of khourse, I'll have my own supply -


PeeEssWoo: Of khourse, that hinges on me not melting or vapourising when I hit Kansas! BTW, please tell The Momster my word is UNMATIN ;-)

Stewey said...

Whoa is that ever hot! It's only
86 degrees here. You better ponder your project in the AC!!!

Doris Sturm said...

Pondering indoors on the hardwood floor under the computer desk while it's 108 outside seems like a wise choice!

All I can think of is: "Spin it, baby, spin it good!" LOL

Gus said...

Wow! Y'all are having some big heat wave. Hope it cools off soon. I always think better when my brain is cool


rottrover said...

Look at that floof!! Thunder, we find that the best ideas come to us when we are snoozing... Happy pondering!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

That is hot!! It's hot enough here but I think you have us beat!! Stay inside!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

Sue said...

We're all just lying around the house trying to stay cool. We think we want to go out till Mom opens the door and we feel the heat. Dad started cutting our coats last night so that we'll feel a little cooler. When will this ever stop?

Do we detect a hint of mischief in your eyes in that bottom picture??? Hmmm, what are you plotting, Thunder??

BeadedTail said...

That's a lot of fur Thunder! Does Phantom give up as much of his fur that you and your sisfur do? Maybe you can make another you! Hope you stay cool today. It'll be low 80s here so wish you could come over!

Stella said...

Its mid 80s here today and supposed to hit 50F degrees tonight! So what I am gonna do is sleep all day and prowl around all night, when its 50. Its also sposed to be 80s for the rest of the week, though.

Snow! Where are you?


My word verification is coatedn

Stay cool, my friends! Can't wait to see your project....

Ginger Jasper said...

I am sure you will find a solution my woofie friend. Please keep cool.. Hugs GJ xx

Anonymous said...

I just know that you will come up with the right idea you just need lots of naps, ah I mean time to mull over the complex principles involved in your search.

Ah heck, just nap through the heat.

woos, Tessa

Tucker The Crestie said...

Holy hotness! 116 degrees?!!!!! That is just way too hot to bear!

Benny and Lily said...

You are smart to keep pondering since it's so hot out there

scotsmad said...

Now that's HOT!

Good thing you aren't wearing that extra fur.

We think you should save it and make it Angel Hair on your Christmas tree.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

Kitty+Coco said...

Gives a new meaning to Hot Dog doesn't it?
Not sure where your research will lead, but the Good Book is always a great place to start.

It sounds like staying in and staying cool is the only option at this stage, TD!


Maggie and Mitch said...

Love ya lots

Huffle Mawson said...

That seems quite hot. Are you planning on building a new puppy?

Mrs. JP said...

Brutal hot! Yall stay inside with the bought cool ait!
That's our sweet Ciara, always willing to help out. And please, if you need more fur we can donate a truck load :O)

Team Beaglebratz said...

Julia Williams said...

108!!! Oh wow, I hope you are staying cool. We had a thunderstorm today, and there was a crack of thunder so loud I nearly fell off my chair and keeled over dead. But I'll take that over 108 any day!!

Steffi said...

Good luck on your project! And we hope you don't melt in that 108 degree weather - that is INSANE!!

- Starbuck, Nari and Alpha

Sagira said...

Pheww...that sure is hot. Good thing you lost all that fur to help keep you cooled offer.

STELLA from Down Under said...

Oh my gosh. Try to stay cool everyone. Keep your fur for winter. You could make a big pillow from it. No worries, and love, Stella

T. Maxx said...

Woo! Can't wait to find out more about your


Mr. Pip said...

EEK!!!! Now, that's hot! Make sure you work on your project inside where it is cool!

Your pal, Pip

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

Here ya go - put those furs to good use!

Dory and the Mama said...

Let us know how it turns out Thunder...maybe when the weather cools off you'll figure that out!

Dory, Jacob and Bilbo

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Go ahead and keep chilling out.
Your temps are FRYING!
I cannot even imagine!


Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Yikes! That is hot even by OUR standards! Take your time researching, planning and creating...you might be in for a while. The White Dog Army is sending cooling energy and positively chilling thoughts.

Wyatt said...

Maybe you could use all the fluff to stuff cushions for patio furniture. We had to buy some foam to fix one of our cushions (that some dog chewed) and it's expensive. Your floofy fur would work great!
Sorry it is so dang hot for you :(


Suka said...

Very curious project you have going on. Can't wait to learn more about it! Nice fluffy balls of fur. :->

Today was brutal. It hit 111 degrees in mid-afternoon by me, but by evening, around 6ish, it said it was about 102 degrees. Now the humidity is back so right now it seems hotter outside than it was at 102. I hope this ends soon.

Stay cool, pups!


p.s. Great photos! But I especially love the last one, and how his eyes are looking at you. :->

Anonymous said...

We just took a short walk at 11:30 pm & it's still unbelievably hot and sticky... any chance your project has something to do with bringing us nicer weather?

You know, Shiver doesn't normally shed all that much. But then I had to take him to the vet last week and they had me lift him on a table to look him over. They left the room for his injections and OMD, there was hair EVERYWHERE on that table! He could rival Thunder's collection!

Yowza! We've had some over 100 degree weather but not as hot as 108. Hope that air conditioning is working!

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Hmmm... I'm not sure what I think of this 108 temperature. You see, Mom is busy interviewing for jobs for next summer and the summer job typically leads to a full time job. One place she is looking is Kansas City, which I approved of based on all the snow I see that you get, but I didn't realize I would also have to deal with 108. I might have to rethink whether I can endorse this location. (Although, being able to play with Thunder might make up for it.)
