It’s Summer Time!
Summer is so rough because of the heat. Mom says it gets hotter each summer. I can’t take it!
Then there is the rain. It’s nice because it is not so hot in the afternoon but then I am stuck inside. Nothing to do except chew up my toys. After a while it builds up and I can’t take it anymore…I run all through the house! Boy does that make mom mad. Although I think she lets me have a couple rounds anyway. Dad really doesn’t like it.
To keep me “amused” as mom says she sets up a game for me. A hunt I can do inside when it’s raining. She gets a bunch of boxes and puts them face down on the floor. There are treats in only some of them. I find the treats. Mom says I have gotten so good at it the game goes real fast now. I don’t even flip over the empty boxes. She can’t fool me.
The other rainy day game we play is Bone Hunt! It’s the same as Bone Hunt I play at Easter but inside. Mom hides treats in the house while I’m in another room. She opens the door and I whip through like a hurricane and gobble up all the treats I find! That’s fun but goes so fast.
The part about Summer I really like is when mom sets up the pool. I love it! I used to be a “big baby” with water, so mom says, but now I am a big boy. I am not so scared of water.
Mom got the pool set up this summer and I was there to break it in.
I’m ok in the pool but that hose. It shoots all that water out and then it splashes the water in the pool. It drives me nuts!
I did my best to catch all that water coming out of the hose. That’s not easy. It just keeps coming!
Mom cheated and squirt me with the hose a few times
I hid by dad. I knew she wouldn’t squirt me there. HA!
I wasn’t going to quit. I was going to catch that water and put a stop to it!
I tried different strategies. Diving for it.
And sneaking up on it.
I’ll get it. I know I’m getting closer.
