It may be Word(y) Wednesday, but it’s also washday, which means we’re off to visit patients today and tomorrow. The next couple of weeks are filled with all sorts of commitments and out of town visitors swinging by the Ranch, so posts may be somewhat sparse. Never fear, we’ll do our best to keep up on reading all of your posts and hopefully, we’ll be able to add a smile or two along the way. Stay cool sport’s fans. It’s 🔥 🔥 🔥 hot, hot, hot this week in the 303; how is it in your neck of the woods?
Live, love, bark! ❤︎

Stay out of Elsa’s way. She gets ornery when she’s hot.
She’s ornery even when she’s not hot. 😉
Tippy is NOT a fan of baths, so she is sending her heartfelt sympathies to Sam. LOL It is very hot here – in the 90’s and feeling like close to 100. We try to get our walks in before lunch and then chill in the air conditioning the rest of the day.
It’s usually over 80 by 10 so we go early, early to avoid that heat. Black dogs really suffer in the dog days and Elsa spending a good time panting to cool off after our walks. Humidity was nearly 50% this morning-unheard of around here where it usually hovers in the teens to low twenty’s.
Yes. Being a black dog is no fun, I imagine, when it is hot. I know Tippy just wants to spend most of the day in the house. We have high humidity too. That makes it miserable.
In this heat, not of us are very perky. All I can say is thank heavens for AC!
I’m a sort of therapy cat for my peep, but not officially like yourself. And every day is a wash day here on account of it raining so much, and I do like a good wash before during and after I go to bed. Have a lovely and not too hot week, and hope your visits are are all wonderful.
We think all pets with loving pawrents are therapy providers 😍
We are not going anywhere but someone around here needs a bath. And it’s not me. Enjoy your activities!
Hello there Miss Monika & Sam! I live in O-R-E-gon so I will try to send some cooler weather your way, ’cause it has been staying in the low “80s” here Mom says. We have overcast skies each day until lunchtime. Maybe Sam would go for a popsicle or ice cube to help cool off? Mew Mew!
What a small world. My daughter just moved from Eugene. We love the PNW and will happily accept cooler weather and any extra rain you can spare. Thanks for swinging by the Ranch!
BOL! Love this photo! So adorable!
We finally got a little bit of rain today, broke the sun streak. We have some terrible forest fires right now in northern BC so hopefully the rain helps a bit because the sunshine and heat is supposed to be back for the rest of the week!
Stay cool! 😉
I think the entire West needs more rain for all the fires currently burning. We sure do in Colorado.
OMD, for a second I thoughts that was an AIREDALE under that towel!!!!! BOL! We almost have the same size snooter! Though, you’re missin’ the famous beard…or as Ma likes to call it…the Water Catcher. You haven’t lived til you’ve had a ‘beard shower’! BOL!!!!
Anyhu, have tons of funs with your company, and stay cool…it’s suppose to be HOT HOT HOT this week!
Ah yes, the ole beard shower. We used to have 2 Old English Sheepdogs, so I’m VERY familiar with those. Nothing quite like it, either! Gotta love those ‘red noses.’ Stay cool, Ruby.
It is crazy hot and humid down here on the bayou. We will be spending quality time in the air conditioning! Enjoy your company. ♥
Stay cool. AC is a lovely concept during these hot days.
It’s even “hot” up here (we’re not used to it). It must have hit 80 today, and I wilted. I sure hope that it cools down for all of us!
Very cute wash day photo!
We’re counting down the days until Autumn.
Happy visits all around! It’s been hot, hot here, too! You stay cool, too! Love the pic!
As my favorite New York radio dj used to say – “the three H’s: Hazy, Hot, and Humid.” All. Week. UGH! The only things I hate about summer. But, unlike my dogs, I love thunderstorms. I just hate how they effect the girls, especially Shadow. Oh well. Cést la víe.
Still cold and damp here. Now at the winter halfway mark so I hope to see a bit more of the sun and less rain clouds. So don’t hog it all, leave some for us.The long range weather forecast is for a hot summer here too.
I’ll be more than happy to send you gobs of summer 🌞
Our mom said last night we needed a bath so we are on borrowed time!
Murphy & Stanley
Have a great therapy day and have fun on your adventures.
😍 The therapy days provide so much love and happiness, don’t they?
Hope all goes well with your patient visits and your other activities! We finally got done with our cool spell of weather here so we’re welcoming the heat. Well, for a few days anyway, we’ll be wishing for the cool back soon enough, most likely! 🙂
We always want something different, don’t we? 😇
It’s almost perfect here in our neck of the woods – maybe ever-so-slightly warmer and more humid than we would ideally want, but it’s so darn close, we really shouldn’t complain.
Very Hot here as well!! Love the pic 🙂
Sam lost his curls, oh no! It’s 900F here. . .
Luckily they re-appear quickly. 🙂 Stay cool.
303 degrees!?!? Wow, I guess I can’t complain about our 100 degree days…
Hot here too! Love that photo! Have fun with your visitors!!!
We’re counting down the days until Autumn. When I’m talking about dog days, they don’t have digits!
how adorable! Sam, such a model poodle! Next we’ll see your pic in magazines!
He’s just hoping it won’t be the swimsuit edition. 🤣
In a word – H.O.T. Please make the summer go away. I don’t like how it plays during this time of the year. Hope ya’ll have some fantastic visits. <3 XOXO – Bacon
Thanks Bacon. Yeah I’m totally over this whole ‘summer heat’ thing too. But I’ve been that way since the first of June! BOL
We concur. The heat is awful. Mom says that she can always put on clothes to get warm. You can’t do anything for this stupid heat. Yucky. XOXO – Bacon
seems this day is made for baths… probably therefore humans call it wet-nesday ;o)
Wet-nesday. I LOVE it! Sam sends sympathies for the H2O torture to Phenny…brother in paws.
90’s and sunny around here. Hiiiii Sam!
Stay cool. Today close to a 100. Awk.
