It was hot yesterday. Really, really hot. 90+ degrees hot. Hot, I tell you, hot! When the family got home from school, Mom broke out the popsicles! I thought it was a great idea!
Ruth had a popsicle — actually, she had two! Gage had a popsicle and then told jokes off the stick. Mom and Dad had them too. Everyone had a popsicle.
Well, not everyone. . .
Where’s my popsicle? I’m a very small dog who is very hot and needs cooling down. You try wearing a fur coat in this heat. I wanna popsicle!
Even the baby birds didn’t get a popsicle and look how hot they are . . . panting! I guess if they didn’t get one, there’s no hope for a dog. Sigh.
