Ruby Tuesday: I want a popsicle!

10 Jun

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!

Ruthie loved her TWO popsicles!

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. . .

Ruby wants a popsicle

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!

Hot Beebees!

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.

    Sounds like a heatwave. Perfect popsicle weather.

    Hey! Give that dog a popsicle! We use popsicles liberally as treats at the zoo- the bears (polar, black and Andean Sunbears) as well as the primates and seals and big cats-everyone gets gallon bucket size frozen popsicles of fruit juice with chunks of veggies and fruit in them. It’s all the rave with the critters. Plus, it’s a hoot to watch the polar bears: they get a five gallon bucket size cherry koolaid popsicle and in their cooled 225000gal pool they can make an afternoon of it.
    (I love Ruth’s teeth and glasses! What is better than watching your childs face fall into place? They are beautiful children, Liza.)

    Could your Ruth be any cuter?

    Awww, poor Ruby. I agree with Lynne, Ruth is a cutie.
