Cooler (Cloud) Heads Have Prevailed

The ocean air has made it over the Cascade mountain range and we have lots of clouds and wind and cooler temperatures. It was getting to be too hot - even for me!

This is me and Cooper checking out the pee mail situation.

Mum took us for a walk to the park tonight and it was really windy. Cooper's ear were a flappin' away BOL!

This here are the thistles and their "cotton" stuff. It was
everywhere and it did not taste as good as it looked.

We saw the thistle bushes making little drifts of white cotton all over the place and it was flying though the air too.

When we got home, the wind had knocked more apples off the tree! Mum picked up most of the apples and threw them into the composter - she says they have a blight or something nasty. We don't care, why should she?

This here is Cooper chowing down on his apple.
He eats outside like an animal.

This here is moi. I eat inside like a civilized canine.

Mum is really tired for some reason so we are going to bed early tonight. I told her that if she had, had chocolate for dinner she would be much more energetic but she didn't listen. She had a bunch of different salads and a big glass of water - how boring is that? But she did give each of us a Trisket and a piece of cheese. Cheese and crackers without wine? What are we? In prison?


Our friend, Kylie is having a contest at her blog for a new dog collar, and you get to pick the fabric and stuff. It is from Cody's Creations and there is a link to the Etsy shop Cody has. We never win anything but that is okay. Mum bought me a new treat bag from the  Etsy shop with a skull and cross bones - that'll scare the girls at obedience school! BOL!

This is what the Treat Bags look like.
Mine is orange and black with skulls.
It clips on your pant belt loop.
Pretty cool huh?

I thought it was just us in the US who were burning up this summer. It's been a scorcher.
By the way, did you create your header pic? I've always loved it...

Cloud. wind, cool temperatures? Are you sure you're not in Scotland?
Toodle pip!
PS Gail agrees that chocolate is the best thing for energy.

Hi guys, We got rain too!!!! After about 50 YEARS without it. I don't think it's going to be much cooler though...just humid-er. More humid-er. Whatever.
We think your Mom should have had chocolate for dinner too....but humans never go for the simple fix do they?

That treat bag is GREAT! I'm going to have Mom go check them out - the one she has keeps falling off her belt! Glad the weather is cooperating, even if you aren't getting any wine with your cheese.... ;-)

Oooo... all that fluff in the air had Grammy coughing just looking at it. It's cooling off big time around here, too. It was 110 on Tues. and only in the 80's today. Supposed to be in the 70's tomorrow, and it's WONDERFUL!!!!!

Better be careful not to eat those appleseeds cause they have poison in them. We love apples, too, and share one with Grammy everyday!

That Treat Bag is a really good idea. Thanks for showing it to us! The CCC
