We have had a very hot week here, with temps in the upper 80's to low 90's, and NO rain for way too long, such that the grass has turned brown where there is no shade and is all crunchy and hard on our paws. And there have been a number of fires here and there; we are in a heat advisory and an air quality one, too...as well as a fire hazard warning.
There was rain in our area, but none fell on our grass and it was not really enough...but at least the forecast is calling for more pleasant temps in the week ahead.
When petcretary was at her work, she got some pictures of Mrs Mallard and her brood of ducklings...it seems each spring there is a new duck family to entertain the residents! Maybe its the same one, who knows! When they are in there, however, they cannot wander out, and since they need to eventually get to water other than in a kiddy pool, well, we have to call a wildlife rescue to catch them and bring them to one of the many ponds and small lakes around here, preferably one in a nature preservation area.
|Mrs Mallard and her ducklings. Any guesses as to how many ducklings there are??|
Here we are in our tongue hanging out cause its too hot ussies:
|Its so hot, so we just lounge in shady areas and pant...don't worry, we can go inside at will through the doggy door, and find the cool AC and fresh water in there.|
|Petcretary changed the ugly next door background...|
|Hey Benji! I heard there is a special day coming up really soon!|
In recent days there were some sad families because their beloved furry ones left for the RB...this link will bring you to the mementos that were made in their honor.
