It is far too hot outside! Poor Stella puppy starts panting at the very start of her walks, and there is nothing we can do to help her short of a close shave. Especially because she doesn’t like to get wet! The picture above was taken after the first time she ever swam. She didn’t love it, and she started acting like a lunatic immediately after this picture was taken. She doesn’t even like getting washed in the bathtub. She always looks so pathetically cute after it’s all over.
But then, she came across the perfect summer oasis… a pile of ice, likely dumped from a soccer team’s cooler. She certainly had her way with it and brought a lot of joy to my day.
