White Dog, The Other White Dog, Another White Dog, Still Another White Dog, and Yet Another White Dog could not believe we made good on our promise of a morning trip to the Park when the grass was still cool and the Park shady and the temperature relatively bearable.

"But it was after 2 this morning when you got home. Really? We have to get up and go to the Park? Now?" YoYoMa whined when Steve opened the blinds at 8:45am.

"It is already getting hot so it is now or never," Steve replied. "Then we must take Michael to the shelter; it's his volunteer day."

White Dog heard "now or never" and scrambled out from under the chair. She started issuing commands for the WDA to get out of bed, do their morning duties, and fall in for a Park trip. For those not moving fast enough, she walked behind them nosing them into quicker action. For Nuka, who slept through the announcement, WD "accidentally" bumped her, awakening sleeping beauty.

They were ready to go before Michael finished his muffin, so HE got hassled by the entire crew which was now waiting impatiently by the front door. Finally the show got on the road.

It was worth the trip!

HA! I love WD's resourcefulness and take charge attitude! Like you, we're really at the mercy of this unrelenting heat. It's almost become unbearable. Curtains drawn, a/c blasting, not moving too much...
Glad you got a cool am reprieve!

Maybe we can borrow the WD next time the v-e-t comes over - she is way more organized than mom!! Hope you guys had a great time at the park.

It looks like it was a very pretty day for a morning walk. Too hot here, we walked at 8:30 last night and it was still 98, not good sibe weather for sure.

White Dog, you do a great job as the commander of your pack.

Nice work to get the lazy parents out the door! You know what we had to do today to get the parents out the door on a walk? We invited a mama moose and her baby to come to our yard, so Mom and Dad couldn't just let us play outside - they had to take us on a long hike! (And the moosies still hadn't left when we got home! So there, Mom and Dad!)
