How to Keep a little Cool!

This is my favorite way to keep cool.  Walk a mile to the Lake, jump into the lake, get totally wet, come up for air and then SHAKE IT, SHAKE IT, SHAKE IT!

This is so very much fun because sometimes there are kids around you and they squeeeee! when I do this.  But I don't care because I love it.

Here is something else that is fun.  If you have a nice deep bowl of drinking water on your porch or deck, you can first stick your whole face in it and get soaked.  Then stick your front feets in it and give your Mom a big hug.  Oh, does she ever love that!  Some things like this are worth doing over, and over and over again!

I hope that all you pups are happy and healthy, and for those who are sick we send our prayerful good wishes!

Wet sprays on you for coolness and big hugs for love,

Stella who wants winter to come!

  5. That is a awesome way to keep EVERYBODY cool! BOL Looks like a fun day!



  6. PERFECT ways to beat the heat!! We are giving our ice maker a work out and keeping our big bowl full of ice--The dogs can't get enough!!

    Stay cool and enjoy your Sunday!!

  7. Stella, you do know how to keep cool, girlfriend!! Love the hug idea - we usually just shake all over mom...

  8. Stella,

    That is brilliant. I am going to order a lake on that Amazon place. That mom won't mind if I use her credit card, right?


    1. Hey Beckett(one of my first buddies of blogging)!

      If I was your that Mom I would say go ahead because I would want you to be the happiest dog ever!

      Your pal,

  9. You sound like Kuster and Morgan! They both love getting in the water. I prefer to dip my toes in, but not go too far. However, if hot dogs are in the pool, all bets are off!


  10. Howdy Stella Up Over, Winter? You want winter? Ok take ours and we'll do a swap ok? We love your way of keeping cool and especially love how you share it with your mum and anyone else passing by. What a great friend you are. See ya sweetie. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  11. Stella, thank you very much for such excellent advice. In the unlikely event that Global Warming ever reaches Scotland....
    Toodle pip!

  12. What fun ideas! We like finding the spot where the hose dribbles creating a little mud pool and then digging and playing in it! We could do that when you come to visit White Dog Ranch...but we would also take you to swim in the Rio Grande (a must for every pup visitor to our home)!

  13. I love your water photo! I hope it cools down for you. Summer is fun, when it's not too hot.

  14. Me and you both, Stella! Two more months of this heat and then winter! Yay!!!!

  15. That looks like so much fun. We like to get Mom all wet, too.
    Morgan, Sebastian and the Porties

  16. That certainly does look like a ton of fun -- and what a great capture by your Mom!! Love it.
