It’s a hot cloudless day here with temperatures hovering around 28°. Lovely weather…for humans. Not so lovely if you’re a big brown dog who hasn’t lost his winter coat yet. Jack’s in the process of shedding and, even though his fur is coming out in bunches and bunches, he’s still a hairy beast. So to bypass the worst of the heat we set out early this morning and kept the walk short. Even then, Jack was unenthusiastic and plodded slowly most of the way. He did perk up once we were home though and is now happily sat in front of the air conditioning vent. The forget-me-nots in the photo are blooming madly beside my driveway. I have no idea how they got there, but they’re cheerful and I like them.
