Wordless Wednesday - Cooling Off Edition

The best thing to do on a hot day is to go sit on a sand bar in the stream!

How are you guys staying cool??

Love, Gizmo

That looks pretty relaxing, but doesn't your butt get wrinkly from staying in the water? Be cool dear ones! And thanks for the honorary title!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

You got that right. But you may have to lie down.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

You do look refreshingly cool... how about sending me that sandbar when you're done with it. Oh, and I'll need the stream too.

(overnight them if you can Gizmo cause it's supposed to be over 100 here the next couple of days... yeah, over 100 freakin' degrees AGAIN!)

Stella said...

Hey Gizmo,

That situation you have looks pretty wonderful to me. I don't know how we are doin' it, we are just doin' it! But you, you have the best thing of all!

Mack said...

Oh yeah! That looks so refreshing!
Stay cool rotts!


Greyhounds CAN Sit said...

Living in New Zealand we have the opposite problem right now. It's nothing like hot enough to sit on a sandbar. But that sure does look like the perfect way to cool off:)

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Gizmo, you look so cool in the water. The only water I have tried is my bath and I didn't like it. I hope I like swimming more. No worries, and love, Stella

Finn said...

So nice!! We'll be right over!

Molly the Airedale said...

You are one smart doggie, Gizmo! That's a great way to stay cool!

Love ya lots

Hey Gizmo,

The weather in Singapore is so hot and humid so the best way to stay cool is to soak my butt in a bucket of ice! Bliss!


Unknown said...

OOH!!! Nice nice nice!!!
I bet Orah would love a nice cool dip in the stream!

houndstooth said...

We're staying in the a/c Gizmo! That's about the only help for it. Oh, and eating Frosty Paws!

We saw that commercial on TV last night, you know the one, and just cracked up thinking about Bart!


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

You Certainly have the bestest way to cool down. I am surprised though, I thought there would be STEAM comin off your furs.

Sweet William The Scot said...

Gizmo ~ Are you peeing in the water?

Re: Pic #1... THOSE EYES! THAT TONGUE! OY! I'm having Gizmo withdrawals!!! I need to kiss him NOW!!!!

Elaine Pritchard said...

That looks really cool.

Not that hot here, but when I get warm I like to lie on a cool wooden floor indoors best of all.

Love and licks, Winnie

Backcountry Brodie said...

I'm with you, Gizmo! Gib me a big ole watering hole to kewl off my furs in any day! (Eggsept fur the baf - that dussn't count.)

Gosh Gizmo, you are so handsome -- possibly even moreso in that stream. Glad you're staying cool! We are eating doggie popsicles over here!

Wow -- I feel cooler just looking at those pictures. Oh, maybe it's because it's only 66 degrees out....either way -- great pics!

SASS....Sammy Andy Shelly Sierra said...

Our mama had a couple of rotties in years past (before apartment living and arthritis).

They were Bailey (RIP) and Shelby (RIP). Sammy knew Shelby, but Andy and Shelly came much later and didn't know him......:(

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

I'll trade your method of cooling off over our AC, any day!

Cowspotdog said...

Love that tongue sticking out !!! That does look like a great way to cool off - especially after walking to get there

Marjie said...

You have a really pretty stream there. Watch out for what my humans call "sunburn" there, Gizmo! Move to the shade!


♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Ahhhh, that looks so refreshing to us. We are doing our best to stay cool, but it means staying inside all day and all night:(

My Mind's Eye said...

KB said...

K and R are SO jealous. That looks luxurious to a labrador!

We've been feeling so bad for everyone in this heatwave. Because we live at such high elevation, it's never truly hot here. But, on the flip side, we have to endure -20 deg days in the winter. So, we get our bad days too!

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Boy that looks so cool!!! You are so good looking Gizmo.
Yes a strange dog is going to invade Happy's happy home and poor girl she is stuck on the floor b/c she can't jump up any more. I worry about this big time. I surely hope every thing will go smooth. I also hope she is cute!! lol
xx, Fern

FiveSibesMom said...

LOVE those pics of you, Gizmo!!! It must have felt refreshing, especially in this heat we've been having. The FiveSibes have been snoozing in the a/c and dipping in their kiddie pool and getting sprayed by the hose by Mom (tee-hee!)

violett said...

Hehehe, this is the right attitude! Move not so much in the heat and cool the rear

Ms. ~K said...

Thank you for that cool down moment! :)

ForPetsSake said...

That looks so cooling! We're hiding in the a/c with the blinds drawn barely moving...

greygirl25 said...

That's the best way to cool off.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and leaving kind words for Clancy.

And thank you for stopping by the blog so frequently. I really appreciate it.


Maxmom said...

That's the way to chill, Gizmo!
The other option is to come and visit us...it's freezing here!

Lucy-Fur, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

We've been going to the pond less this summer (mostly because it's a 2 mile walk to it, and -get this- it's too hot to walk there!!!), so we've been staring at a lot of pictures of us in mid-winter, and trying to visualize the cool! ;-)

Unknown said...

Hiya Gizmo -

Psst here's a little secret.

If you want to see more of Orah, she's here (daily): http://rottietales.blogspot.com/

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Today is the day they bring her!! I so hope she falls in love love with me and will want to please me. If that happens she will except Happy as a pack member and not hurt her. I will expect the coons will take a lot longer. They did with Bambi!!!
xx, Fern
