The Dog Days of Summer

It officially hit 102 degrees today.

Webster defines "dog day" as...

1. the period between early July and early September when the hot sultry weather of summer usually occurs in the northern hemisphere

2. a period of stagnation or inactivity.

It sure has been hot sultry weather, and the air patterns are in a period of stagnation. I know it gets like this every year, but this year I am tired of it. I am proud of the dogs. They are doing well. Dove is expecting, and I can't imagine being pregnant in this weather, but she has not been cranky. Mostly everyone lays low during the day and is playful in the mornings and evenings. I am looking forward to a good rain storm!
