Wordless Wednesday - Trying to Beat the Heat

P.S. We totally won the video competition for the best birthday greeting for El'bow! Thanks for all your votes and Happy Birthday El'bow!

Oh I really don't know why all you hot dogs in the USA don;t just come to stay in Scotland for the summer! It's really quite a warm day here, the sun has been up (behind the cloud) for several hours and at 10:25 am the temperature is 59 degrees Fahrenheit!
Toodle pip!

Mr Koda MD said...

I didnt know getting hosed was so tiring! Although I suppose if its 50 million degrees its bound to get a bit exhausting for a big fellow such as yourself Mango

Great pool

El'bow and Hauwii said...

why doesnt mom let you fill the pool?

El'bow & Hauwii

Niamh said...

Mango, we have two words for you: air conditioning! We love splashing around in pools but tell your momma to crank up the ac. We would not survive the heat without it.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

It looks like you've got a plan!!

Lola said...

Hey, Scotland is sounding great. I could do zoomies in that weather. I'm glad you're keeping cool Mango. I'm glad that my humans are keeping the AC going, although I hope we don't go broke because of it. Water is just not a happy option for Shar Pei. We won't even go out when the sprinkler's on, even though it only does a little of the yard at a time.

lotsa licks, Lola

Sewmouse said...

Mango Momma is watering the Mango? Is he not large enough already?

When Kili's Momma waters the plants, they grow bigger! (Then I eat them)

hold still you damn dog


Maggie Mae said...

I hopes that it cools off for you soon. This really has been a summer to remember...or forget!

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

We'll take the fan over the water. Makes us think too much about baths. Hope you have gotten a bit of a cooldown. Not so here:(

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Priscilla said...

Congrats on winning the video competition for El'bow's birthday! You totally deserve it!

Hope you have cooler days to come!

Kira The BeaWootiful and Mom said...

Woooos! Water from the hose, I love drinking it too, but like playing chase with it, catch me with the water if woo can!

Mango, if you get into the pool and slobber - does your slobber float or sink? Inquiring minds want to know...

Mimi and CC Cabana said...

Congratulations on your win! Our temp today is supposed to be a high of 73 degrees, zero humidity, very comfy. Come visit us, Mango and Dexter, we'll share our "cool" with you! But don't bring your heat here--I don't like sweating while standing still.

Rufus and Indie said...

Nothing like a splash day to stay coOoOoOoOl!!!

Rufus and Indie

Heather and Ellie said...

I'll try not to brag, but up in Shutesbury it's oh so cool with the temps usually at 80 at the highest. :)

Hope it gets cooler for you soon!

Frankie Furter said...

mayziegal said...

Well, I'm glad you likes to cool down with waters but there is no way - even if I lived on the SUN - that I would lets water from a hose touch my Most Delicate brindle furs. (shudder!) It must be okay for you since you have manly brindle furs.

And congrats on winning the birthday card contest! I'm not surprised though. Your song was BEE-YOU-TEE-FULL!

Penny and Patches said...

Congrats on winning the El'bow birthday contest!

We like your way of beating the heat better than ours! All we get is fresh water in our bowls 8,253,000 times a day! It's times like these when our mom REALLY misses our dad. He always took care of the dog water and potty times!

Penny & Patches

dogsmom said...

Congrats on winning the card competition. Always knew you had special talents.
Tell Mom to just hold that hose still. You'll do the rest. Running water is more fun that the pool.

Benny and Lily said...

Yea!! We are happee you won the video contest. Dive in and stay cool in your neat-o pool
Benny & Lily

Tessa the Maltese said...

Nessa, Nanook and Pooka said...

Dear Mango - just wanted to let you know we're thinking about you, buddy, and we hope your seizures are few and far between.

Lotsa licks,

Nanook and Pooka

houndstooth said...

Tell the truth! Did you just put that first picture in so that somebody would comment about your big hose? Well, I'm not falling for it! The pool is looking pretty good right now, though!


Kari in WeHo said...

Hoses and fans are great cool down tools :)

Busby and Raymond said...

When is your weather going to cool off? December?

Marjie said...

I sleep on the central air conditioner vent in the floor. Sometimes I put my snoot over it and the iciness is great!


Lorenza said...

I love your way to beat the heat!
Congratulations on winning El´bow's contest!
Kisses and hugs

Sugar the Golden Retriever said...

Woof! Woof! 1st Golden Congrats to you. YES it's HOT ... it is expected it Summer. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

It's been HOT here, too, and so we've been swimming almost every day (except for when Mom and Dad went off to drive cars around parking lots..). My mutant sister went from being a wader to a swimmer yesterday, and sheesh, she's a total ball hog... Congrats on the contest, and I hope you keep cool!

We're happy for you and your family,

Florence, Nana, Uyanga.

Peppy Sheppys said...

Did your mama say a four letter word? We love it! Except that all of us are afraid of the hose. We are big stinkin' babies.

JackDaddy said...

MMMMMMM, slobber water! Nothing better! :)

Moose said...

No category you can think of... Swimming? Weather?
Anywho- glad you pups are staying cool. I do love a dip in the kiddie Pool but momma gets annoyed because she fills it up and I will only go in it once. If the same water is in it next time I am outside I will not go in it! Can you blame me? It is full of drools?

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

You 2 sure have that cooling of thing all figured out.. Hey Mom can we have a pool like Mango?

OMD! You guys have the same pool as ours! We wuv to play in it!
Thank you fur visiting our blog. We wonder if our friend Xena will grow to be as big as Mango? (Note to self Samantha: better be nicer to Xena, otherwise if she gets as big as Mango, I am in trouble...)

If my momma ever calls me a "damn dawg" like yours did in the video, I'm asta la vista baby. Outta here. Ciao etc etc. Wait, come to think of it, that's exactly what I did yesterday, and I wasn't even called any names except for "Twiiiiiiiiiiiiiinkiiiiiieee" "Ohhh Twiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinki" you get it.
