Whew! It's been hot, humid and everly so stifling. I spend a lot of time either panting or sleeping or both. Mom keeps my water bowl full, and I empty it. Then she fills it again. I'm very well hydrated, but (as you know) what goes in, comes out. I make several potty runs to the planters outside to keep up with the program.

Potty runs means making friends. Yesterday morning I met Dexter. He belongs to my friend, Tina, who has an insurance agency on the second floor. He's just a little bigger than me, with wild and crazy reddish blonde hair that goes every which way, and he smiles a lot. I think he's Cairn, mostly, but I'm not sure even he knows. We get along very well. I think this could be the start of a long and happy relationship. We should have gotten a picture. Darn. I'll keep you posted.

Maxie and I visited for a while on the third floor. She's Hector's new Border Collie. She's naturally very bright and already knows when to say "O U T" and she's maybe 4 or 5 months old. We always say "Hello" to each other even if our doors are closed. Just a quick "Hi there girlfriend!" (which sounds like "arf arf" to you) and we get back to work.

"Siberecula" is Mom's way of saying we're out here in the boonies. She's even given me a Russian name - Martina Margaretova Dogbonovich - in keeping with the Russian theme. While my Grandpa had heat and sunshine yesterday, by the time we left the office at 4:30PM, it was thundering and lightning and raining. Mom was on tornado watch, not that we'd get one but it was pretty "Oz-like" out there. Today will probably be the same.

Shannon's on vacation until the 21st. Her birthday is on the 20th, and she's in Las Vegas. We heard it was like 117° or something. Ew! And my Uncle Jason's birthday is TODAY, the 16th. AND my Uncle Nick's is on the 17th, AND my Uncle Greg's is on the 24th. That's a lot of birthday cake out there.

Have a great day!

We have decided you mom, our Auntie Michele, has missed her calling. She should be an author or biographies.
