Hanging Out On My Deck With My Canine Companions


Bella, Alex, and Dexter (L to R)

Cynthia, the designated photographer in our home, was able to capture this picture with our 3 canine companions.  Well, maybe it was me taking the picture.  I look at it this way: if pictures look amazing, Cynthia took them; if pictures look terrible, then I took them.  You be the judge of that since I am not too sure which one of us took this photo.

Alex is asleep. Bella and Dexter are on guard duty.

Dogs with short hair like Alex, Bella, and Dexter usually love to sun bathe, but please do not leave your dogs unattended.  After they have breakfast, I take them out to the deck so they can enjoy the sun and relax for a couple of minutes.  They go out again in the afternoon for a few minutes, usually shorter than in the morning, since we are usually in the basement which is nice and cool and we all want to warm up a bit.  Please, be very diligent with your dogs during this hot Summer and do not expose them to too much heat.  Have a great week!

      Oh, tell me about it! I am waking up at 6am in order to walk my dogs so we avoid the heat.

    Cute dogs! Interesting to learn that short-haired dogs like to sunbathe. I thought it was just my dog, Bandit. He’s a Boston Terrier mix and no matter the temperature, he loves to lay on the deck in the sun. When it appears he is getting too hot, I tell him to “go lay in the shade” and he knows what that means. And we also hang out in the basement, then go outside to warm up.

      You too? Great. There are some dark short hair dogs that do not like to sun bathe for too long, but Dexter is not one of them. Unlike you, I have to bring them in otherwise they’ll move from the shaded area and go to sun bathe again even if they are panting. Naughty children!
