hot dogs in more than one way!

hi every bloggie!

It's so hot here! It was ~80 degrees at night yesterday! Mango was sending out distress signals too! Whew! It's unbearable! but it doesn't mean the fun stops for me! Mom's co-worker had a cookout. He lives in New Hampshire! I heard he has bears, fisher cats, and other wildlife in his backyard. But this is all I saw. I think these creatures are called beer suckers.
This is Gary. He invited me over. His official breed type is called a vodka leech.
And finally some attention. Leave it to Tula's mom, Fun Aunt Dee to give me a treat. I know how to work her good.
And that's more like it. Photo sessions with me! This is Cathy. She thought I was a small dog until she met me. Couldn't get over my daddy long legs. I am one tall drink of water for my size.
And finally.. new fur friends. Taz is dog friendly. Me I'm chase friendly. I chased Taz under the house. Silly, it's so much cooler under there anyways.
But then he got brave. One lil swat and arched back at me and he thinks he's the boss.
Look at him messing with me. This game of hide and seek is fun though.

But it was too hot to keep it up. We headed over to the pool for a dip. The humans were more like buoys than swimmers. I went in but mom didn't get a photo. My practice with the frogs has paid off.
But I was a bit distracted by the two fuzzbutts who lived at the pool. Bo is the pomeranian and that's Max the shitzu. He was camera shy so mom only got his forehead. Nice work blog photographer. I thought you were a professional.

Finally the food bags go on! Hey! no seat at the table for me?? What kind of party is this?

Oh well I preferred the vinca! It made a nice place to pee and cool off on!
I was one hot dog hoping to get a hot dog at the cook out. No luck but lots of fun.


  1. Looks like a great party Norwood.

    Creatures called beer suckers? LOL!! I never knew!!!

    Hugs and belly rubs.

  3. We got hung up on that first sentence. 80 - at night? Whew. We think it is bad when we get 80 during the day.

  4. What a bummer you missed out on a hotdog, Norwood but at least you had fun for a way too hot day!
    We're ready for some snow!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  5. A pool!!!! Looks like everyone had a good time and how could they not, you were there!


  6. You are very brave. I don't even want to be in the shade and I finally convinced momma to leave the AC on all night last night. Watch out for those beer suckers. They can start doing weird things, especially when it is hot.

    Stay cool, my friend, tomorrow should be better.


  7. Looks like a good time Norwood. Kevin & Sharon finally got back last night. I am so glad!
    I'll be seeing you more often now.
    your pal,

  8. Looks like a great way to spend a hot afternoon. You just make friends wherever you go, don't you?! We think it's your dashing good looks and endless charm. Yes, you learned well from dem froggies. :)


  9. Wow what a wonderful wonderful time..Stay cool 89 oer cent humidity when i awoke whew!!

  10. Great party and commentary. Beer suckers, fuzzbuts - -- interesting
    creatures. We especially like the picture of you in the vinca.
    Ernie & Sasha

  11. what a great time - it looks like a great time

    we love cookouts

    Woodrow - Sweetie - MJ

  12. What a virtual zoo!

    Depending what is available at the watering hole, my mom khan be either of those khritters!

    She is also known to be a AGJsipper too!

    I'm glad woo had FUN!

    PeeEssWoo: I hope woo khan keep an eye on Mango fur me! I'm worried this heat is way too much fur him!

  13. What a nice commentary on the 2 leggers party time. I can't believe they didn't give a hot dog a hot dog just because you really are one hot dog!

    Love you in the vinca vine. Just don't get your tu tu tangled!

    Keep makin' fun-'cuz I've found that fun don't make itself.
    Chester :0=)

    But.....did you eat something of all those yummy food on the table????
    Hope yes!!!!!!!!!!!
    Great photos and wonderful post!!
    Sweet kisses and licks and hope today is more fresh!!!!

  16. It is very common for it to be 90 or higher here in July and August at 8:00 at night. This summer has been different - we think maybe a lot of our hot air made it your way:) Looks like a great picnic, too bad about the hot dog, but Taz looked pretty interesting.

  17. Beer suckers and vodka leeches??? I would be wary about swimming in that pool. I understand they sometimes lose control after an afternoon in the sun and sucking and leeching. whatever you do, don't drink the water.

  18. Hi, Norwood!
    Looks like everyone there had a pawesome time!
    Beer suckers and vodka leeches are interesting breeds!
    Last night... 11:30 pm we had 102 degrees!
