trying to stay cool

Remember my chewing stick? Guess what? It's not a stick at all. It's an umbrella. It's a lousy one, though, because it doesn't keep me dry when it rains. And it doesn't keep me cool in the sun, either, so it's really kind of useless (except for chewing on, I guess).Next to the umbrella, there is another worthless object. It's a drinking bowl, but I can't even reach it. You think someone woud be kind enough to put a chair or stool beside it so I could drink the water.
But oh, no. Motch just laughs at me and takes pictures while I'm trying to take care of my physical needs. I'm roasting in the heat and dying of thirst and what does she do? Snaps picture after picture.

I'm going to call the SSAP (or whoever) to file a complaint.

That is a rather worthless tree and water bowl. You need to get your chair over there so you can take advantage of that water...

I think Motch needs a lesson on what is really important.

Stanislaw said...

Careful Petra!! That looks like it could be a bath in disguise!!

Mack said...

Pretty Petra,

You are looking so longingly at that bird bath!

I know you really want to catch a birdie don't you!!??

Lorenza said...

Hi, Petra!
You have there a funny umbrella!
And that water bowl sure is high! We need a plan to let you reach that water!
Kisses and hugs

What a ridiculous doggy bowl that is Petra. Someone should shorten it so doggies can drink.
We hope it cools down for you soon.

Hugs and tail wags

What was Motch thinking when she brought you that water bowl. Did she think your legs were going to get long like stilts? What is a matter with these humans?

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Yeah. I think you need to file a consumers complain on those things that are not useful to you at all

We agree with you, Petra! That is pretty rude to put that water dish so high you can't reach it! Such unthoughtfulness!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

I could see why she likes taking your picture so muc, but why in the world is your water up so high? You should knock it over!

it's the ASPCA - american society for the prevention of cruelty to animals. i would know; i've logged several complaints. they don't seem to realize yet that having a brother like the one i have IS cruelty!

Stay cool, Petra. We feel your pain. It's been in the 100's for the past 5 days, here. Ugh! Everydoggie (and mom and pop) have just been laying around watching movies and keeping hydrated with something called Guinness. Pop says he loves the umbrella!

Hey Petra~
I'm sending you a note to give you a heads-up about a pup virus that's making it way through IL. It causes some serious sad tummies. Pupi and I have been suffering from it all morning, and the vet told my mom that's its been going around. Steer clear of the bark parks for a while!

The Puppies said...

Petra- you need a couple of steps and then you could have drinks all day long!! Hope it cools off soon!!

Stanley said...


You can't blame Motch. She's mesmerized by your cuteness, and she's right for recording all that cuteness for the world to see.

I think you need a new water bowl, though.

Goober love,
