The dog days of summer

The heat the last week has been unbearable. Especially living in a condo that does not have central air. We had naively thought that moving north (from Utah) would provide a reprieve from the hot desert heat. Ha! Boy, were we wrong.

Yesterday's temperature crept upwards of 100 degrees. As we drove through town around 4pm, one of the local banks was displaying 103. The news last night reassured us that these temperatures are not normal. Most of the West is being blanketed by temperatures twenty degrees hotter than average.

We are wishing for the closing on the new house to speed readily towards us. So that we can finish off the summer sitting comfortably amidst the central air and furnished basement. Until then, we all find our ways to maintain some comfort, although far from our ideals.

Both dogs manage to place themselves in the direct path of one of our three fans, soaking in as much breeze as they can and managing to find the most cushy spot possible.

Now that looks like the good life.

I just think it's the cutest thing when dogs lay their head on all their paws. I've often thought if I come back in another life as anything, I'd like for it to be a dog (to a home like yours or ours, of course!) So sorry your condo doesn't have CA. What kind of place doesn't automatically put that in these days??? Hoping for that speedy closing for you all.

How cute are those pictures! I would hate to have a fur coat amongst those temperatures! Looks like he's found his bed....where do you guys sleep? j/k :)

Apparently the pooches have the right idea... sleep, dream you're in Siberia. I hope the closing happens sooner rather than later, and sorry about the no CA.... that may be something you guys might mention to C's bosses about a bad thing in way of the condo. Just a thought.
