It's SO hot! 

How hot is it? 

I don't know.

But I do know that it's not as hot as it was in Arizona.

Remember to drink lots of water.

And stay in the shade when you go on your walk.
Even if something does smell really good
on the other side of the road!

We haven't been to the park in a few days
because someone hit the tall guy when he was driving home
and he had to borrow a car from the car place
and they won't let me ride in it.
Something about all the fuzz that's coming off my butt 
because it's so hot.

But it's ok,
we still gots lots of places to walk around here.

Stay cool!!

Why did the cowboy get a pet dachshund?

Cause he wanted to
get a long little doggy!

And with that in mind, welcome to the

We have a LOT of riders for your enjoyment today! 

We'll start with Oreo and Addy.
Such style, such grace.
And Addy can even balance a ball while she rides.

"Hanging off the horse's nose" trick!


And now, all the way from across the ocean
is Blogville's own

That's some fine showmanship there ER!

Now we've got a special treat.

you got going on there!

We can't forget our feline friends.
Here's our own Diva Madi showing us

That's ok.  I think she brought along her spare tiara 
just in case!

Now we go to the group ridin' doggies.
First up, is Lassie and Benji.

Doing the ever popular "Grab the cookies" trick.
Good job!!

Let's hear it for Bilbo, Dory, Arty AND Jakey.
Showing us HOW IT'S DONE!

just for all the Blogville friends,
we've got
CHESTER from Winnipeg
doing his very special riding trick:

There you go.
It's the amazing 
"Curled up in a ball on the floor of the car"
riding trick!
How does he do it?
Kids, don't try that at home!

How about a really big hand for all of our riders!

 (Well, I'm not so sure about THAT!)

Thanks to everyone who took part in the trick riding.

Don't forget about the Blogville Rodeo
coming up on July 9th!

Maybe there will be a prize for the fastest toy de-stuffer!

Or "The most happy smile after pulling out the fuzz from a brand new toy" trophy.

Or the "Most stuff left on the lawn for the tall guy to have to pick up before he can mow the grass" award.

Or a "Just bypass the store and give me a $10 bill to chew up instead" ribbon.


How about a "Let's find out what is REALLY inside a pink unicorn" medal?

Come on.  I gotta win something!

Who turned off the air conditioning?

For some reason, it turned VERY hot here a few days ago.  It got so hot that I don't even want to go on a long walk.  I'd rather go on a short walk and find somewhere in the shade to sit and take in the smells.

So, whoever it was that turned off the coolness,
would you please turn it back on?  I will tell the tall guy to send you some money to help pay your electrisical bill!

PS:  Don't forget about the Blogville Rodeo.
You still have time to send your pictures to the tall guy for the trick riding.  You can get the 4-1-1 here:

I smell something exciting!
(which is much better than when the tall guy says I smell frightening.)

Blogville is having a RODEO!!

And look-ee there!!

The tall guy and I have been put in charge of the trick writing.

So if you can do any special kind of writing, 
heck, even if you can write at all,
please send your ...
Are you sure?

I've just been informed by the tall guy that it's not trick WRITING,
it's trick RIDING!

Oh, well that makes more sense then.

So if you think you'd like to do this:

or this:

or even this:

make sure you get your pictures to the tall guy
by July 2, 2015
so you can be part of the trick RIDING event
at the Blogville Rodeo!

The tall guy said you can send your pictures to
and please put
"TRICK RIDING" as the subject of the email.

PS.  Maybe we can do the trick writing at the NEXT rodeo!!

I just wanted to help!

The plumb-er came to fix the drippy sink.  I think it has been drippy for like 3 months now, but for some reason the tall guy decided he needed to get it fixed TODAY!  So, he called the plumb-er.  I don't know why he didn't call the drip-er, but anyway.

I was all excited because I thought I was going to get to help and look what happened.  I got stuck outside.  For like 201 hours while the plumb-er was fixing the drip.  Actually it was like 10 minutes, but I COULD'VE been stuck outside if the plumb-er had taken a long time.
 I was going to hand him all the renches and screwdrivers and stuff, but no.  I was being a new-sense, so I had to go outside.  I could've come back inside through my dog window, but I know that when the tall guy gives me that LOOK, that it was better for me to stay outside for a while.

So now we have no drippy faucets, which is good so that we won't waste water.  Now if we can just get someone to come clean out all the leafs from the gutters, the tall guy will be happy!
