Mollie, Jake and Hazel: Hi all! We are blogging today. Kate’s recovering from too much picnicking.
Hazel: Yep, there’s been a heat wave here and she had two outside picnics with humid mid-90 degree weather. She doesn’t have a nice fur coat to insulate her so she gets hot and cranky.
Jake: Yeah! Me, I just love to lie under the big pine trees when it’s hot. They are so cool and once in a while you find a luscious rabbit there too. It’s heaven. She should try that!
Mollie: There is nothing worse than a bunch of hot, sweaty humans all clumped together.
Hazel: Did you ever notice how smelly that gets?
Mollie: It may be the beer too. Suds all over the place. I don’t know why they just don’t barbecue some nice kibble.
Jake: How would you get that on a skewer?
Mollie: Not my problem. I’m the idea person remember? You figure it out. Maybe make a salad out of some fresh catnip greens. There have been a lot of those lying around. I love summertime.
Hazel: Kate was all beside herself about the resident frog too. She couldn’t find him but he was croaking in the ground cover by the patio.
Jake: Not sure what she sees in that frog. He’s all green and really smelly, like fish but not the good eating kind that comes in a can.
Hazel: Yeah, she keeps hoping for tadpoles but we don’t need any more pets. We are enough! More for us!
Mollie: That reminds me – how did our pond fish get out of the can? I see them on the label of the cans in the closet but there they are swimming in our pond.
Jake: Must be some sort of miracle. Maybe like those tubes she calls hot dogs. Never saw a dog shaped like that. They don’t bark either.
Mollie: Humans! Good thing they have opposable thumbs and can open cans or we would have to take over things.
Mollie, Jake and Hazel: That’s all! Kate will return!
