Rain Dance

It has been brutally dry in South Florida. We are now in the midst of drought conditions, with warnings about wild fires and water conservation. South Florida has not had this kind of a dry spell since 1932.

On the morning news, residents are cautioned not to pull off the road onto areas of dry grass, lest a hot exhaust pipe set everything ablaze.

The palm trees are still green. And they offer a bit of shade.

There are patches of green around the heads of the underground water systems. Nice for nosing around.

Even a very short walk makes the fountains look more appealing than usual.

Good thing there is a fountain in your condo. Have a swim there! On hot days like that, I just like to stay indoors. If mum is working at home, she has the air-conditioning on in her home office - my fav spot on a hot day!

So in Texas, over at Addie and Lucie's, they are wishing for the rain to stop, and you are wishing for it to start. We wish y'all could come to some kind of arrangement!

Your Pals,

We agree more rain would be a good thing. Angle Paws is strating to resemble the dust bowl.

Wow, we did not realize it was so bad. And all our snow is melting up here. Do you want me to ship the water down to you?

We will pray for rain for you, Madison! It's too early in the year for a drought!

Love ya lots,

Hey, girl!

We're catching up, and not a bit surprised you are popular with the male (and female) pups at the bark park. Of COURSE you are.

Hope you get some good rain soon.

Goober love,
