    DefaultDuke enjoys sun bathing, even in this heat

    This afternoon it's 101 degrees yet every time I let them out back Duke heads for a sunny spot to bask. He does this year round but in 101 degrees? Perhaps it feels good on his aging bones. It gives a new meaning to hot dog.

    Now I am going to have to take a pic.

    Hershey Kisses does that on almost any nice day. But when it is unbearable hot, humid, and sunny, she lays down in the middle of the asphalt driveway in the full sun. I do not understand it. The only thing I ever came up with is that the driveway is too hot for her paws, so she lays down. naw! She not that dumb.

    My guys sunbathe daily too, then they cool off in the pool and go back to sunbathing. It's their typical routine on my days off.

    Ed, OMG... that sounds like Lexi! Could be the scorching hot & where do I find her laying, in the middle of the black asphalt driveway. All I can do is shake my head, I have no clue what makes her want to do this. Though she is smart enough to know when she is too hot & will move to her hole under the azelea bush or into the carport.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    Judy has always done that, even when she was younger. I always tell her she's working on her tan.

    Bauer does it too, and normally lays in about the same position Duke is in. One day last week he went out and was rolling around in the crispy grass, then settled on his back (laying out there . . . wheels up . . . he looked dead). I was afraid he would get sunburned on his belly so I made him come in .

    Some people are like slinkies. Not really good for much, but bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.
