Nothing Like A Sunset Swim

Today was one of those days where you could hardly breathe outside. The temperature was 88 degrees, but it was the dew point that was so intolerable. It had to be close to 70 degrees. By 10:00 this morning I saw Brutus standing in his empty purple pool digging for the water, so I headed right out and started filling it up. He was definitely going to need it! Don and I had to go to Eau Claire today to run some errands, so we shut the garage door all but about three feet, put a big dish of ice water in the garage and made sure the pool was full before we left. Brutus prefers to hang out on the garage floor during warm weather because the cement stays nice and cool.

By tonight, the humidity had even gotten to the garage floor, and it looked like someone had left the water hose running in the garage, so I decided to take Brutus down to the lake for a nice cool swim. He was more than willing. I rarely have him on his leash anymore, and he pretty much stays in the front of the house unless we are in the back yard, but I walked out the front door and said "Brutus, do you want to go to the lake?" and he was gone.

Enjoy, and here's hoping for a big old thunder storm to clear this air. :)
