So we made it through three days of Dutch-melting heat without melting. The weather people said it hasn't been this hot since 1927, and even then it still wasn't this hot. If you live in a place with 80s and 90s weather and are still alive, you are totally my hero. 


When I saw this sign about shorts yesterday, I asked Steve to ask Google if we're melting because of global warming. I'm not 100% sure, but I think the answer was yes. This got Dutch all worried because he "cannot survive another single minute of melting". 

Not another single minute? Seriously. Why does he always have to be so... dramatic?

Anyway. So I asked the dude inside the store with the shorts sign how you're supposed to prepare for global warming if you're furry and don't wear clothes. Dude had no idea, but suggested we head to the beach where it's not so hot. Or wait another few weeks for the fog to come, then buy something fleecey to keep warm. 

Dutch seemed cool with the dude's ideas and promised to stop worrying. I also might have told him worrying just makes you melt faster. Yeah, I know. But sometimes during a crisis you have to say things that aren't exactly true. Especially if somebody's about to melt and you still have to walk home.

And everything was totally ok until we walked out of the shorts store and saw this:

Of course now Dutch is all worried about live pants. Uh huh. Live. Pants. And not just any live pants, dangerous live pants.


No freaking idea.

You are the king of finding weird things. How can PANTS be dangerous? Could that have been a typo? Perhaps someone put an "N" where the "R" should have been?

Oh, Pug, I feel your pain. I'm a pug too. Mostly pug. My fur is longer than normal pug fur so I've been extra, extra melty lately.

And then the heat is an extra hassle because when I find a patch of shade to sit and rest in on our walks, people all think I'm "adorable", whatever that is, and they all want to touch me. I don't like being touched by people I don't know. I don't like that *at all*. So my human has to fend everyone off and keep them away from me and we both just want the fog back!

Yours in solidarity,
Stella Pug

With all the naked butts you've seen there, I can imagine pants being dangerous! Maybe those naked butt people would have an idea of how you can keep cool when you don't wear clothes, Puglet. Though maybe not since they don't really seem to have much fur!

It's not global warming, we are still freezing here.
Mama worries our heating cost is too much this month again = less treats.

So THAT is where our Dad gets his pants! I know his are dangerous. They growl and roar sometimes but they have a nice perfume - to us. Not so much for Mom cause she calls him bad words.
