Beating the Heat - Dog and Cat Style

Until today's nice, steady rain, we had quite a warm and dry week here.
Mia was looking for a drink in the fountain, and met with great disappointment.
But one to make lemonade when she finds lemons, she made the birdbath into a cat nap bath.
Later, all the cats were trying to nap in the same shady spot on the driveway. A rare time together.
Jock found his special place on the work site to cool himself off. This also required an extra cooling off when he needed a shower to re-enter the house.
Even the cats came to see the work on the hill, and Snickers again was looking to aggravate the dog by following him around the fields, shadowing his every move. Notice Jock's slumped shoulders??
And notice Snickers is as pleased as punch with her curly tail proudly held high.
Jock just doesn't understand that imitation is the highest form of flattery.
