Sydney Dog's Top 5 Ways to Beat the Summer Heat  
It's been a while since I've done a fuzzy dog picture post and I thought it was long overdue - so I got out my digital and followed the poor fuzzy dog around the house this afternoon. It was unusually hot and humid today - even for summer and I thought it would be nice for Sydney to share her secrets for staying cool this summer. :)


Top Five Ways To Beat the Summer Heat
By Sydney Dog :)


1. Always try to keep cool by staying in strategic areas of the house.
Note: refrigerators have the extra nice benefit of possible falling goodies. ;)


2. Always keep hydrated by drinking LOTS of water and occasionally begging (how demeaning) for an ice cube or two. :)


3. Always remember that fans in the house are there for you to block! It's your duty as a fuzzy dog to block the wind from any and all fans in the house on hot days like today. ;)


4. When all other cooling options have failed, popsicles work wonders and aside from making your tongue red, will provide a refreshing way to cool off this summer. :)


5. Don't forget to check the weather forecast on Weather.Com.
Looks like tomorrow will be another scorcher! :( *SIGH*
Repeat steps 1-5 all over again tomorrow! :P


Hope you all have a nice evening! :)

I'm so cool too bad I'm a loser: sarah the dogaudienceawaits on August 22nd, 2005 12:37 pm (UTC)
Seriously, your dog is so incredibly cute! My mom and I were talking to these people are on street last night with a dog just Sydney! She is so cute!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 24th, 2005 10:08 am (UTC)
Aww, thanks Gill! She's such a ham! :)

Those are adorable...I especially love the one in front of the fan. :)
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 24th, 2005 10:08 am (UTC)
Thanks Karen! :) And it's funny because I couldn't get her away from the fan, even after the picture was taken - she refused to move! :)
Sabine: Micki's placesabine10 on August 22nd, 2005 01:48 pm (UTC)
Say Sydney thank you from me for sharing her secrets (I'll tell Micki about them) and that she is a smart Sheltie Lady. :)

Sydney really is an adorable dog and that a great photos. I esp. love the third picture and still a bit more the last one. Thanks for posting them!

Hope you have a nice day, Sheri. :) *Hugs* to you and Sydney
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 24th, 2005 10:10 am (UTC)
Awww! I will definitely thank Sydney for you. :) I think she and Micki would make great friends if they ever met (though Sydney might be a bit shy... she's pretty wary of other dogs at first)

Thanks for your sweet comments, Sabine! :D Big *HUGS* to you, Micki, and Garry! Hope you're having a nice week! :D

She's a smart puppy, she knows how to stay cool. :)
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 24th, 2005 10:11 am (UTC)
Haha! And how to stay in the perfect area for falling treats! ;)

Too cute! I just read about Doggie popsicles too. Is this just a regular popsicle? Yum.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 24th, 2005 10:14 am (UTC)
This was a regular popsicle! :) Sydney loves the strawberry ones (they're her favorite!) I think she also likes the grape ones too! :) I hadn't heard that they made doggie popsicles now! How neat! :D

YAY, YAY, YAY, How I miss the fuzzy dog, and yet we have never met! Thanks so much for posting those pictures.

I LOVE the popcycle one!
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 24th, 2005 10:16 am (UTC)
Awww, thanks Stacey! Your comment before reminded me that it had been a while since I followed the fuzzy dog around with my camera. :)

Heh. What a cookie puss---you know, face sweeter than a cookie. Love my paps, but Syd makes me miss my own needle beak, Bee.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 24th, 2005 10:17 am (UTC)
Awww, thanks so much - that's so sweet of you to say! :)
Carriecarrieh on August 22nd, 2005 08:58 pm (UTC)
Love the photos and the last three make Sydney look so full of mischief.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 24th, 2005 10:20 am (UTC)
Thanks Carrie! And you know, the fuzzy photos would never be complete without the look of mischief! Sydney does that look so well, too! ;)

Oh my goodness! The cuteness! :D

Sydney reminds me of Sunny in her staying cool / watching for falling treats. :)

We call Sunny the air conditioning hog... when we're in the car, she wiggles her way up from the back seat in between us so she can stand with the full blast of the A/C right on her.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on August 24th, 2005 10:23 am (UTC)
Haha! That's SO cute about Sunny and the air conditioner! :) I've always thought that if we got an air conditioner for our house, Sydney would stand it front of the vent all day long and if it oscillated, she'd move with it. ;)
