Elle wants you to know that these are indeed the DOG DAYS OF SUMMER! Or as the song says “Hot Times in the Summer Time”.

WOW IS IT HOT HERE IN TEXAS!!!!! Tomorrow marks 40 some days of heat registering OVER 100 degrees with another WEEK of the same in the forecast. Often between 108 –112!

And how do we stay cool????? Like Elle we put on our swimsuits & head to our neighbors pool!!!! That’s the only way to beat this heat! Grab a noodle & come on in….


Elle just loves to swim! And she is one stylin little girl let me tell you! Can you believe she is 10 months old now? And this cute suit & towel is found at Build A Bear Workshop which has great outfits for little dogs… There’s even a place for their tail to go through like on this suit.


And when I’m not swimming, I’m enjoying the online workshop Bo Ho Bliss by my friend Deryn Mentock. Check it out & see if it’s something you can’t live without!

Hope you’re staying cool~ And for all of you that have cool weather or rain…. SEND IT DOWN HERE!!!! We’re cookin!

HUGS! Charlene & Elle

Your pup actually looks like the heat is fun! I know you don't and I know you worry about me during the cold Chicago winters and now the tables are turned. How do you survive it?? I truly hope you get some rain and that it cools down. Thinking of you, my friend...

Hi Sweet Elle! You're the cutest doggie! What pretty big eyes you have. :)

Jill said...

Keep cool girlfriend ... it's not much better out east! Your doggie looks cool as a cucumber, such a sweetie!

Linda said...

That suit is so cute on adorable Elle...and the pool looks so inviting!

Your precious pup is absolutely ADORABLE Charlene!!! Don't they fill our lives with so much love and company? The class sounds amazing, I'm sure you'll be making so much gorgeous stuff. Stay cool sweet friend, hugs and love, Dawn

Oh my goodness!! Little Elle looks sooo cute!! I'm sorry you guys are having such a heat wave. I can't imagine how how hot it must feel with all your humidity. I'm glad you have a cool pool to hang out in! Enjoy your class girlfriend!!!

Elle is adorable!! I thought I was the only one who had a swimsuit for my dog, Ella - she has a one piece (I am strict mommy, don't want her showing too much fur - heh)

You poor things are roasting. I have been through summers like that here in the valley. I always feel like I am going to die! But we are so lucky to be close enough to drive to the cool coast and escape the valley heat! I'm glad I was able to bring some refreshing via internet. ox

Elle is so cute. My Bella is 3 1/2 already but still looks like a puppy. She loves the ocean.

Hello! You visited my blog awhile back & I just realized I never did thank you! I'm so glad I stopped by - you have a beautiful blog. I'm quite partial to crowns so this was a real treat (**resisting the urge to be envious** :):) And yes, I can relate to your post. Tulsa has had a scorcher of a summer. Looking forward to fall, aren't you? One more thing: is Elle a Shih Tzu or Lhasa? I love both breeds as much as afghans! Looking forward to more visits. ~~MG

I'm sending you some of our cool central coast weather my friend. Love Elle's bathing suit...she just keeps getting cuter and cuter.

Have a great rest of the week!!


Miss Sandy said...

She is adorable! I hear you on those hot temps we were topping 115 here too! We are thankfully getting rain right now, I will huff and puff and try and send it your way. Have a great weekend!

Diane said...

Elle is so cute, and with that bathing suit on! Made me laugh =))

Maija said...

Elle is quite the fashionista in her swim attire!!! So sorry you are having so much heat! And humidity too? This summer in Colorado has been glorious! Come up here and cool off!

Just catching up and looking for the little girl :). Poor gal, you dress her when it's 110?!!! Thank heavens for lakes and pools~

You are having our old weather, since global warming we have been under 100 and the nights are in the 60s, used to be still 95 at midnight, I feel your pain...

Heading to beach for 10 days, it will be the dead of winter there I bet, I am hoping for some quality mermaid time in the kitchen :)

Have a great trip!

Ps, I hope you know I was teasing you about elle, although her Beau ripping her clothes off was shocking! And yes, still teasing~

so cute she swims to you, I LOVE A WATER DOG!

Have a great week, off to shop for beach, we have to pack our food in, grocery store 21 miles away, you think I could diet that way, but I just haul in the sweets!
