Dog Days of Summer…..

In the true heat of a tropical summer

we spend a lot of the




Under the fan

by the pool.

So does he.


King of the dog days…


Stay cool my friends….

He is human.

Edward and Apple are laying atop the air-conditioner vents. Cool tummies for all!

Tara Dillard said...

How your pool is tempting me.

Of course your dog takes my heart.

That is a very inviting place to spend a summer evening.

Your big black dog looks great sitting on that chair.

Linda, your King Dog sure does look like the master of the house.........relaxing in the cool by the pool...."somebody bring me a bone!"
Loved the grapefruit painting, and the the pool finished now?

Sadie wants to know if she can come over to play (or just lounge on the gorgeous furniture!).

What a beautiful pup! And I looooooove the blue and white on your patio!

Stephanie said...

what shots...your gentle friend enjoying the tropical summer in such style!

I'm feeling a bit tropical in our crazy heat!

Sam Hoffer / My Carolina Kitchen said...

I would be spending my days and nights there too. Your friend is adorable.

Janey said...

Love your blue and white setting - better than Marilyn's, I reckon! Here in tropical North Queensland, Australia, it's winter and we enjoy sitting outside too. In summer, it's too hot to do that, we wallow in the air-conditioning!

Cobalt Violet said...

Love your home! ... the blue and white and dark wood ... that painting. Fabulous.

I am hanging at my parents' in Ojai recovering from abdominal surgery (which is why I have been pretty m.i.a. on the blogging front lately.) I will get into all that later but I decided to make my rounds on Percocet and see how that goes. Pretty interesting, but I will be happier to soon be pain and medication free!

Anyhow, great to be back visiting your blog and hope you are enjoying the summer!
