I am one really, really cool dog! Please, before you take this the wrong way, let me explain.
Last week my mom and dad had been teasing me with clues about a big surprise for me. Wow, they weren’t just a kidding! I gotta tell you about this!
On the deck the other day I couldn’t figure out what the heck my mom was doing. She poured water into a flat thingy and then slowly rubbed it with her hands. Then she called me over. I sniffed it, looked at it and then looked up at my mom quizzically.
‘Okay, so now what?’
We just stared at one another for a while, and then my mom laid down next to this thing.
‘Oh, this should be good.’ I thought to myself.
Then my mom said my name and patted this thing with her hand. I was a little hesitant, but, well, I’d go to the moon for my mom, so, I bravely stepped forward.
It felt kinda weird, but in a good way, ya know what I mean? It was soft and cool and then, well, I got it! I did the usual pre-lay down circle and slowly lowered myself to blissful coolness. And that, my friends, is where I stayed for the rest of the very warm afternoon.
And there’s more! I not only have the cooling mat on the deck under the shade of the lilac tree, but I have one in the house too!
Some people may say I’m spoiled, but my take on it is that I’m really, really loved!
