The thing about getting a new puppy is that you have to spend a lot of time outdoor while trying to housebreak them. Then there are walks to keep them worn out so they don’t get into things they shouldn’t and, or course, the dog park for proper socialization. If I had really realized how much time I would be spending outside, I would have waited until fall to get a puppy. As it is, I’m spending way more time out in this southern heat than I am used to. I the type that goes from my air conditioned house to my air conditioned car to an air conditioned destination. Then I reverse the process. Now, it is not unusual for me to spend a few hours outside with a heat index over 100 degrees. I don’t like it. I love my new puppy though and I would do anything for her. I guess that is proven my all of the time I am now spending seperate from my A/C. She is starting to get the hang of this using the bathroom outside thing too so it is not like I have nothing to show for all of the time I’ve spent dying in the heat. I really wish someone would invent air conditioned clothing though. Like a jacket you wear that pumps cool air or something. I guess I’m just dreaming but that would be very nice. I mean, astronauts have temperature controlled suites don’t they? So why can’t I? Picture a bunch of people walking around in astronaut suits walking their dogs. It is pretty funny.
