H*O*T - H*O*T - H*O*T

Frankie says:

So, this is a spider that was on our patio not too long ago. Those are little spider babies on its back. Isn't that gross?



It is 114 degrees. That's even too hot for me (Frankie). Usually, I like to lay outside for about 20 minutes no matter how hot it is outside, but today the patio was scorching my paws! I flopped over next to the pool but came back to the door about 20 seconds later.


It was still so hot after it got dark that I didn't even have the energy to chase the crickets on our patio. I'm hoping it cools off soon so I can resume my daily patrols of the perimeter of our yard. You never know when a lizard or spider may be lurking around. The day after we saw that spider above, mommy called the bug guys to spray!

Ick! That is one nasty spider! I hope the bug man gets there before all those babies take off. Wow! That is tooo hot. I love to lay in the sun also but I am like you when it gets too hot but I don't think it gets quite that hot at my house. I fell bad for you and Lorenza.
Love and hugs,
