Summer is not very much fun when you get right down to it. Yes it is warmer and you don't have to worry about several feet of snow, and yes the dog park is easier to get to, and yes there are things like hamburger cookouts and visits to grandma's houses. But there are bad parts too. It gets really hot sometimes, and we can't go to the dog park as much when it gets really hot because Beau is old and daddy is lazy. We don't even get to stay out in the yard very much. And hamburger cookouts are more fun for people than for hounds because we don't get to eat as much as we would like.
But the worst part about summer is the flies. They are stupid little bugs that fly into the house when the door opens and they land on your food and buzz against the window. I would really like to eat them but they are too fast to catch usually. And there are tons of them out there! I don't know if they breed better in the heat or what but every time you go out they buzz around your head to remind you they are still there.
I hate you guys
But flies outside are nothing compared to flies inside. Inside they draw the attention of mama and daddy, and they try to kill them. They are faster than I am but they use a rolled up newspaper to squash them. Rolled up newspapers are also used on bad dogs. I wasn't a bad dog but they got used on me before I came to live with mama and daddy, and it reminds me of life before them. I don't like those reminders. It makes me shake and worry that I am going to get swatted instead of the flies. I know they aren't going to swat me - at least I hope they don't (sometimes I get my rump swatted when I am being stubborn but it is not mean and they just use their hands instead of a rolled up newspaper) - but still it just makes me scared. So, I am hoping the flies all go away soon.
