A dog's day

A large yellow dog and a large black dog lay outside the office door in the shade next to a punch bowl full of water.

"Hot today," the first dog remarked.

"Yup," the second dog replied.

"Too bad the rain stopped," the first dog continued.

"Nope," the second dog said, shaking his head as drool dropped from his tongue to the ground. It evaporated almost immediately. "Too many mosquitoes."

"True," the first dog conceded. "But it was cooler."

"True," the second dog agreed.

After a moment of silence, the first dog rolled over and lied his head next the bowl. "So what are you doing today?"

"Chasing squirrels," the black dog said, yawning. "Slim pickings today. Not many trees round here without fences."

"I hear ya," the first dog said sympathetically. "I'm supposed to be looking for rabbits, and I tell ya, there just ain't much moving from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. ya know? Except the damn bugs."

"I know," the second dog said, shaking his head. "It's a shame."

Another minute or so later, the first dog looked up into the sky. "Anything else you got to do today?"

"Nope," the second dog said sleepily, his eyes shutting. "Too damn hot to get any work done. Feels like we're laying on the surface of Mercury."

"Yup," the first dog said. He looked at a rock and started to get up, than sat back down. The second dog looked at him. "Thought it was a rabbit," he explained.

The second dog nodded.

After another few minutes, the dog stretched and stood up. "Wanna go get something to eat? Thinkin' of that rabbit made me hungry."

"Sure," the second dog said, shaking himself awake. "Maybe we'll find some mud or water to roll in and cool down."

They trotted down the street, the sun beating down on them.

"It's hot," the first dog said, his tongue dripping.

"Yup," said the second dog, panting heavily.

"You still hungry?" the first dog asked.

"Nope," said the second dog. "Too hot."

"Wanna go back?" asked the first dog.

"Yup," said the second dog. They trotted back to the doorway and laid under the shade.

"It's a dog's day," the first dog said.

"Yup," the second dog said.

I absolutely love this! I can just picture it all in my head. (By the way as I came home Thursday afternoon, coming into the driveway, there was a small brown rabbit just hopping down the drive along side my car. I went slow and he did not seemed to be the least bit bothered by the "giant silver monster" rolling next to him. I did have to shoo him away as Arthur always comes out to greet me as I come in and he surely would have given the bunny a run for his money!!!)

I'm glad the bunny got away safely. :)
