Summer has Arrived!

The weekend has arrived, and with it, Summer! You all have no idea how happy I am to have a warm, sunny day! After snow, wind, rain, and cold for about 8 months, Summer has finally decided to come back.

Today the temperature shot up to about 25 degrees, and the humans have already got sunburn! My human Lizzy saw me panting out in the sunshine, so she made me some frosty paws (that are not yet frosty), and I'll have to wait until they're done freezing before I can eat them.

Ahhh, nothing like running or relaxing in the warm sun... It's mid afternoon now, and I was just playing "Fling the Ring"! I fling my ring toy a few times, and then I lie down to cool off, and then I fling the ring some more. It's become one of my favorite games that doesn't involve human help. All I need is the ring, and then I can fling!




By the way, look at this! Keda always swore she could tear any cat apart, but then my human picked her up and plopped her in the cat bed with White Cat, and she didn't do a thing! She didn't even try to bite him! You know why? Because she's a chicken. She was afraid White Cat would tear her to pieces if she made any sudden moves (and he probably would, too). As soon as my human put her back down, she put on her big fierce act again. She likes everyone to think she can do anything, but really she can't.



Well, I'm off to check on those frosty paws. Frozen or not, I'm ready to eat them! I hope you're all having a grrrrEAT weekend!

Sparky, cool game with the ring pal in the summer sunshine! Mom says you are totally 'dorable and funny...

Wiry wags, Eric

Moco said...

You are quite amazing. I throw my stuffies around like that. Usually the boys don't want to play so I have to entertain myself.
We are having a heat wave also. 91 degrees right now @ 6:10pm. I don't care much for it.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Sparky!
Sure you know how to entertain yourself! I like your video!
What is going on with Keda?? I'd be scared too!
Kisses and hugs
Lorenza

PS I hope you frosty paws were yummy!

Sparky! Solitary Ring Toss - a new game. I have to try it. You are deliciously cute and I loved watching you play.

I think Keda is a pussycat!!

Hi Sparky,
Sorry we have not been by to visit in a while but mum was real busy with work and couldn't help us with our blog.
Wow you can amuse yourself with that ring with no need to wait until someone throws it for you -that's a pretty cool trick. The green grass looks so inviting! It was nice and warm here too today and we had to pant a bit too but that didn't prompt our mum to make any yummy frosty paws. We'll have to speak to her about that!

I am glad to hear it is warming up for you! I can toss things in the air too, but not as good as you!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, what a fun game and you're really good at it too. You even put your nose through the ring, toss and catch.

JB's Big World said...

Hi Sparky,
You look like you are having a great time flinging your ring. Great video!
Keda is a good dog and I like her. She can come over to my house and sleep with me too. I am not a scary cat at all.

Tasha & Eva said...

We love frosty paws. But Momma doesn't like the ingredients in the ones from the store. Can your Momma share her recipe?

Eva

P.S. We really appreciate you taking the time to check on Tasha. She means the world to us.

Deefor said...

Hi Sparky
I like the way you play with your ring. Looks like fun. You have a lot of talents. I couldn't sit with a kitty either. I can hardly sit with my bro Arrow-- and he's a dog.
