Whew! I pant and pant and pant on a walk trying to get cool.  Guardian told me a doctor fixed some of my body parts to make it easier to breathe.  Maybe so, but when I walk out the door with Gus for a walk, I still pant and pant.

When I came in from a walk today, I found a really cool spot.

There was a lot of cool air coming out of this thing on the floor, but it wasn't all that comfortable lying on that hard thing.

I had to move a bit to get comfy, though. Pugs like to lie on soft things, but a girl's gotta do what she has to do to take away her hotness!

Today, Guardian came up with a new idea for cooling me on a walk.

She called it a "Chilly Buddy" coat.  It was really made for Gus a while ago, so it was sorta too long for me. Well, it just made me cooler, 'cause it covered more of me. Guardian stuck it in water first and when she put it on me, I didn't pant at all
--well for the first block anyway.  But I got used to it and now I don't mind wearing it at all!

Here's Gus wearing it when Guardian told to me he did something called "herding" sheep in a hot place. 
I guess those funny whitish animals are sheep?

Anyway, thanks, Gus for sharing your cooling coat!

My what???

Chica here:  I am officially smart!!

Gus here:  Well, you aren't the only pug in the house who's smart.

And I've been smarter much longer than you.  You gotta a LOT of catching up to do!
You aren't a real Therapy Dog yet, either!

You really know how to hurt a girl...

I'm sorry...guess I'm not all that smart, am I? I've got a bunch still to learn...

That's OK Gus.
I love you anyway!
