So hot that I can barely get out of bed. Please mom, I need-need-need a pool! I mean, look at this guy! He's cool and happy and has all sorts of toys in his pool.
Mom, don't you want me to be happy, too?
My mom remembered that the local Ace Hardware store carried little pools like this, so we took a trip down the street to buy one. Their logo says: "The helpful place" and it sure is!
I love Ace! They let puppies like me come into the store and always have yummy treats to share. Whenever we walk by the store, I try to drag my mom into the store so I can say "hello" -- and to get my treats, of course.
But, when we got to the store, we saw a sign that said:
Oh, no! Oh, no! Oh, no!
Apparently it was so hot that their air conditioner broke, so they couldn't stay open.
What should we do now? It is sooooo hot, Mom!
Suddenly my mom said she had an idea . . . She found an plastic storage container on the third floor, emptied it out, and filled it with water. Hmm . . . I think I know where you are going with this. I dropped my ball into the water to test the water out a bit . . . And then dove right in! Ahhhh . . . great idea, Mom!
As fore-lady, it is my job to make sure everything is done correctly. The sticks look good, so let's get started! Dad, just carry the sticks over there, and I'll tell you what to do. Yeah, that's a good spot! I helped carry some sticks, too. I had to supervise to make sure my Dad did everything right.
And after hours and days and hours and days and hours and days of hard work,
My dad decided that it was time to do some major renovations in our backyard, namely build a parking pad and redo the fence. Since he obviously has no idea what he is doing, I volunteered to be the fore-lady for the job.
Wait, you say that Dad is an engineer and builds stuff all the time? Whatever. We all know that my skills are far superior. After surveying the property, I decided that the best place for the parking pad would be at the rear of the yard so that my dad can have access to the alley behind the house.
The first thing to do is move back the flowerbeds to make room for the parking pad. Good job, dad!
Ok, next thing to do is build the frame . . . and pour the . . . Whoa, you guys are fast!
Time to call it a day! I hear my dinner calling . . .
