Mischief Monday - It Happens Even When It Is Hot - by Phod

Dear pals,

I don't even know where to start with the mischief. 

I will start with the weather. It has been as hot as Hades. Day time highs with the humidity have been 40C/104F and without the humidity the low 30sC/90ishF. I have gotten to go in the lake many times, but Lady didn't take a picture capturing device. It is expected to cool down to the mid 20sC/70sF. (Note the only a/c we have is in the car and the bedroom!)

I may just melt into the floor.

Friday night Lady came home smelling very interesting. Turns out she had spent her afternoon taking a client to the Experimental Farm. There she was a traitor and loved other animals.

But perhaps the worst mischief of all is that Man has agreed that Lady can put some water and food out for the stray-ish cats that are often seen under our feeders. We call them stray-ish because a house a couple doors over seems to be feeding and caring for them. Anyway, we are sure pictures of cats outside our house will soon be taking over this DOG blog. Lady would like it noted that since having more cats around, the mice have been less of a problem indoors.

Lady says to watch this space next week for a whole lot of mischief as Hurricane Emma will be spending about 48 hours with us as the Man and Uncle Chris go to Toronto for a concert.

Stay cool friends! 

your pal, Handsome Phod


  1. ooh we like the friends your lady met... and we hope for many funny adventures when Emma is with you... what concert? da stones?

    Well, Phoddy darling, at least you are only reporting mischief that is all around you rather than about you!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. OH MY! cats on the outside, emma on the inside. we will be watching this blog awaiting the Action Shots..

  4. It's been too hot here as well, Phod, but we are lucky to have AC in our whole house. We can't believe your mom is feeding those outside cats. Next thing you know she will be bringing them into the house!

  5. My handsome Phod you are an Ace reporter and photo journalist.
    OMDs that is horrible heat and no central air. I be the tile floors are cool
    I appreciate you not being too upset with lady at the Farm. I enjoyed the animals and the little calf with a heart shaved in the fur is precious
    Hugs Cecilia

  6. We hope the heat goes away and Lady remembers her priorities regarding who to photograph...

  7. We've been having a heat wave here in WNY too. Thank goodness for AC. Hope your folks enjoy that concert in Toronto!

  8. Cut little calf
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  9. It seems to be too hot all over the world. Love that goat smiling at us☺
