The day Truffle melted

At work yesterday, I had a run through for graduation and I took Truffle with me. My office runs the show and this time we are recognizing Japanese Americans who were forced to leave PCC during WWII due to Internment. So we were leading folks around showing the volunteers where people will be sitting and what to do ect.... anyway we were walking up into the football stands and Truffie starts doing the hot foot dance. Poor baby it was a sunny day and the stands are metal. I had looked at them and was more concerned about her tearing a paw on a jagged corner, thats when I noticed the little jig she was doing. I scooped her up and little paws and bum were a bit warm. I felt bad - because it was sad but funny! I grabbed her right away but the 1st one or two shuffles looked like she was doing a dance. Lucky no one laughed at her dance and she got lots of love.

She was so good just snuggling in my arms (all 40lbs of her) while we finished our tour, she was great the rest of the tour, walking on the field and taking a snooze when conversations ran long. I've been really good about testing the concrete to make sure it's not too hot for her paws, but I didn't think yesterday was that hot.

so puppies beware summer is here.

Poor Truffie!!! I took Cabana to a friend's pool last week, and because she was ALLOWED to get in, of course she didn't WANT to get in. But then she started doing the hot foot dance, too, so she wisely decided to get into the pool--just on the first step.
