Entertaining Bored Huskies During the Heat Wave!

It hit 102 degrees today on our thermometer, 115 with the heat index! Many people across the northeastern central portion of the country are experiencing this horrendous heatwave. What's a Sibe to do? Our five hesitantly go outside to quickly take care of business, and then retreat back inside to their favorite spots in the air conditioned house, where they hardly budge. The pups get a little restless and entertain themselves briefly with their toy bin, then back to snoozing. Here's a few scenes, that I'm sure is pretty familiar to pet owners across this week's heat belt:

Bandit's favorite spot on the nook booth (and Chloe under it!)

The married couple Harley and Gibson prefer the floor under the fan.

Whaatttt???? Another day of this hot weather????

Wolf bored and upset at the hot weather. He's having snow dreams.

Hu-Mom to the Rescue: Indoor Toy Bin Time!!!

Enough of the toy ice cream, bring on the real stuff!

Until next time...stay safe, cool, and dream of snow!


  1. Thanks for the smile. I love how Wolf kept digging through the toy bin, just had to find the right toy. :) We are seeing a lot of the same snoozing pups at our house too. Be cool! :)

  2. Wooo! We will all be dreaming of snow!

  3. Want to come visit us in Florida? It's a LOT cooler here!

  4. I feel so sorry for all my pup furends that are in that heatwave. It's winter for us so it's "coat time" here. Only I hate coats.

    Looks like you have perfected ways to cope!!!

    Tail Wuggles, Rubie.

  5. Oh YEAH... Kill that Stuffie!! I LOVE a good De-stuffing.

    Hey.. Sarge just LOVES the Treat Dispenser Thinking Thingy that you sent to him. THAT is a GRRRRREAT Prize you chose!!!

  6. My guys are getting bored too, but they seem to know how hot it is outside and even in the cooler AC'd house they are fairly dormant (thank goodness). Hopefully some relief tomorrow.

  7. Oh, that video was so much fun to watch. Much the same scenario here with bored sibes and hot temps. Will it ever end?

    We loved watching the one sibe (maybe Wolf?) sifting through the toy box while the other white one waited patiently to see what would come out of the magic box. Your toys all look so clean - you put a bug in Mom's head that it is time to wash ours and take away all the good smells we work so hard to get on them.

    Hope it cools soon for all.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

    Pee Ess - we too are blowing like crazy. Seems like it just ended. Thunder and Ciara have huge tufts for Mom to pluck and the fur is flying everywhere - the white carpet serves as a good camouflage.

  8. Wow, pawesome video! I need a toy bin like that one. Funny how the best toys are always near the bottom. I totally agree that the best fun is to take a stuffie and turn it into an unstuffie!!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  9. Woof! Woof! Happy Weekend. Stay Safe n most importantly COOL. For sure you guys will find something FUN to do. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  10. Thank the Lord for AC !!!!!!!! Wouldn't it be awful without it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I am so sorry it has taken me so long to come to visit!! I have no excuse really except blogger has not been happy and not letting me comment and me just giving up!!!!! But I can't stay away too long, I miss you all so much!!
    It was a wonderful anniversary!!!
    xx, Fern

  11. Hang in there, snow dogs! Dream of the white stuff and stay close to the AC!

    Wyatt and Stanzie

  12. Stay cool you all!! We'll take a wswim for you this weekend!

    -Gizmo, Bart and Ruby

  13. It's so hard to keep your cool when it's so darn hot, but give it your all!!!

  14. Get that stuffie! We hope cooler temps are headed your way soon. Sweet dreams of snow.:)

  15. I am so so sorry that you and others are living in such oppressive heat. We are spared due to our elevation (over 8000') but it's over 100 deg just a 30 min drive from our house.

    I hope that you get respite soon. Or, you can come to the high mountains for a quick getaway and roll in the snowfields with K and R :)

  16. Mine have been napping lots since moving to Vegas


  17. You guys sure do have a lot of toys.

    Even though it is so hot we are still not ready for the S word yet.

  18. It's so true that these photos are familiar... this reminds me of Bella's weekend too!
