Our Newest Tenant

The heat wave is taking it's toll here at the kampground. Only 2:00 and I already feel a bit withered and wilted. Wish I could just tilt back and sleep the afternoon away. My phone is by my side, so I know that will not happen.

Last week one of my kampers lost their dog to a heat stroke. 

RIP Atlas. He was not an old guy, only four. HeWho loves dogs as much as I do enjoyed playing with him during our Independence Day celebration.

The family was devastated and this morning they stopped in to see me and show me the newest tenant here at the kampground. He doesn't have a name yet, but I enjoyed a good dose of puppy holding with those limber arms and legs and sweet breath! 

Just look at that face! HeWho rushed home to cuddle this little guy.

Yesterday, HeWho spent some inside time out of the heat with his favorite little kamper, Remi. They were playing solitaire on the laptop. He has proclaimed this sweet girl to be his adopted granddaughter. She reminds him of his youngest child. I had to tell her parents that she will never outgrow her rambunctious attitude. It is fun to watch her exasperate her parents!

I have plenty to do inside today, but am just not motivated. Solitaire on the lap top sounds good. Not very productive, though. A nap sounds better.
