What a difference a month makes...

Back in mid July, we thought that Duthie Park was turning into the Sahara Desert...

You will be relieved to hear that situation normal has now resumed in Aberdeen and our grass is looking a healthy summer green again.

Gail and I extend our sympathies to pups and their owners who have been suffering in the heat and drought in other parts of the world. In truth, it never ever gets too hot round here.

PS We are looking forward to meeting some very special blogging friends on Sunday. Watch this space!


  1. we will be there to see your adventure with da friends from faaaar away ;O)))

  2. We ackshually had Saharan dust here when it was 110+ - apparently it blew all da way over from da Atlantic.

  3. Our grass was looking pretty parched awhile back too but with all of the rain that we have been having, it's back to being green and mom is whining that all she does is cut the grass! Have fun with your visiting friends, Bertie!

  4. Looking forward to photos of the meet and greet. And it seems you are quite the willing host. Enjoy until Saturday!

  5. Oh, that looks much better! We're getting a lot of rain this week and next, so hopefully it'll be nice and green by us.

  6. Whew, things do seem to be greening up! We have a similar climate and it never gets too hot here either!

    We have just entered "Fog"ust, where is stays foggy most of the day...where we are stuck between the hot aor to the east of us and the cool ocean air.

  7. That's a huge difference! We'd love some rain, the state is now officially 100% in drought....

  8. Dear Bertie,

    Our grass is still golden. I do not mind, because I do not like peeing on wet grass. So dry, brown grass is better, thankyouverymuch.

    That is happy fresh grass for you, though! And it looks like it is not raining today. Enjoy!


  9. Our grass is still struggling to get its green back and Mom says it is going to need more than some cooler weather:)
