I was forced to change my morning routine because of the heat.
Lynettea suggested we go out for walkies as soon as she had sprinkled water on the plants and refilled the birdbaths.
I staggered down the hall, still half asleep.
'What's the matter, Sasha? I've been busy for ages already,' she said.
I managed to struggle into the harness and off we went. My nose and ears led me to all sorts of interesting spots in the garden and birds were darting around.
Later they will visit the birdbaths under the grapevine and Lynettea can laugh at their antics from the kitchen window. She thinks they are entertaining.
When we came in, I sat in the sink for a few minutes to cool down.
