dog days of summer

i don't know about ya'll, but it's crazy go nuts hot at my house!!  me and asa don't really wanna do anythingie too exciting cuz of the mega hotness.
check out my handy dandy indoor/outdoor thermometer.  just look at this ridiculousness!
now my mama's kinda cheapo like mango and dexter's mama, which means she's got the AC temperature set uber high, too.  can't a doggie get any reliefs from the heat?  mama just keeps telling me that it costs 50 gazillion green papers to keep the house cool and that i'm just gonna have to make do.  she even suggested that i could always get my furs shaved if i couldn't stop being a cranky pants.  hmmmph.  well, me and asa decided to stage an intervention.  we sat mama down in front of the compy and showed her miss lorenza's post on yogurt 'n PB pupsicles.  i'm super duper happy to report that mama liked the idea so much, that she went straight to the kitchen to make some pupsicles for me and asa.  YAY!  normally, we aren't allowed in the kitchen when mama is doing her cooking thingie, but this time she let us watch.
okie dokie, so here we go!  first, mama got out 6 paper cups (5 oz. size).  i like the underwater theme.  heehee.

mama put the paper cups in a little plastic container so there would be no wibbly wobblies or spillage.

then mama measured out some tasty yogurt into her measuring cup device.  i am in 100% snoopervising mode.

boy howdy, the PB came next!  we like smooth PB at my house.  i was trying to use my brain powers to will the PB to fall in my general direction.  look at those epic concentrations.

mama mixed up the yogurt 'n PB really good like cuz you just can't have chunks.

then she poured the mix into the little paper cups s-l-o-w-l-y.

last but not least, she put the super delicious goo into the freezer so it could turn into pupsicles!

oh, mama, we totally love you and your kitchen craftiness!!

Mango said...

That looks like a great way to beat the heat. Sorry about your stingy witch, er, mom and the AC. Wow! It is so hot here that momma turned on the AC at 8AM because the insides were already almost 80 degrees.

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Mom is not too happy with us as we are drooling all over her laptop screen as we watch the making of those pupsicles. Bet they were really tasty.

It is really hot here too, but our Mom doesn't do well with heat - so our a/c is just right for us. She complains all the time about all the green papers it costs too. She can't make up her mind. In the winter it is too cold and the summer is too hot - sheesh.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Nubbin' Tails said...

We are going to show your post to mom and see if we can get her to hop over to Lorenza's for the recipe! We love us some peanut butter here!


Mr. Nubbin'

Lola said...

Booker, your Mom is well trained and very talented. You are a lucky dog, indeed.

CreekHiker / HollysFolly said...

Mr. Booker, your tongue is awesome! Tell mama those pupsicles look so yummy! It's still not too hot here in Cali but soon! We're dreading it!

rottrover said...

Mr. Bookerman. My mom thinks doggies are lack-toes intolerant. I told her we have all our toes but she said she doesn't want us to get tummy aches. I don't get it, but is your tummy ok? I just want to know because those look so yummy.
Miss Ruby

Lorenza said...

Hi, Booker and Asa!
Hurray! Glad your mom made the frosties for you!
I know you are going to love them!
I can't wait to see you enjoying them!
Kisses and hugs

Stellaluna and Pals said...

For. Reals. In my house it is a totes war over whether the air is on or not. And even when we do use it at my house there's this thing Mama calls hew-mid-uh-tee that makes it still feel hot. Whatevs. I just know I don't like it.
Keep cool pal

Petey said...

Hi Asa and Booker!

I'm Petey and I split my time between Hilton Head and New York City! Right now I'm on Hilton Head and as hot and humid as it can be, at least we've got central air conditioning, which is better than the little window unit we've got in New York (where it's just as hot and almost as humid!). Thank goodness for the beach--we go down there in the evening and there always seems to be a refreshing breeze!

Your pal,


Minna Krebs said...

You and Asa are such good dogs..just watching all patient and stuffs while your mom puts that tray of treats in da freezer.

Now if that was at my least ONE of us would be making a quick move to sneak a quick taste....I means they be so close to our nose and mouths already!!


Ms. ~K said...

Sure hope your mom has closed the freezer door by now...those look ki==like they are going to be yummy...we can't wait to see you enjoying them!
Licks and sniffs,
Zack, Sassy and Buddy

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow that stinks that it is so hot there! We hope it gets a bit cooler soon!

And wow pupsicles - what a cool thing. We think they look kinda tasty but we think our mom would say no becuase, well, we are cats and she things peanut butter is weird for cats. But we think she is crazy and should try to make one - they look yum!

We can't wait to see if you like them or not!

In case you missed my lovely comment on your post on my blog today (ha ha, that sounds confusing), I have one thing to say to you: (other than the fact that I'm jealous of your mom's cooking) You can't cut this type of post short. What do you mean... to be continued? When do we get to see you eat?

K9friend said...

What a great idea! That looks like a terrific treat!
