The Mystery of The Cold Puppy Tummy

page 64

When I lived in Nashua, NH, there were air conditioning vents on the floor so when it got hot in the summer; it was usually a good idea to run the A/C. Why sit in a hot house? There would be times when my parents, my sister Lori, and I would be sitting in the den room and it would still be hot despite the air conditioning running.

When a certain brown down, who shall remain forever cute, wasn’t around, we’d call her and she’s come running from the dining room for her petties. In ten minutes, the living room felt cooler. Hum? When it’s hot and Yalu’s nowhere to seen, the room is warm. Call the dog and a few minutes later the room feels much cooler.

Then there was also the strange occurrence of once we called Yalu and her petting session commence, her tummy would feel be very cold. Did she eat a lot of ice cubes? Maybe she found a bag of ice to sit on. Hum?

The mystery deepened. How could a long haired Golden Retriever covered with fur stay cool on a hot summer day inside the house? Then, when the petties ended, why was it when Yalu disappeared, about a half hour later the house felt warm again? These are just big mysteries of the universe like Stonehenge, UFOs, the Lock Ness Monster, and Big Foot.
