This is a picture of our back yard that is burning up cos it is so hot outside. What I really wanted you to notice though is the doorway into Alcatraz that Mom calls the safe place we can go play. Most of the grass by the doorway is gone now cos of the heat and cos Trudie always stands there hoping to dig her way back to the porch. Mom and Dad built Alcatraz so Sam would stop running up to the highway and bringing on a possible heart attack with them.
This is the side view of Alcatraz with the Warden watching Mom take a picture of him. His name is Warden "Mean ole Cat Dietzman". He never ever goes into Alcatraz but lays on the outside of freedom watching us do our Pugtona thing around in circles. He doesn't need to share his feelings with us cos his face says it all.This is the pool outside of Alcatraz. You will notice there are no pugs swimming in it. Mom says it is even to hot for us to play outside. I am glad someone is smiling!
