Keeping cool. Easy in winter.
Hello Everybody! Autumn the (eternal) Puppy here!

Okay, I'll be the first to admit that this is an odd picture of me to post today, but considering we're in what some people consider "the dog days of summer"; that sultry humid time
associated with the warmest days and Sirius the Dog Star within the constellation Canis Major.

So please take care of yourselves and each other, and we'll be back next weekend with more Sunday Funnies!-AtP.
