What a weekend!

First off....


I do believe it was as hot in Minnesota
as it is on the sun....

Really hot!

So I had to daydream --

It seemed to help....

Then my services were needed....

you all know I AM a Doctor
of many things.....

It seems our computer was under
the weather....or what I called a
(medical terms)

So lucky for Mike I was here to
assist in making our computer
well again....

Also the fair was here this weekend....

And Mike being the good sport
that he is -- was in the donkey race.
There were five people from the
hospital where he works on the team.

Mike's donkey's name was....

wait for it....





Mike had a very hard time staying on
him because he kept bucking Mike off.

Well, needless to say
they did not win.

But Mike got a ribbon for
his efforts....

That was nice....

I am off to lay in front of the A/C --
the heat wave is suppose
to last most of this week.

Later -- Remington --
off to daydream about snow....
-- out!

Remington what a great post on Mike's incredible sportsmanship!! Give him a high 5 from us. OMC I bet you wish you had not shipped off all your snow last winter. We had a tiny reprieve from the hots but they are returning this week. They say there is a heat dome hanging over us.
Mom and I watched Dogs 101 over the weekend. I nearly fainted when I say my handsome friend Rem on the tvs. Mom finally convinced me it was not you...but I still sat right in front of the tvs the entire time the Rem wanna be was on tvs. Your breed of K9 was called a "Nanny Dog" becasue you are so sweet and good with children.
I didn't realized the dog in Petter Pan was a Newfie either...we learned a lot.
Hugs Madi and Mom

It is gonna be hot here today! We don't have as much furs as you do, but we know where all the AC vents in the house are. And boy do we stay close!

Kudos to Mr. Mike for being such a good sport.

Of course, he does have you as a model.

Sandra said...

so you are a nanny dog, learn something new from the comments once in a while. you would be great as a nanny, but not sure what a mail nanny is called. that sun looks HOT and it is HOT here also. Killer ROFL sorry Mike did not win. I like donkeys a lot, but second behind Dogs. hope you get cooled off in front of the AC

Heat wave ... we've had rain, with muggy rain and now fog. Yep, nothing like Summer in the NW.

Whisppy said...

Killer the donkey. LOL! It's really really hot here as well! We did 4 loads of laundry today and they ALL dried by evening!

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

How fun that Mike got to ride on a Killer Donkey - but we are glad he didn't get hurt.

We are with you when it comes to this awful heat - now we desperately need snow.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Great going Mike!!! A donkey race!! I tried to pet two donkeys yesterday and they wanted nothing to do with me except eat my apples! Glad the computer is fixed and hope it cools off some! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

Junior and Orion said...

Well, too bad there aren't pictures of Mike trying to ride that donkey. We give him 8 paws up for trying!

Our weather is all over the place here. We get hots and then we get some rains, and then we just get it teasing us that it is going to rain so it is hot and humid. We will deal with it though, because we are not quite ready for winter to be back.

Hector, Lola, and Tony said...

Hi Remington! We love your blog! Hope you stay cool in the hot weather! -Hector, Lola, & Tony

Jazzi said...

SquirrelQueen said...

Goodness Remington, sorry to hear about your heatwave. Stay close to the a/c.

Glad to hear Dr. Remington was on call for the virus emergency.

I'll bet the donkey riding was fun to watch!

Sagira said...

Sorry to hear that your computer was sick. That is never any fun.

Hope it cools off for you this weekend...but then again you do bring the heat because YOU are so HOT! xoxo

High paws to Mike for sticking with Killer! Never let a donkey get the best of ya ;)

Waggin at ya,

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

No wonder Killer was bucking, being made to race in 100 degree heat! Mike was a voluntary good sport. Killer was an involuntary good sport. Hope Killer got LOTS of that Remington Pure water!
