A New York Hot Summer

This is the water play station in my neighborhood.  It is amazingly cooling, I run the dogs through it every time they open it since it is on my way to the dog park.  Heeding all the advice about exercise, the dogs and I go to the park every day for 30 - 45 minutes.  Since the walk there and back adds another 30 minutes they are getting a lot of movement.
A lot of the people who bring their dogs to the park sit and read their phones or their kindles and "let the dogs play".  If I did that my two girls would be staring at me from 30 inches away trying to figure out when I had been transformed into someone else because I am supposed to throw balls and let them bring them back to me.  I am also supposed to push the button on the dog level fountain ever 30 minutes or so and try to keep little stones from attaching themselves to the balls .. dog spit is apparently a very good adhesive.

New York in the summer when it sizzles.... and it has been sizzling a LOT lately.
