Yes it's the toastiest part of the year here in the desert. The humidity can be 'higher', around 30% or so, but not anything close to what I just went through back east. This summer weather is one reason why I moved here, with this great pool weather and long season.
Of course that crazy Jack Russell, Sparky, came out here and also fell in love with the pool, even swimming underwater. If you're not familiar with Jacks, they're said to have ADHD. The HD hyperactive part I can agree, but they are EXTREMELY focused on whatever they are doing and very renlentless. They aren't quitters, that's for sure, and will try to think of knew ways to meet a challenge. Sparky is no exception and her determination is how she taught herself how to swim after she made the move to Las Vegas.
Jacks are a little hard to describe, they're not you're typical dog. They were bred to hunt, for flushing out whatever their master was after, and will 'go to ground' in pursuit and can climb trees. They are the most flexible, agile creatures that appear to be made out of rubber, and part rabbit, cat, and dog. They are amazingly powerful for their small size, all muscle and can coil up like a spring and shoot themselves through the air, twisting and reshaping themselves to adjust their flight path for their target.
Sparky turned nine last month. She's been through three surgeries in the past 2 years. (Thanks Dr. George for the great work!) I think if you watch her latest photoshow you'll see there isn't much that can slow her down. Watch as she stretches it out or twists & turns in mid-air and spreads her toes or flexes to put on the brakes. Whatever it takes to hit her target. All the while she's loving these dog days of Las Vegas! You can use the HD button in the player to view the show full screen.
That's her from above the water. Her underwater video is here. At the moment they're having some problems with their streaming servers and a little choppy. You can pause and wait for it to load, or try her YouTube page and also view it full screen there when it's up & running.
