The One Where We're Sad

It's been a sad couple of days here at the park.

As you'll notice, the countdown has changed. While we're all very excited about Dr. Aunt Katie's visit, the surprise I was going to announce in 10 days, sadly, will not be.

We're all pretty bummed out about this but maybe, in the future, I will be able to surprise everyone with some news but I can tell you it won't be as soon as I'd hoped.

In the meantime, I've been really busy working hard to cheer up my two-leggers. Cali even broke out her duck bill to get some chuckles.

We've also been trying staying out of the heat. Holy bones is it hot out there. I went to check the thermometer but there was only a scorch mark and this message: "Forward mail to Alaska." (I wonder how much mail that thermometer actually gets.)

Some GOOD news is that I hear mom and papa talking about possibly taking us on a longer trip than we had planned, basically taking those few days between our two trips and making it one giant trip. Now THAT I like! I'll keep you posted.

I hope everyone is staying cool in this weather! Makes me almost want to swim!


  1. Awww, Zona! I'm sorry that whatever it was didn't work out. Hopefully it means that something even better is waiting just around the corner for you!

    I didn't know that thermometers got mail, either. We have one of those digital outdoor ones and it gave us this message. "I don't get paid to work in these conditions! I quit!"


  2. Ahhh - we are bummed too - bekhause woo are so bummed, we'll be bummed a well -

    OMD YES on the temperature - it is khurrently 92 with a real feel of 102 here in The Jungles of Pawsylvania!

    Paws khrossed fur better plans to work out fur all!


  3. Hey Zona! It's me, Sarge.
    Maybe I can cheer you up. Would you like to be my date for Frankie's Wedding? I guess I should really have one, and I think I like you best. Maybe you like me best too?? I just know we can have fun. I think that I don't usually share very well since I'm always on guard duty, but I think I can relax and enjoy your company. I know you are going to the wedding, and maybe you are already spoken for. Any chance you are available??
    Hints and Hopeful Wags,

  8. Zona, I'm so sorry that you've had a disappointment. I'm also sorry that we don't get to find out what the surprise was, but mostly I'm sorry for things not working out the way you'd hoped. The trip sounds like it's becoming a real big adventure and that is exciting so there is that to look forward to.

    My thermometer just says, "This is freaking ridiculous! Stay inside!".
