It’s been almost a week since I last blogged, and all I can say is, it’s summer. To the rest of the country, summer is a good thing. To Floridians, it’s damn hot! But I did find a few ways to cool off this week—riding my bike early in the morning, walking Luke late at night, and a rainy-day pool party at my brothers’ new apartment. Last night, it was listening to reggae with friends at O’Leary’s. And it wasn’t just the people enjoying the cool respite of the evening. We saw this yellow crowned night heron upon parking the car.And we followed this black Labrador from the entrance of Bayfront Park into O’Leary’s. The owner was a few paces behind, and the Lab made sure of it, stopping to look back a tad impatiently every few steps. John and I were both clearly impressed by the dog’s knowledge of the park, so his owner says to us with a grin, “If I could only get him to order a beer for me.” Now, that’s a dog trick.
