Heat? What heat? It was reported that by mid-week, Italy would be sweating through another round of oppressive temps but the only thing I’m seeing is a romance that will eventually bite the dust. Our summertime neighbors brought along their new female Min Pin “Bella” which has totally, and I mean totally, grabbed the attention of our very anti-social Mister B. He goes out each morning to see if she’s out on her terrace and if she’s there, he barks up a storm while his tail wags like crazy. She never barks in return but does a sort of coquettish prance next to the fence. Kinda like, oh here I am you country bumpkin. You can see me and maybe even catch my scent, but you can never, ever have me!
