How to have an "it's too hot outside!" pawjama party in the air conditioning

We had a pawjama party in the air conditioning!
Last night it was very hot so Mommy said, "It's too hot upstairs. Let's have a pawjama party in the living room with the air conditioning!"

Yay! We love having pawjama parties!

Daddy said, "No thanks. I'll sleep upstairs." Boo on Daddy. He's no fun. And he's on vacation, too!

This is how you have a pawjama party. First, your mommy puts sheets and towels and other stuff on the couch to make the puppies comfy and soak up the water from the last round of water dog. You should move all of those towels around and dig on the couch until you get it fixed just the way you like it.

Then you have your daddy blow up an air mattress using a noisy, scary machine.

Then Mommy puts some fresh sheets on the air mattress and covers it all with a big comforter to keep out the dirt from the pups.

Then you get all of the dog beds and lay them around the living room so everyone has a place to sleep.

Then you turn on the air conditioning and the fans to make it nice and cool in the living room.

Then your daddy says, "Have fun!" and goes upstairs.

Then everyone else goes to bed.

When you have a pawjama party, you are allowed to sleep anywhere you want. So try the couch! Try Mommy's air bed! Try the dog beds! Then try them all again, all night long! If you are a cat, you don't even have to sleep. You can play pounce on everyone and hide under the covers and meeeooow all night.

Maybe you would rather sleep on Mommy's bed.
Make sure you leave a corner for her to squeeze in.
During the night, your mommy can turn the fans on when it gets too hot because there are dogs sleeping all over her. Then she can turn the fans off when it gets too cold. Then she can turn the fans back on. And then off. And then on. And then off.

But you can try all the beds and sleep on two beds at the same time if you want!
And then in the middle of the night your mommy can say, "This is not working!" and go upstairs and sleep in the hot bedroom and let the dogs and cat have the pawjama party room all to themselves.

Except you don't have to stay in the pawjama party room. If you love your mommy, you can go upstairs with here and hog up the big bed because you know that Mommy can't sleep unless her pups are with her.

And that is how you have a pawjama party in the airconditioning.

Mommy says Sleepy Nap Time will start early today.

DUSTY: WHat a perfect pajama pawty that was!
HURLEY: Mommy is lucky that you love her enough to follow her up to the hot bedroom so she could fal asleep again.

We don’t have an upstairs to worry about, so having a pawjama party is not relevant in our household.

But on those very hot nights I make sure to leave the air conditioning going until morning and turn on all the ceiling fans. I then fill up my dog’s water bowls and my drinking glass with ice cubes plenty of ice cubes. Finally, I dampen my nightgown with a mist of cold water and also my Shih Tzu’s long hair.

Aah! That feels great and sleep comes easy!

Grandma gave us a nice air conditioner that Daddy put in the bedroom. Yay! We can have a pawjama party right in bed! Our grandma is the greatest grandma in the whole entire world. Because it is HOT this week and we are some super HOT dogs!
