There are a lot of expressions starting with the words "It's so hot ...". But the two of them, about trees and dogs, are ununderstandable to me:
It is so hot that the trees are whistling for the dogs.
It's so hot and dry the trees are fighting over dogs.
Could you explain to me how I can understand trees are whistling for the dogs and trees are fighting over dogs ?

Do not take these sentences literally. They're supposed to be funny.
Dogs commonly urinate against tree trunks. The trees are so hot that they are encouraging dogs to come and sprinkle them with water.
