A number of years ago, the hu-dad took one of those personality profiles at his busyness. The counselor (er, apparently there was a counselor for everyone, not just the hu-dad – we are not sure if we believe that or not) was reviewing the results with the hu-dad. The highest score was his outdoor score – a great need and desire to be outdoors as much as possible. Confused by the relatively low score of a co-worker who appeared to enjoy the outdoors just as much, the hu-dad asked why the difference. The counselor asked the hu-dad, “If you are hiking and it starts to rain, what happens?” The hu-dad’s response? You get wet. The co-worker’s response? You seek shelter. Which brings us to today’s post.

A Walk on the Trashy Side
June 4, 2023
Maybe my neighbors didn’t notice, but I took a walk on the trashy side last week and need to confess my mistake.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
Chasing Sun – The Struggle Is Real
We try every day to let you know how tough the life of a working breed dog is, so today we share the struggle of chasing sun.
That is *a lot* of rain. I’m with you, get soaked while hiking rather than go home! I hope that your vacation stays fun despite the storm. Gorgeous beach photos.
Very chic do, Miss Kiska!
Our mom answered like your dad….so what’s wrong with getting wet?
jack a-roo & miss moo
You were very lucky enjoying the rain!
My mom is…. is…. well, you know… she does not let me go out on rainy days!
Kisses and hugs
Fank you for the gorgeous finale wif the Miss Kiska… *sigh*… as I was feelin the need to bunker till then!
wif love from the Luke
P.S. Please to let the rest of your vacay be sweet sunshine, moderate temps and fresh breezes. Just sayin!
The wet head is dead.
That looks like a pretty nice wave for the east coast.
Remy and Flash … who are two of 100% of Siberian Huskies who dont smell when we are wet.
We’re with you. We just keep dripping and walking. Of course thunder and lightning will bring us off the beach in an instant.
I love a good walk in the warm rain
I love watching movies that have rainy scenes while it is raining…inside of course. Now Quinn, HE would be out there with you all getting stinky wet and sloppy. Glad you had a great time!
Ahhh, nothing like the smell of many wet dogs!
Wow, that is a lot of rain! I hope none of you were wearing white t-shirts.
Lots of rain with you! We were just looking at the weather forecast for the US here on our national news – seems like a lot of rain is coming down in lots of places at the moment in the US!
Glad you enjoy it – Clive refuses to go out in the rain!!
haha…the new wet looks is very beautiful.
4-5″ that is a lot of rain for sure!
TD and Ciara here – we LOVE the rain. Add some sand and the ocean – that’s a recipe for lots of fun.
Phantom hopes the sun came our for you today.
Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
When you have a beautiful beach to walk, who cares about a little rain (or, maybe a LOT of rain). I thought the wet look was in? 🙂
Hu-dad I’m curious, what other results did woo have? A love for smells? A love for furballs? A love for mudballs? A love for songs of woo? A long for wearing belts with sibes attached? I’m wondering what this all means…
PS- Kiska is rocking the wet look!
I’m with yous… so we get a little wet?! We’ll all dry off later. Love the pics!
Kiska, you can make any look look good!
I don’t think I’d seek shelter, but there would definitely be a rain coat put on and an umbrella employed! You gotta look good while you’re walking, even in the rain!
Mmmmmmmm! Wet dog smell. Am I the only one who actually likes it?
Woooo rain is great, suppose there is no mud for you on the beach tho 🙁
Nothing wrong with the wet look.
Yes, we agree, you get wet – no big deal! Our grandad used to say that there was no such thing as too cold or too wet – you just had the wrong clothing on!
Kiska looks happy enough and suits the wet look!
The wet look soooo agrees with Princess K!
PeeEssWoo: But is it a hard rain?
