Canine Kitchen Flood
March 19, 2023
One of my dogs had an accident which resulted in a canine kitchen flood. No, no, not the way you just imagined. He’s more creative than that.
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.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
We don’t walk in the rain. It’s out the door for some quick business and right back in. Those dumb sheppies we have would probably walk in the rain but us boxers are too smart for that!
Nope, I think we might melt if it rains or at least that is what my sister Starr tells me. She will not even go out to pee.
I do not like to get my furs wet, unless I choose to get in the shower myself. I won’t go out in the rain.
Rain, already? Crazy weather that you’re having.
We’re like you. Rain doesn’t slow us down. But, thunder and lightning does…
We get so little rain here that it is a treat when it does! Yes! We walk in the rain!
They sure do look happy to be walking in the rain! Our Sibes try to get out of it pretty quick as they don’t really like it falling on them – although Gibson does like to lay outside under the porch roof with his belly side up to feel the mist on his tummy!
I can get Bella out in a very light rain without a problem. If it starts pouring while we’re out, she’ll pick up the pace and jog with me back to our place.
But when it’s torrential and she needs to go potty, she will not venture far from coverage!
We have so much rain that it can’t be helped. But our indoor dog park solved a lot of that!
No No Nonee Nonee No No!!! We do not like the rain. We might melts of something…
Bobo and Meja
Rain is our favorite walking weather. The rainy season here is so short that we want to enjoy it.
We sure do! Unless there’s lots of lightning in the immediate area. But just rain? Of COURSE!
It depends. If it’s driving rain, or really cold, then no. If it’s just gentle Spring rain, then no problem! That’s what raincoats and Wellies are for! 🙂
Dejavu….thought I was at FiveSibes. You guys really need to get togther!
Wooo no rain and Rusty taking his own route again 🙂
We have often walked in the rain, and TD and Ciara just love to soak it up. We have a few good days of sunshine coming our way so hopefully there will be some walks too.
Do you sing in the rain too?

NO WAY!! We might get wet!!
Oh what BEAUTIFUL Babies you have! Absolutely gorgeous! We are visiting from the blog hop. I love your pics and adventures 🙂 Your blog title caught my eye b/c I sometimes call my 2 “The Thundering Herd.” They always come barreling through the house making so much noise… I can’t imagine what 6 must sound like!! haha Happy Blogging!
Of course we walk in the rain. Life doesn’t stop when the clouds come out.
On the other hand, in a hard rain, I find most dogs don’t enjoy the walk as much. I suspect the rain washes a lot of the interesting scents away. So light rain is fine. But on heavy rain days, we keep the walk short and play different games in side.
Do y’all sing too? (You know how the song goes “Singin’ in the rain!”)
Y’all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog
Mack and I are city dogs through and through. (Well, really we are suburban dogs…since we live in a suburb of Wash DC) We HATE rain. To do our daily Business when raining, we are forced outside and do “it” very quickly. Mack could hold his forever. Maybe your nice thick Sib fur keeps the cold rain from reaching your skin… Pug and puggle fur is not so thick. Hu-mom laughs when she sees us whince and squish up our eyes when the rain hits.
Anyway, enjoy your walks!
Drools and licks,
Minnie and Mack
Sometimes…but I REALLY love to sit in it…and sponge it up!
BTW, just think of all the white it would it be if it were kholder ;-(
