Showers on Saturday


What do you do when your Saturday is rainy and foggy?

Rainy road

You go walking anyway.

Rusty raincoat

And use rain gear as appropriate.

    Who needs an umbrella when you have somebody’s…raincoat to walk under? I heart you, Rusty! Don’t ever change!

    And that night someone has to wash all the towels! Wet Sibes must be as hard as wet Goldens and you have three times more.

    Oh yeah, rain. That’s when water falls out of the sky, right? Think I remember that…(writing from Dallas, Tx, just barely out of drought.)

    Baroooo! That’s how we roll too, I even have my own raincoat, just in case!

    It rains so rarely here in AZ I don’t have rain gear! I’ve gotten pretty soggy when we walk on those days!

    Well, duh. Of course you still go walking. It’s up to the humans to dress appropriately! But what’s up with the rain? This is WINTER. There should be SNOW! We got a little snow this week, but we’ve got another clear week ahead – clear enough that Mom’s actually going to wash her car! 😀 We’ll pray to the snow gods for you!

    Rusty you are the coolest dog on the street. Just keep your head dry and you will feel fine.

    Our Saturday rain brought with it flash flooding and severe thunderstorms. We opted to stay inside. Glad you all were able to still get walkies in!
