Undercarriage Dog Wash

Qannik loves hanging out in the yard.  Some of you might think that a day like yesterday would be the exception, with a steady, falling rain.  Sometimes, we think Q likes rainy days the best.

No need to get wet
Uh, Q, you do realize that we can go inside or hang out on our covered porches? No need to get wet.
perfect weather
Why would I want to do that when the weather is so perfect?

And what do you mean I am going to need an undercarriage dog wash?

P.S. – Picture all of that fur as a giant, 60lb cotton ball. Then picture that cotton ball after sitting in the rain all day. Now, pretend the cotton ball wants a hug. Hu-dad says it is important to imagine that to get the true essence that is Qannik on a rainy day.

    That doesn’t quite capture the olfactory element, a giant, 60lb *smelly* wet cotton ball 😉
