Rainy Day Blues

While better than the drought conditions of so many of our friends, we are at the end of five straight days of rain – about 3 inches (7 cm) of rain in total.  We have a serious case of rainy day blues.

more rain

Sigh. More rain. And Qannik’s fur just soaks it up like a sponge.

tired of the rain

Even the munchkin, Typhoon, who isn’t bothered by anything, is tired of the rain.

good hair day

Fuzzy Kiska says it is impossible to have a good hair day in this weather.

wrestling fun

Good thing we have big covered porches for some wrestling fun.

    Ice sez: Been nothing but hot, hot, hot, dry, dry, dry up here in the Peace Country of BC. Can’t even go for walks on the sidewalks or paved walking trails, the pavement burns my paws. The hu-Mom says this is “unprecedented” — whatever that is — for our part of the country, to have temperatures this high (30C or 86F to 35C or 95F) this many times in a row. Not even allowed to have the sprinkler on to cool off, because of something called “water restrictions” Lots of “dry lightning storms”, though, and I hate those. That’s when I go into the hu-Mom and Dad’s walk-in closet, and stay there ’til it quits.

    Definitely some lucky pups at your house! I cannot remember a more perfect summer ever for us here in the Midwest and I admit, I really don’t ever want it to end this year.

November 28, 2021

The classic movie Le Ballon Rouge (The Red Balloon) had a bouncing toy befriend a boy. My recent experience with a silver balloon, however, makes me question the uplifting tale.
