Singing in the Rain

The fun part of any group of canines is that you get to know their eccentricities. For example, what member of The Herd is most likely to be found singing in the rain?


Someone’s fur coat is looking recently toweled.

Typhoon can sometimes be found playing in the rain, and sometimes taking cover, but Qannik seems to have a consistent pattern of hanging out in the rain.

Hu-Dad will explain the hanging fur in the fence posts in just a moment.

Just yesterday, Q was napping on the covered porch when a storm rolled in. Q picked that exact moment to go hang out in the yard.

    I am in need of one of those super duper “blowing coat” coat blowers. Do you know where can I find one?

      We included a link to Amazon in the story. It is also available from many dog show sites and dog supply stores.

Undercarriage Dog Wash

June 3, 2013 |

Q-tip loves hanging out in the yard, particularly on a rainy, muddy day like Sunday—even if it does mean he needs an undercarriage dog wash.
