Rain and Rules

We ended up getting both our morning and evening walk (and the humans did their mid-day bicycle ride), but the weather made scheduling a challenge. We had to dodge showers to fit our important tasks into the day. When we finally made it outside, we had the trails mostly to ourselves, so the rules didn’t really matter.
