What’s A Little Rain Hurt?

Some people might think a rainy day would interfere with one or both our walks, but what’s a little rain hurt when we’re strolling along?

Stormy weather moved into the Asheville region and we aren’t complaining. The hot temperatures have cooled down to a more normal range and we needed the water in the ground. We didn’t even miss either of our Monday walks despite the constant drizzle. What’s a little rain hurt anyway?

    Ruby loves the rain and coolness. 2 90 degree days in May in NY was too much for her.

    We walk in rain too but now the mosquitoes come out worse in the rain so we cannot without getting eaten.

    I love how Sibes are all weather dogs, or at least most of them are, most of the time. Does the extra wet help the extra fluff come out of Frankie’s coat, as it does with our red head?

    Sweetie pie Frankie doesn’t seem to mind.

    rain with cooler temps is wonderful! I’m glad you got to walk in it.
    we hadn’t had any in so long that just the sound and the smell of it was Heaven! XO

    Nope-rain is good and as long as the herd goes for their walks-all is good in the world!
