Soggy Canines

We had one of those much needed but quite boring rainy days which restricted our outdoor time but still resulted in soggy canines.

This isn't the same as a walk - soggy canines
This isn’t the same as a walk

We’d like to claim we didn’t complain. After all, we needed the rain. But when the falling water interferes with our walk times and our yard times, we might have griped a little. As Typhoon sat with the Hu-Dad in the pavilion waiting on a break, his displeasure was evident. On the bright side, Hu-Dad got to smell soggy canines all day long.

    Beautiful picture, and the grass and fence look tremendous, too!

    Here in Michigan we are on day 4 of rain and mosquitoes. We would gladly share with anyone that has a drought to take it away from us. Spring has been too wet and now the bugs have moved in early. Yuck.

    Typhoon does have a point once the rain starts interfering with walks & playtime it needs to stop. Hu-Dad have you thought of bottling the wet dog smell as an air additive?? 🤣🤣

    Sitting with you and enjoying your company. Wet or not, you just want to reach out and stroke his head and tell him he is a good dog.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
