Rainy Thoughts

Showers, fog, and gloom have enveloped Asheville the last several days, so Typhoon shares some rainy thoughts.

Why has our warm sunshine abandoned us this week? How many puddles can I splash through during our walks? Why can’t I dig giant holes in the mud just because the clumsy humans fall in them? Will I be subjected to the towel again rather than being able to share this glorious rain wherever I shake? Why is Hu-Dad pointing a camera at me rather than feeding me treats?

    Do you remember Saturday Night LIve and “deep thoughts by Jack Handy”. He was an actual writer on the show. I use that sometimes and substitute my dogs thoughts for the saying.

    Don’t worry Typhoon, Miss Ruby has been doing the snow dance since the 1st!! She is so tired of the rain.

    Typhoon-I cannot answer about the sunshine BUT IF the HU-Dad were to fall in one of your holes-maybe the walks wouldn’t be possible! Shaking rain all over the house is messy too. As far as your treats-I’m sure you get many!!!
