    Default Rain? What rain?

    I'm sure some of you also have dogs that baulk at the front door when they see it is raining outside. Mine have no choice -- they STILL have to go out for a walk as I don't have a garden for them to use to do their business! If Jaspar's last walk was a reluctant one in the rain, he will suspiciously stick his nose against the ground-level mail slot in the front door to see if it smells like rain outside before thinking of a walk again.

    So how come they will INSIST on running around in the rain if we are in the park? On Friday I got them all ready for a trip to the park and just as we got in the car it started to rain. I thought it might stop so drove over there anyway but it just rained even more. The dogs were barking to get out so out we went. I thought they'd want to get back in, but no. To top things off Jaspar of course found a nice ditch with a nice mucky swamp of a puddle and ran right down into it.

    So here they are, two soggy little dogs, happily eating grass in the rain.

    How cute!! I love how Abbey looks when she's wet! She loves the rain as well, although after the rain stops and the worms come out, she's in heaven!!

    My 6 are exactly the same! They LOVE eating long grass when it is raining. But ask them to go out in the wet back garden to do their business... NO chance!
    Love the photo!

    Joey refuses point blank to go out in the rain. I have to literaly pick him up and put him down out on the street. He stands right at the door with his nose in the air as if saying "Im not going out in that. Im of royal breeding you know" !!!!

    Ok, this thread made me LOL!! Our tri Murphy HATES to go out in the rain. He only goes with a big push out the door. Then he does a beautiful ballerina impression walking on his tippy toes so as not to get his feet too wet!

    I've gotta get a good shot of pathetic goof Teddy next time it rains.
    Last week, we had steady rain and I put his Land's End blue rain coat on and he just FREEZES in the kitchen..will not budge...looks like a statue as I pick him up and put him OUT. On the deck he proceeds to NOT proceed anywhere....just stands like a statue getting his head soaking wet as well as his tail.......That STUBBORN boy held his pee and poo ALL DAY! I got home from work and he finally relieved himself outside.
    Oh, and the sun was out by then.

    We tried using rain coats. Here's our Duffy embarassed beyond his limits. The look on his face says it all!

    that's a beautiful refreshing looking picture of leo and jaspar in tall wet grass. I don't know why they don't like the home rain but they like the park rain--unless it's something to do with the altered state of consciousness dogs go into when on an outing to some place they really love. some kind of transformation is going on.
