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.
