Us Lurchers do NOT like to get wet

Those of you keeping an eye on the news will know that we have been inundated with rain recently. So much so that there were floods in the garden and everywhere else around. Us dogs barked when the trees blew down and the dog toys in the garden washed up to the back door, but fortunately we kept our paws dry.

That was Friday and on Saturday things looked a little brighter, so the humans decided to drag us out for a walk. But their weather sense is rubbish, as we walked over the hills the skies opened, and we had to shelter under a tree.

As you can see - I was NOT impressed

> Then we had to trudge home, in the rain, and the thunder, and the lightning.
Even the Dogfather got soaked, and he was not impressed, though AlphaB thought it was funny (she has a strange sense of humour)

As we walked home we were treated to a small ray of sunshine:

I'm happy to say Sunday has been MUCH brighter.

We have plenty of sunshine.

Perhaps we should do a trade-off.

Maybe not. I don't like rain either.

Hey Doggies,
I am in total agreement with you
all I hate getting wet.
I hope you all are dry and safe.

Love and Licks
Texas (and his humans).

Prince thinks the excess rain is my fault, and has increased the frequency of 'bullying'. I'm amused by the term 'boofing' - could you provide a description of exactly what it means? I suspect I get 'boofed' daily....

So bad you don't like to get wet. I love water, coming from the sky or simply from the shower!
Have a nice day

It's raining here too. But at least I'm not outside in it!

Beautiful rainbow picture, by the way. :)

Ooo, I had to create an account!

Sorry to tell you Boots, but we had a beautifully sunny weekend here. But... last week we also had underwater gardens. Luckily we rescued the dog toys before they drowned.
