A Break In The Rain

Yesterday the rain stopped. The clouds hung around, but we got a chance to get outside and run around a little.

Look at all the water that collected in the wading pool. That's from the rain over the past two days.

Of course, it drew the dogs' attention. Even though they've been unhappy about being wet for five days, they had to test out the water in the pool.

I called Norma Jean out of the water and she looked very pleased with herself.

These dogs do make me laugh sometimes. You all know that Bailey is very attached to her monkey and carries him everywhere with her. But a monkey is no use in the rain, so today Bailey left him in the house and carried her duck outside with her.

A duck can take care of himself in the wet conditions we're having. No, I didn't set this up, she chose the duck all by herself.

Around dinner time the thunder started again and soon it was raining. More is on the way today.

We've heard quite a few ducks quacking around the house lately... pretty soon they'll be moving in!

That is just too funny about the duck - smart pup knows how to take care of the treasured toys:)

The sun has been trying so hard to come out here for two days now, but the clouds seem to win out all the time. And it is oddly cold here. Guess that is keeping the bad storms away from us.

We just can't believe all the rain you are getting. Paws crossed for a change in the pattern ASAP.

Bailey is hilarious with her toys!

We've had ferocious thunderstorms the past 2 nights, for hours. One night I had to sit on the floor with Thor, because he was so frightened I thought he might have a heart attack, and the second night I woke Dan and told HIM to sit on the floor, since he's younger and more flexible. At least we've had a few hours of sunshine during the day. I hope your skies clear up soon. Of course, in a few short weeks, we'll all be whining about the heat.

It's funny how water in the pool is somehow better than water falling from the sky.

I am not surprised about their attitude toward water. I hate being pelted by rain, but I don't mind walking around in the water.

What I really love is swimming in the deep stuff!

We are getting lots of rain here, too. I am tired of it - it is almost worse than the snow! Hoping for sunshine for all of us.

Your pal, Pip

Our Spring was like that...lots of rain. We didn't have the thunder though.

How funny of Bailey to decide to take the duck instead of Monkey...BOL!

Hope it dries out for you soon.
