Rain, rain, go away.

We have had several days of rain.  We were ready to put on our life jackets just in case.   It has made us four very bored dogs.   If we go outside to play we get wet and muddy, then when we come back in we get yelled at.  It makes playing in the water easy, there are puddles everywhere.    Above, I am on the left, Daisy is laying down, then Bella and on the far right is Abby.    Below, Abby is on the left. 

We posed for our portraits in the front doorway to keep from getting bored.  I don't know how it happened that all four of us were dry at the same time.   We did go through all of our new toys during the two days of rain, how do we recycle them now?  What else can we do to keep physically fit?    Tonight the rain will turn to snow and we will have one last chance to romp in the white stuff.   For our Siberian brothers and sisters back East, eat your hearts out!    We may get 3 feet in some places in the hills, so look out tomorrow, we will be making first tracks early in the morning. 

Daisy has continued her training in case she has to "go native".   She is worried that she may end up homeless again if things don't work out.   She says that being a foster is a very uneasy way to live.  She looks forward to finding her Forever Home, but just in case she does not get a good home, she will continue with her survival training.   This afternoon she silently treed an open can of cat food on top of the counter and managed to kill it, then she proceeded to eat it because as a good hunter you are always told not to waste game when you hunt.   The humans did not understand her need to practice her hunting skills, they were upset again.   Maybe when they read my blog they will understand why she feels that a lady needs to have choices in life.   After all, there is more to life than just "fetch".    Besides, that can of cat food may have been threatening someone's life.    You can never be too careful.

  1. Oh, I wished I lived closer so I could meet Daisy and introduce her to my Trixie. Trixie is scared of other dogs at first - I bet with her survival training, she could teach Trixie to not be afraid. I hope Daisy and Abby will find forever homes soon so they can relax and have good thoughts for a change.

  2. Oh Mogley, what an exiting life you live. You are even going to get more snow. It is thundering in the distance right now and a storm is coming out of the Gulf our way. We are just getting under mommies bed and wait till it get's better. Daisy, you better stop that hunting and fall in line.
    Stay dry you guys, we will try the same.

  3. I will tell my Mom to not complain about four muddy paws, when Mogley's humans have to contend with sixteen muddy paws. Hello?!

  4. Oh! Mom just wants to come hug all of you! And, I want to come play! Yay! Snow or mud, I'm in :)

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

  5. That can of cat food might have seriously attached the family! You should be glad she neutralized it!
