And Then What To My Wondering Eyes Should Appear

Folks - we got a lot of rain yesterday. Over 3 inches in a 24 hour period. I know some of you will scoff at this piddly amount. But you must understand that normally we get MAYBE 15 inches of rain in a year. And the December normal is under 3 inches for the whole month. We got that in one day. It was a little unsettling because the roads were flooding, the creeks were rising, and my back yard was squishy and wet. Every time I came indoors from doing my bidness, I had to endure a total TOWELING. I put it right up there with WATERBOARDING for torture devices! Awful.

But then this morning I walked outside to do my THING and know what? The air smelled so clean and fresh. It tickled my whiskers and made my lungs so happy. And when the sun came up, through the clouds which are hanging around and threatening more rain - I saw the RAINBOW. It was so lovely and magical. So we were a little inconvenienced by some rain (to hear the television stations talk it was nearly Armageddon). If I could wake up to this beauty every day . . . I'll suffer through it.


Happy Weekend EveryPuggy!

I'm glad you're getting some rain, I think you needed it! We don't like to go out in the rain to do our bidness but we think being toweled off is one of the funnest things in the world! We all try to butt in on each other be the first one!

We thought a lot about you guys when we were watching the news and wondered if momma had to get out her canoe and paddle you all to safety....we sure hoped not. What a beautiful picture...we are supposed to get rain for the next four days so that means a muddy swamp in the back yard, also known as the barn yard by dad and lots of muddy paws....stellie rose

We have a swimming pool in our backyard! But no rainbows. You are one lucky pug to have such good owners that they give you a toweling off when you come in. We do "pugnuts" when we get toweled off - run, run, silly running.
Glad you are safe and dry.
