 I just wanted to share a story about Axel.  It has finally rained here in Northern Michigan.  Like the rest of the country,we have been in a drought.  Axel has never seen or felt rain in his life.  Now he LOVES the lake and he even likes a bath, but not the rain.  He stepped out on the porch yesterday and it was raining and he dug his heels in.  He was NOT going to go outside. Luckily he is VERY food motivated, so I did what any good momma does, I bribed him. However he just stayed on the porch under a chair watching the rain and looking at me as if to say, can you turn this off lol. He is such a character.

I know the "turn it off" face!  Boomer gets so dejected when it's raining.  I'll open the door for him, and he'll look out and then look back to me with the sad eyes like "why, mommy, why?"  He'll check back every 15 minutes or so to see if it's stopped.

Dobers have a tendancy to melt in the rain, you know.  Lake water, creeks, sometimes bath water, puddles, etc dont count....it's just rain.

Fletcher loves swimming and playing in lakes.  Hates baths and rain.  I still can't figure it out.  We have go outside with him to get him to do his business when it's raining.

Dear Axel, even though you didn't ask, I'm sending you a suggestion to give to your doting parents.

This is how a Diva handles the rain.. Think of yourself as El Divo!!!

nose bumps and air kisses

Dear Sofia -

I KNOW you must have been related to my beloved Libby. She had very similar tastes in clothing and acoutrements!

Seriously....is that a great photo, or what!

Dear Sofia,

Axel is so happy to know that their is a solution to his dilemma. He LOVES the pic and who knows, he might get his pic done the same way.  I will have to take advantage of the rain while we have it.

There is a leash that has an umbrella actually attached so you don't have to hold the umbrella just the leash it's hysterical but very functional, Pepe has asked for one for christmas for the past few years cause he hates the rain too, Ben goes and sits in the yard as if it's not raining hahahahaha

Dakota won't go out unless I do too...  Lucky for me, I have a canopy over the back deck, so I only have to go about 2 feet in the rain lol.  Once I go out, she's fine, like normal.. But if I don't go with her, she looks at me like i'm an idiot.

Bailey loves the rain! I have to rush her in where she loves being towel-tried. Yes, she is a little bit spoiled.

Wicked funny Sofia!!!  

Kaiser digs his heels in the floor, I physically have to drag him out and then he pees with his ears flat back totally depressed... I have to get a picture too funny...  He also loves the lakes, ocean, baths, just does not like the rain..

Rocky does the same as Kaiser, I have to go out on the porch and shove him off, then we play the 'I want back on' game for a couple tries before he resigns himself to the ears back, squinty eyed, I hate life pee look, then he bolts back to the door.

Kevin (my pup, not Dakota's owner ) loves the rain and water.  I swear he's like a gremlin.  You sprinkle some water on him and he turns into a hyper nutcase. Can't wait to see how he feels about snow.
