What's wet and falls from the sky?

Apparently it's called "rain".

Because I am a puppy, and only 7 1/2 months old, and because we've been having this thing called a "drought" since before I was born, tonight was the first time we've been for a walk in actual heavy rain. I was a bit worried at first, because it was so much like having a bath, but outside, and all around me!

But then I discovered all these little streams down the sides of the roads and between the cobbles, and I could drink from them! And then we went onto the nature strip in the middle of the road, and it was all wet and there were all these really cool smells!

And when we got home my human towelled me down, and then I gobbled up my dinner and ran around the house like a nutty puppy!

I love the rain!

My human says that on the weekend we are going to buy me a raincoat. I don't know what that is, but I bet it'll be tasty.

Hi Sasha - lovely post! We weren't sure about rain either, but being pups from the UK we've known about it first-paw since we were born! JD's favourite thing about rain is the 'on-tap' drinking resevoirs that spring up all around and Max likes getting really, really muddy. We play crazy zoomies when we're out in the rain - and then when we get home and we've been towelled down we go completely crazy! We crash around using the sofa, the carpet, the curtains, our humans - anything really - as makeshift towels to get completely dry, it's super fun! It seems to stress the humans out a bit when we do this though, we're not sure why...? We'd love to run around like a nutty puppy with you - he he! Tail wags - JD and Max.

The rain is only good to splash around in when I'm wearing my harness and my lead. I won't go out otherwise. Especially on the grass!

It must be a schnauzer thing to go crazy doing running around zoomies after we get wet. I always have to run like crazy after I get towled off!

Hi Sasha - we wondered if you would allow us to 'escort' you, virtually, to a wedding? We would be very proud and honoured to announce you as our 'plus 1' - we promise to be very gentlemanly! We've been invited to and would like to rsvp, with you as our guest - please do let us know asap! We're just choosing a collar and tie so that we look extra smart. Does your human have that tiara you sent her out for yet, he he he.....!

Um - do we have to ask permission of your uncle Bertie perhaps?! We want to do this properly you see and we're new to this sort of thing...

Tail wags - JD and Max.

Ooohhh...!!! Yes, I'd love to go to a virtual wedding with two such handsome boys!

Oh, but I don't have a thing to wear... I know, I'll go to the most fragrant part of the park and do an extra-special roll...

I can't wait, thank you so much for asking me!
