Even though it's raining, and you all know how I hate getting wet, I ran down the steps at 6:30 a.m. to take care of business. I know the rules. No coming back inside unless I "go." Another dog in our house isn't so smart. It's been 55 minutes and he is still outside. He won't come out of the doghouse on the deck to go down onto the grass. Seriously Chim? You have short hair and are fast as lightening. You could accomplish the entire task in under 30 seconds. My fur was so wet that Linda had to towel dry me and I did not whine once. Remember Chim, this week you are getting your first bath. The rain is good practice at being wet.
