OTHER THAN THAT......

***********************

we will set aside $6 for jody's bail money - in case she gets arrested for peeing in the rain.


the rest of that story is... she is from texas

*********************

It is raining. Real rain. It has been raining for four hours now. Slow soaking rain. I know you probably don't understand my joy. Especially since Danes and rain don't seem to mix.

We haven't had any rain to speak of in three months. The wildfires have even come close to my house and I live in a very populated area in Arlington between Dallas and Fort Worth. It is scary when someone can set off a fire that burns 1,000 houses and hundreds of thousands of acres of land just by being stupid. One spark from a saw set off a big blaze the other day. It took two days for firemen to contain it.
This is the worst it has ever been in Texas in recorded history. I know the rain tonight won't cure it, but it will help.

Stormy opened the back door several times to go out. She looks at the rain and backs up and closes the door.


I have never understood the Great Dane attitude about rain and walking on wet grass when it is raining. None of mine will go out to pee even it they have to wait 24 hours. I have even gone out with them under an unbrella with me getting soaked while they just stand and look at me like I am out of my mind if I think they will pee when it is raining.
Yet, Stormy will sink herself into the stock pond mud up to her neck and sit. Cinder will go in, but she will only stand in the water and mud up to her belly.
I have to force them out of the house if the grass is just wet from rain. No sense at all. Or maybe they have some good sense and we just don't know what it is. Dogs seem to be a lot smarter than humans a lot of the time.
I hear more thunder. Rain, water, cool clear water and finally a break from the 100+ degrees. I think I will go out and pee in the yard to celebrate even if my dogs won't. If I get arrested, come bail me out, will you please?
