My dogs do not understand this rain thing.
Why is it when it rains, our girl doesn't go outside, but she is perfectly content to put us in a bath with water pouring off our heads?
Why they tell us to go chase the stick in the water, but then when we find sticks on our own floating past they get frantic and say NO?
If the view is good next to the river, isn't it even better in the river?
After being cooped up all day, the first thing to do is to run circles in the yard, bark at the squirrels and tackle each other. But our girl is afraid of this muddy paw thing, so instead we are stuck chasing a ball in the living room. Wasn't it time to get muddy yet? Can't you just give us one of those rain showers in the bathroom afterward?
Why do my walks keep getting shorter and shorter?
Loop Trail at 19th St. today was flooded both ways- but for those still looking for exercise go to the Empire St. entrance which still has several miles of walkable trails.One of the native plants that is loving all the wet is Woods' rose, Rosa woodsii. If you get close to the water, you are likely to see and smell this plant in bloom.
