Rain Rain Go Away

We have had quite a bit of on and off rain over the past couple of weeks - of course just when dad is motivated to get some outdoor painting done.     Couple that with the fact that Audrey REALLY likes to go out on the deck now, and you get a scene like this occurring:

Dad is a bit of a tease, and encourages us to go on the deck even if it is raining lightly, then laughs when we want to come back in again quickly.    But on this occasion, Audrey wasn't buying it.

I do have to say that the perspective on this photo is not too flattering to Audrey, and makes her look fatter than she really is!   We think she is even maybe losing s little weight, with her greater activity level here, what with the deck and chase games and all.  She even accidentally escaped down the deck stairs to the driveway yesterday, but was brought swiftly back inside for her own safety.  

Spitty asked a question about the pink thing Audrey was lying on in the picture yesterday. That is her "Princess Blanket" that her first Mom got her.   It is pink fleece, with a pink satin ruffle and a bit of black trim.    Very snazz.     When the humans brought her back to our house on the plane, her first Mom (my human sister) said if they couldn't fit her beddie in the suitcase, to PLEEZE bring the princess blanket and put it in a box or something for her.  Well, they WERE able to bring the bed, and also the blanket.    Having both those things helped make Audrey's transition to her new home a happy one.

  1. We don't mind going out in a little rain but not hard rain. Audrey, you look so pretty sitting there. Great pictures. Hope all of you have a super day.

  6. Except for our approx. 100mm of rain in four hours the other week (and subsequent serious flooding), we've been dry, dry, dry. Drought-like dry. So we'll take your gentle rain!

    BTW, sometimes Nicki gets so desperate to be out he's been known to sit in the garden in the rain, either under a hosta or somewhat protected by other plants. :-)

  9. We don't like rain either since we can't even have open windows! We're glad Audrey was caught before she got too far yesterday!

    That is so wonderful that you get your time out of the deck with your Dad. But we understand not wanting to be out there when it rains.
