HOW HOW HOW does one make a cocker go to the bathroom during a non-stop rain?!? We go out with two umbrellas, one to cover her (she doesn't like her raincoat) and another for us (yes it takes two) and all she wants to do is smell the rabbit tracks. She won't go! She absolutely hates going in the rain. Poop? Forget it!

And then there's the hairdryer and toweling down when she comes in...It's been more than 9 hours since her morning pee and these are the faces she made when i asked if she wanted to go outside. She proceeded to go to her bed and show me her belly with a defiant expression.

Arggh!

Poor baby! Weather.com shows it to be sunny and 64 right now, so I'm hoping she has been able to go outside and go.

I also hope you all came through the storm okay. I can't imagine how scary that must have been.

LOL I'm only laughing cause I can relate! :ROFL

Hope you were able to get her to go. She's got to be uncomfortable... but she sure is cute! Love the pictures! Stay safe!

I towel Chessie off but I don't bother with a blow dryer.

Thank you, Lisa, Susan - we did get her to go in the pouring sheets of rain in the evening. She did a good job on both and got us soaked, too.

Busy with yard clean up today. Lots of downed trees around the neighborhood and our basement got some water, but other than that, we're good!

Cici is loving the weather today and she can go to her belly's content.
