Yes, I know we need rain and that we couldn't survive without it. Try telling that to Poly! She is a bit, ummmm, prissy. She doesn't like to get wet, nor does she like to step on wet grass. Last week we got a LOT of rain and it turned our backyard into a marsh because the ground was just saturated. It was to the point where the kids were drinking out of puddles. Gross! Poly wound up having an accident due to refusing to go outside. Honestly, I can't say I blame her; I sure prefer to take care of dry dogs.
It seems the ground hasn't fully dried out because puddles have already formed, making "going out" quite the chore with her. He'll gladly go out and stay there. He LOVES it outside - happy as a clam! He just shakes off the water and goes along with whatever he was doing. She shakes the water off in her little OCD way, incessantly. She won't even do her business outside, even though she stands with me.... ok, ok, she's on the leash and can't go too far, but she walks in circles and never does anything. I keep praying this doesn't result in another accident.
So, yeah, rain, rain go away!!!! Poly has to pee some day!
