Rainy Days, Dog Food Recall

Max, Jake and Windy prefer days like this.

A rainy day can be a challenge for housetraining, so I watch everyone go out and praise them lavishly when they take care of their business.

A soaking, overnight rain means the creek behind the house rushes loudly. When Jake, Windy and Max hear that, they think it is pouring and don’t want to go out. I persuade them otherwise. When it is raining, I know I won’t get them out.

Windy went down the ramp, took a couple steps and pooped. I told her she was wonderful then I went to do something else. I assumed she would pee. Silly me.

After breakfast I found a soaked piddle pad by the back door. I knew it was Windy’s because I saw Jake and Max pee. So the wet backyard was perfect to poop in but not pee in.

I apologize for neglecting the blog. I got consumed with work details and let writer’s block win. No major life problems, just priorities out of whack.

Also, please be aware of a dog food recall. Check here to see if you use any of these brands  http://bit.ly/KJW6Rj.

Windy demands perfect bathroom conditions.

About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
