Thursday – A Little Personal – Lucy and Twiggy Face the Rain

Lucy and Twiggy

“Okay, Ladies. Time to go out.”

“It’s raining out there.”

Lucy and Twiggy

“I just hate the rain, Lucy.”

“I know how you feel. The boss is not moving, though.”

“Which way you going?”

“Not sure, Little One. The rain seems to be coming down everywhere.”

“Oh, this is great. We have a wind chill of 44 degrees, and the door is closed.”

“Give it a whine and cry, Twiggy. That always works.”

“Here comes dad, Lucy.”

“I’ll put on my sad face. Maybe it’ll hurry him up.”

“Hey, Little One. This towel is for me.”

“You can share. I’m freezing.”

“So now you want to play with Flamingo?”

“What better way to warm up?”

“Hey, boss. Any chance for a treat? We survived the rain of 2020.”

“That’s pretty funny, Lucy. Who is going to straighten the mess you two made?”

“If you mean the mussed up couch cover, pillow on the floor, clownfish, Benny bones, and Flamingo strewn about, that’s all Twiggy.”

“I see a spec of dirt here, Lucy. That’s on you.”

  4. Your sweet pups know the proper spot on a rainy day is on the couch wrapped in a nice blanket. 😁 Hope your weather improves soon, John. It’s been chilly here in Florida, too. Ready for some sun!

    You’re lucky. We have to go out with Maddie. She won’t “go” if we’re not with her.

    1. These two are the same. I ran inside to get a towel leaving them out there. Hence the abandoned look. Thanks, Dan

      1. OK, you’re a good boy, John. Maddie goes nuts until we dry her head. She couldn’t care less about her feet, but she hates having a wet head.

  11. They survived the rain of 2020, lol. When it’s cold outside, my mom gets a towel fresh from the dryer and spreads it on the floor of their screened porch so her cat doesn’t get cold paws. Maybe you shouldn’t mention it to Lucy and Twiggy – they might expect the same.

  14. Oh, yes. Rain is not any doggie’s friend, especially when it’s cold. My son-in-law has taught their BorderDoodle to come in and sit on a rug while we wipe her feet. It’s really cute. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing these two with us, John!

  15. Dallas and I sympathize. We, too, have had more than our share of rain this winter. At least your girls don’t have long, double coats — “eau de wet dog” isn’t a particularly popular fragrance!
