Rain, Rain, Go Away!

So it has been rainy and gross (and cold!) here the past few days. The rain is troublesome for several reasons. First of all, Sadie is low to the ground, so even if it isn't currently raining, but the grass is still wet, this means Sadie's entire stomach, chest, and paws are soaking wet after a walk. (She gets soaked every day in the winter when there is snow outside!) We have a towel waiting in the garage for these occasions. Sadie gets a good rubdown before we go back in the house.

The main problem is, Sadie generally refuses to go outside if it is raining, and if she does go out, she refuses to walk on the grass! She is a stinker. If it's really pouring out, she will look outside, look back at me, and run inside again. She's like, nah, I'll hold it! It gets a bit frustrating though if she actually does go outside, but won't walk on the grass (which is the only place she will go to the bathroom). So now not only is she getting soaked, but I am as well! Needless to say, this is what happened this morning. I tried taking her out twice before I left for work, to no avail. Hopefully she will be ok until my aunt gets home to take her out. I am sure she will be. It just gives me something ELSE to worry about all day now haha.

Two Friday pics for everyone...One of Sadie in her Gators raincoat (my alma mater), and one cute corgi butt! Happy Friday! :)


  1. so true about those corgis; they are so low to the ground! Koda loved the snow but hates rain; go figure! can you pick her up and put her out on the grass to take care of her business or will she bolt for the door!

    cute pictures of her though :)


  2. Yeah, she'll just run right off the grass and back into the house haha. She's a brat! I just feel bad, because then she holds it! I try to take her out as much as I can when I'm home, but if she refuses to go, there's not much I can do! Thanks about the pics :)

  3. We have a back enclosed patio and if it is really raining, OC & Dott won't go outside, they will go in the patio, which is allowed as we have a free access doggy door and I don't like muddy, wet corgis in on us or drying off by rolling on our bed! There is also a "night light" that is on in the patio because Dott is afraid of the dark. Now the pups are sometimes using it at night, too, which I guess is better than getting eating by the owl!

    One of the first corgis we fostered looked an awful lot like your Sadie... I might have mentioned that... but she has a tail. I might try to post a picture of her in my blog tonight so you can see her.

  4. Oh, I'd love to see a picture!
