Yesterday we had 50ish temps and a gentle rain. That was the first time Tal has actually been out in a gentle rain. I figured he wouldn't like it but low and behold he did! So I got the leash and off to the park we went! He had a ball. And when we got home, I dried him off with "his" towel...I always use it on him and he enjoys that part as much as playing in a lake or the gentle rain!
They can surprise us. My girls don't mind a gentle rain but Molly does not like to go out in a heavy down pour. :
Puff L-O-V-E-S being towel dried. ;D ;D ;D

Mine must not be real labs. They don't like to swim and hate to go out in the rain!
Cinnamon loves the rain in fact she will butt tuck in a thunder storm if we let her.
She loves to be towel dried. As she comes and goes through the laundry room if the weather is bad (keeps the mud out of the family room where the patio door she usually uses is) we put her towel in the dryer and turn it on if it's a cold rain when she goes out. She just melts in moans of pleasure if she is dried with a warm towel she loves it best when we wrap it around her face.
Nope, Aries is like this too.Originally Posted by Linda1
Tal hates it when it rains hard and he refuses to go out in a downpour unless he is about to pop. Then he runs..full speed...to the back door to come in! Goober.Originally Posted by Linda1
Fanny doesn't like hard rain otherwise she doesn't care a bit about going out - out is a trip to her. Eddie on the other hand hates all water other than what is in his bowl!
When we go to the park I bring a towel with me and dry Fanny off in the back of the SUV before we go home. Eddie loves this too! He will push his way in front of her to get toweled off, and he isn't even wet, Goofy dog. Fanny just stand there and waits and loves every minute.
its really wet and windy here today im going to grab my wellies in a minute as i know alfie hates not getting his walk lol
I love how Tal is always up for a new adventure!
Ruffy doesn't mind getting caught in the rain (that's happened on many walks) and is reluctant to go out in the rain.
He Loves Loves Loves getting towel-dried. Gives me paw and everything . . .
