It’s raining out! It’s raining real hard and we have flood warnings. There was a big thunderstorm last night, and Dad stayed up until it was over so we wouldn't be scared, and so our ghostwriter could sleep. (She didn't hear a thing!) Usually after a thunderstorm passes the rain stops. But not this time.
My non-moistened colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens and I took a peek out the back door this morning to assess the situation. There were puddles there because the gutters overflowed. Upon seeing this deluge, Joey dog turned away and said, no way Jose! He hates getting wet! I wasn’t too keen on going out in that either, but I did do a cursory scan of the yard for squirrels and chipmunks.
I didn’t see any. I got up the nerve to make a quick foray along the foundation where mousies and shrews like to hide. If any were there recently, the rain washed their scent away. Then I realized I was getting soaked.
I went inside and had a good roll in the blanket to dry off. I decided that if this keeps up, we doggies won’t get much patrol work done; and that the invading squirrels, chipmunks, and mousies were probably staying inside their own homes as well.
After checking the weather report, I found out it's supposed to rain for the rest of the day and then for two more days. So, what do we do on a rainy Monday? Check in with our friends and family!
|Charlee Puppy got a new toy.|
|Joanna had pictures of her camping trip.|
|Jessy was trying on clothes that were not work clothes.|
|Our friend Carol sent us a picture of ponies. I love the spotted ones!|
|Jason and I made a selfie photo.|
Joey dog said I forgot to include his food section in yesterday's TDB. So here it is. These are leftovers being packed up. Dad grilled all the meat: hot dogs, sausages, and hamburgers. He made enough other food for an occupying army, so everyone got to take leftovers home with them. Don't worry. There is still plenty left in the fridge for us.
|And we just may need it if this keeps up!|
