You're right, this is an amusing problem in our normally drought-ridden clime. The rain slicker will help.

To our two dog-hating posters, you'll note I don't comment about children's issues, with the exception of L.A. education in general since my husband's a teacher, on this board since I don't have kids and it wouldn't be relevant. If you don't want to relate to domestic pet animals, which is your choice to not have them, you're maybe not the best advisors for those of us who do.
i 100% agree with you.

i could never leave my dog outside or treat him like he is less than part of my family.

leaving him outdoors in the elements is NOT an option.

ok, so they are aminals, and so are we. last time i checked, we are in the Kingdom Animalia. that means we're animals too. any animal will seek shelter from the rain or cold.

an animal tied to a tree can't do that.

lol.. blitzkrieg should sport some lederhosen!

hehe.. i'd so have to take a pic of that

Our younger dog hates it so much, its very hard to get her outside. She can hold it for HOURS!!! She would rather lie there in pain because her bladder is going to burst than go out!

We put up our EZ Up last night for the dogs - yes, they are a little spoiled. But that way they will go out.

Good thing it doesn't rain too often!
LOL my dog tip-toes too. it's funny watching him. you would think he is walking on lava. i did get him to pee and poop today when we had a break in the rain ( a full TWO days).. he was NOT going outside..

even then my son had to hold an umbrella for him so he wouldn't get *too* wet. lol

i'm with the other poster, they just need booties.

funny though, when i take him to the beach, he's ALL paws in. he will splash in the ocean or swim in our pool. he just hates rain.

so do i.

LOL. My dog is the same way. She's a big ol 120lb mastiff and when I open one of my back doors she hesitates, then just seem to tip toe outside to do her business then she'll run back in the house.

if no one has ever seen a dog tip toeing in the rain i swear they're missing out.

it must just feel weird to them. like their paws aren't used to wet pavement and the rain on the grass must dilute the scent my dog goes for or something. he won't sniff the tree or the grass during the rain.. he just sorta tip toes out with his tail between his legs, does his business.. and drags me back into the apartment.

i dont blame him, i like looking at rain, or i like when it rains, but i don't like being out in the rain.
