Rainy Day Dog

I kind of dread taking Pappy on a walk following a rain. The moisture brings out all the smells. This morning he spent the entire walk with head cocked down and nose glued to the ground, constantly straining to follow some scent. Every damp spot on the pavement and every soggy phone pole is alive with olfactory sumptuousness. The world stinks, and Pappy loves it.

Pappy is learning the news from the neighborhood. Too bad they can't share it with us.

Peanut and Flash are like this also. Takes a lot longer to take a walk

I once rolled in the most intoxicating smell and brought it home with me. Got a bath for it, too. People are funny.

I wish that only happened on walks after the rain, it happens on every freakin' walk we go on, I find myself telling the pups, we just did this walk this morning, WHAT ARE YOU SMELLING NOW!

Sometimes, you can hardly call it a "walk" at all!

Pappy, we think you should have the You Make My Day award. Reading your blog always makes our day!

Yep, as Jan said, just reading the doggy newspaper. :)
