It was a rainy, rainy day here in the DMV area today. It was the kind of cold rain that makes you want to curl up in bed and never get out from under the covers. Housing a younger pit bull type dog though, you often times can’t give in to that urge to be totally lazy on a rainy day. While you as the human thinks the idea of not moving all day is great, your bouncy canine counterpart might not agree.
Even though Bax is more than happy to sleep all day and wouldn’t protest staying in the house at all, I still feel bad if he is cooped up without getting an evening walk. I know he’ll sleep no matter what, but I’d rather give him a good reason to. So tonight, despite the rain, we put on our wet weather gear and went for our walk.
Now I know he looks rather unamused in these iPhone pictures, but don’t let that fool you. He happens to have this really sneaky way of looking totally pathetic, even if he doesn’t mean it. He still trotted happily along for the whole walk. He threw in a few extra body shimmies but I think that was just for effect.
After about twenty minutes, we both came home a little soggy.
But Bax said it was okay and he still loved me even though I made him walk in the rain.
