Dog walking fall mantra: Rain, rain go away!

AnchorageOctober 28, 2013 

I skipped our morning walk today. I don't do that often, but there wasn't a break in the rain from the time I got up until the time I had to go to work -- more than 3 hours. I feel so guilty.

Do you ever skip your walks because of weather?

I honestly think the dogs were fine with it this morning. They went out back and did their business, so they knew what was going on with the weather. They were content to lie around the house while I played and worked on the laptop. On a normal day, they would have been harassing me to go out.

If it lasts another day, I'll put the rain gear on myself and the little dogs and put up with it. But today was our skip day. I'm sure they'll be bouncing off the walls when I get home from work.
