Rainy days

We got some rain yesterday in sunny SoCal and I manage to get a few pictures of Lily in our “dachshund pack slicker.” We do not endorse or recommend this raincoat because in all honesty it’s the least effective protective gear for our low-riding dachshunds available in the marketplace. I’m certain the jacket does better for long-legged pooches but it offers zero protection to our dachshunds’ undercarriage – and when it’s wet and muddy outside, they especially need shielding down under. But we bought the yellow poncho nearly 10 years ago before I knew better, and… I have photographed both Rufus and Emily in it so it was only natural that I grab a few of Lily in it. It truly looks like she’s wearing a canary yellow trash bag. Hope you enjoy the pictures nonetheless and everyone is keeping dry and warm.

    Lily Blossom doesn’t need to drown in the rain, she’s drowning in her raincoat.
