The rain has arrived in Southern California, and as many of you know dachshunds and rain don’t generally mix well. My spoiled and pampered pooches do not like going out in the cold, wet and damp. What many call Storm watch, we call Pee and Poop Watch. We have to wait for breaks in the rain to race outside and eliminate. We’re making do, and hope everyone else in the world is staying dry and warm. Have a wonderful day dachshund friends.

    Poor babies they sure don’t like the rain. They need to stay in.

    ha-ha!! I live in Seattle!! My doxies have to learn to go in the rain!! Not that Frieda likes it & if it is pouring, there is no way. If she sees me grab an umbrella & hat, she cowers & refuses to go.
    So, I know the waiting game for a break in the weather….we play that game a lot.

    These photos made me smile. Lily seems the least fazed by the weather, Emily’s expression looks like “Help” and Rufus looks like he’s thinking “I’m braving the storm but don’t like it”. My Brandy usually loves to meander but makes quick trips in and out when raining. My late doxie, Angel, used to crack me up. She HATED the rain or getting her feet wet. As we know, our doxies are smart (sometimes too smart!) and, when raining, my Angel would “fake squat”…she would squat to make me think she was going but got up way too fast. Busted…no going inside till she was done 😉 Here’s to the sun coming out again. BTW Rufus, Emily and Lily look very fashionable in their rainwear!! xo Joy

    they are looking very fashionable – never heard of the fake squat but you are so right now that I think about it….I swear sometimes my Niko tip toes outside, but thank goodness they are paper and grass trained whew
