Rainy Day Issues

Hey I know what day what you are talking about. It rained all day and into the night. Trixie starting running around the house like a crazy dog, it was about 9:30 PM. I had to go get the umbrella, pick her up and carry her outside. She ran under a tree and did her business! She was so happy after that, she hates the rain!!!!! Guess we picked a bad place to live since in the summer it rains every day!

Jackpot was NOT happy this morning when we took him out and we had blowing snow here in Denver. He kept trying to eat the snow but whent he wind started picking up and blowing the snow around he was trying to run back in the house (wouldn't go potty)…looks like he'll be trying to hold it till the snow stops blowing LOL These little dogs crack me up!

Since being with basenji's I have become amazed at their holding ability. Even with a leash ours won't go. We both get soaked and nothing accomplished. I used tp worry all that holding was unhealthy but it seems to be the basenji way. As soon as the sun arrives they go and go. If we have days of rain they will go under a tree. I keep telling them they will be much more comfortable with a empty bladder. I should have such holding ability Ha Ha. I swear they watch the morning weather report and if there is rain they say we'll maybe go tomorrow.

Kip doesn't mind the rain at all, he loves the snow! too bad I live in england he might not see it again 😞 any way back on topic… Kip doesn't like the bath (well no surprise there I don't know a dog that does like the bath) but he loves going and swimming in the pond at the park and he doesn't seem to mind the rain at all
