We were told there was only about a 20% chance of rain for today but we were all surprised (especially the guy next door who was out wasting water washing his truck) when it started sprinkling yesterday afternoon which developed into full on rain overnight. I woke up about 4am to the sound of the rain on the metal glider out front. I opened the window a bit to listen to it but it was just a little too loud so the window was shut again. Millie spent most of the night under my covers, where every once in awhile I have to make her scoot over a bit.
Since she doesn't want to go outside this morning and it doesn't look like we'll be getting a walk in today, I put a piddle pad in the bathroom on the rug that she has peed on a few times in desperation. Plus it's a really soft rug and must feel like grass to her. She hasn't used the pad yet but Mimi thought it looked like a good thing to sit upon.
She got a bouncy ball, a bunny rabbit toy and a pirate octopus that I haven't give to her yet. The new theme for dog toys is pirates and they had some cute ones. No, dogs aren't spoiled or anything.
She proceeded to methodically chew off two of the bunny's legs, and then later in the day a third one so he only has one leg left at this point. Not for long, though, I'm sure the last leg will be coming off today.
Anyway, I'm going to enjoy the rain today for as long as it lasts. Of course yesterday I vacuumed and shampooed the carpets just in time for rain and mud to be tracked in.
