Rain, rain: Yes, we need it. Yes, every drop is precious. But when it is pissing down like that, turning the street into a river, and you have to take your dog out, it can be a challenge. Especially when said dog hates the rain, locks her legs, and refuses to budge. And refuses to do her business, I might add. You end up having to carryher home in the rain, looking like a right proper fool (that’s you, not the dog). And then there is the lovely aroma, Eau de Damp Dog, which lingers in the apartment.
But we finally get enough of a break to manage a few walks. On Shabbat morning, Terri links up with Archie and Snoopy and has a great time. Later, we meet Dash and that little Jack Russel (name unknown). Archie appropriates Terri’s new ball, which happens to be a squeeze toy. Takes a fair amount of pressure to get it to squeak, so Terri never even knew that it could make noise. Archie, a massive German shepherd, chomps on the ball and looks quite startled when it squeaks.
New day, same crap: This old political cartoon was first published in Switzerland in 1956. Seems like nothing has changed.
