Rain Rain Go Away

Ok, rainy days with a puppy are hard! Sophie has so much energy and to try and wear her out without lots of time playing outside is difficult. We've had several rainy days in a row and it is getting old. (Although I really shouldn't be complaining when I think of all of the people affected by Hurricane Ike!) I finally broke down and did a Starbucks run for needed energy!!











Sumo has decided that it is worth putting up with Sophie in order to still be in the same room as us. She has learned to keep her distance, but occasionally just can't help herself and attacks him.














One thing that Sophie loves is to be on our lap and chew on her toys. I like to cover my legs with part of her blanket. (I took a blanket and cut it into 6 pieces for her to have in her kennel etc..) This probably won't be part of our routine once she is full grown!!








They still go outside for potty breaks and to play a bit, but have to wait to come in until I have towels ready to wipe paws and wet puppies.















Eventually Sophie is ready for a nap! We put her into her napping area and she falls asleep quickly. Sometimes in very funny positions! I really don't think she has any bones in her body the way she flops around here and there. She sleeps a bit and reenergizes and wakes up ready to go!













For Sumo, Sophie's nap time is his favorite time of the day. Doesn't he just look happy??











Until Next time...

Oh my gosh, Sophie is getting so big. She is adorable. Sumo does look happy when she is sleeping. :)

The 2 of them are just so cute together! It just cracks me up. Max really hates to go outside and do his business in this rain. We have to go out and with him, otherwise he just stands on the porch. When he can tell we're going to take him out he tries to hide, the big baby!!

Gizmo doesn't like the rain either. I am sure she is keepingy you busy.

My Springer loves the rain - he's happiest when he can swim in the rain!

Too bad they don't have indoor doggy play parks like they have for kids at MacDonalds!

Your dogs are so cute. Sumo is looking happier than he did a few days ago. Sophie will be good company for him.

My dogs love the rain! They try to get out the doggy door before we can close it.

Love the puppy and Sumo progress reports. I think Sumo looks younger than he did pre Sophie. She is growing sooo fast.
