It's really wet out. It's been raining so much my people had to dig big ditches in my backyard last week because we had a lake forming and a stream running towards our house!
The paths are flooding in the park when we go for walks and the place I played with Pawsy is called the "rice patty" by the humans.
The big raindrops fall in my ears and my eye-bah-balls! I don't like it when it does that! My people tell me I'd be much happier if I'd wear a rain hat but Boo-Dog doesn't wear no stinkin' hats.
My people said we already had 2 months of rain this month and that's before we started getting all this rain yesterday and we're supposed to get 3 more inches today and tomorrow. That will make it almost 3 months of rain by the weekend.
I saw my rehab vet last week. My woman was given "home work" to do by the vet - she's supposed to massage muscles on my legs to keep them loose. My knee is still healing. The vet said the only time she felt "drawer movement" was when she bent my knee past 90 degrees. I did the underwater treadmill later.
I was supposed to do the underwater treadmill tomorrow but I had some tummy issues this week. My people think it's because I ran out of the food my people brought and the vet tech gave me a ton of treats that looked like big dog food.
My people started feeding me chicken and making sure I was drinking more water. My tummy feels much better but they don't want me to stress my tummy. My woman is going to find a squeeze tube to put my food in so I can't eat it so fast.
My wetlands just below the house has beavers and Nutria!
The Nutria are really interesting. I like to sit and watch them. I always stop to see if I can see the Nutria and I sniff to see if I can find one. I thought I should be able to go up to one that was only 3 feet away but my person said I couldn't go visit with.
I like the beaver too. I haven't seen it yet but I can smell it!
There's also an Egret sometimes. The Egret is the most fascinating thing I've ever seen. I'll ignore everything but Nutria if I see the Egret.
We almost got run over by a coyote last weekend. We were going to go on a trail but it wasn't the right one so we turned around and the coyote got scared by me and ran off for the street. That was the way we were going and it almost hit us! I was a good girl and didn't chase it because of my bad knee. It was smaller than I was so probably just a kid!
I like to go up to the vet clinic by our house and see if anyone is there to give me treats. I know the vehicles the 2 morning vet techs drive so, if I see those cars in the parking lot, I go up to say hi. If the people are in the cars and the windows are open, I get to rear up so my paws are inside the door and give kisses.
One of the vet techs didn't realize I was there when I reared up. She heard me breathing and went "Ahhh!" then saw it was me and laughed!
I've been able to play with a couple of dog buddies. We each had a toy and got to trot around the park together.
