I love walking Riley in the rain.
If it's an absolute downpour, we don't go because he doesn't want to be out there anyway. He'll just stand there, squinting and looking at me like "Why are we out here?" But if it's just a steady rain, I throw on my rain gear and we head out for our normal walks. He thinks it's just fabulous.
Riley avoids puddles like the plague and is way too prissy to drink from them, anyway, so it's not a concern for me. But I wouldn't let him do it, if he wanted to. I'd worry about all the nasty stuff in that water (pesticides, bacteria, etc.) and I would worry about Lepto.
