I'm Melting, I'm Melting
Remember that line from WIZARD OF OZ? I think Moose must have watched that move and decided he would melt if he got wet! I don't guess anyone ever told him he is a great Pyrenees and pyrs were bred to watch over and protect flocks/herds year round in any kind of weather.
he gets an early morning walk while we are waiting for our "med time" to be up so we can drink our coffee and eat. have to take our thyroid med first thing when we get up and then wait at least 45 minutes before having our coffee or breakfast. Makes a good, cooler time to take Moose for walk.
This morning he and Jerry had only been back a few minutes and it started to pour the rain. All day long it varied between downpour and light rain. (our rain gauge had 5" in it).Finally stopped about 4:30 and I figured Moose would need to go out--he had eaten breakfast and drank water a couple of times since he had gotten in from walk and not been out. Well, I opened the patio door, he realized I wanted him to go out so he ran and jumped on the sofa.
We have had him 3 weeks tomorrow and he had never gotten on the living room furniture until this. The big boy was scared to get his feet wet. I finally made him go out about 5:30. He takes up about 2/3 of the sofa, if not more.
