I find it interesting how few people here walk their dogs in the rain--we will walk unless it is coming down in torrents, hailing, or thundering and lightning. Toby isn't thrilled about getting wet, but he manages just fine!

If it's raining hard its usually a "go go go, pee pee pee!!" then a run back into the house LOL.

Some days when it just pours all day you don't have a choice.

We bought a nice rain jacket for Lola. I live in the Seattle area as well. The jacket keeps her whole back side dry- only her head and feet get wet. It just sheds the rain off of her- and on cold days it keeps her warm.

Buddy loved going out in the rain because when he came in, he got "toweled down". All you had to do is show him the towel, he would get all excited. LOL!!!!

It depends on how hard it is actually raining out. If it is a downpour, I say no until it calms down a little.
