Play in the puddles…

When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles

Pooh Bear

Tap, Tap, Tap

Goes the child against the door

Drip, Drip, Drip

Raindrops roll from coat to floor

Wag, Wag, Wag

Tail of the eager dog

Great, big, sigh

This is going to be a slog

Please, please, please 

Says the one who can barely talk,

Even in this weather?

Looks like we’re going for a walk

Whoosh, whoosh, whoosh

Goes the Invasive wind

Splash, splash, splash 

The child and dog grin

Thud, thud, thud

Throbs my beating heart

Smile, smile, smile

Happiness is an art. 

When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles.

Regardless of the weather and whether you’ve been home all day or just walked in, a walk is always welcome in our house, especially a walk with puddles. My little guy and the four-legged old lady both conquered the puppy dog eyes long ago. They have no regard for an imposition the wet walk may cause. However, often those two know better and after we’re home dried and snuggled back under a blanket, I too must succumb to the notion that the walk was a good idea.

Feeling the rain

Some woofies love the rain – I mean really, what is that all about?…dog in the rain

…I’m more of a snuggle in my bed kinda gal! Millie asleep

If I have to go walk I at least think I should be allowed to walk around puddles (well I do only have little legs) and my owner has to walk through them (she wears wellies, don’t see what the big deal is myself), but she’s never too keen on that idea.

Now if there is a ball to chase in the rain, I might feel differently. 🙂
