Yesterday it was raining and cold in Seattle so of course Darwin had no desire to be outside. Of course since we do live in Seattle, she'll have to get used to the rain, so I took her to Marymoor to test a theory. Juneau's mom thinks that if Darwin got to play in the rain she'd get used to it. I started her off in her coat to ease her into it.
After a few minutes, she was wrestling with another pup and her new coat was filthy (great) so I took it off to see if she would handle being coat free in the rain.
After a while the rain stopped and Darwin was content running through mud puddles and rolling around. As we were leaving the rain started up again and so rather than leaving, we did another lap around the park and she got some play time in with a new friend.
She seemed to forget about the rain which was good. Of course this morning when it was time to go outside and it was windy and rainy, she paused for a bit before going out. Maybe a few more times playing in the rain will do the trick.
