It has been raining for almost two weeks straight. This is stereotypical Seattle weather.... but it shouldn't be like this! It's May not October!
Darwin hasn't had many outings because she HATES the rain (besides her gimpy butt keeps her activity levels restricted). We have a coat for her which helps, but at the same time, you put it on her and suddenly her butt droops. It's like her kryptonite. I'll have to try and get video of it at some point cause it really is funny.
Anyway, there was one day last week where the weather was decent after work so we went for a walk and stopped in a park where this little boy ran over to say hi to her. I love when kids aren't afraid of her and want to say hi. Most kids (or their parents) are terrified of her because of her size. (BTW, I got a blatant "where's her saddle" comment last night while walking her... doesn't happen often, but when it does it so bugs me.) So after he gave her a few pets and compared her to his dog (a black lab) we kept walking. I got her to sit under a pretty tree for some pictures (taken with my phone).
As I moved to get a different angle Darwin decided she was done posing.
On another note. Any advice on how to get Darwin to stop barking at other dogs when we're out walking? She used to NEVER bark at other dogs, even if they were barking at her, she'd usually ignore other dogs. But ever since her mystery injury and drug treatment she's a nut. There's a big old greyhound that walks around the same time we do after work and on the same roads. Darwin could care less about her before, but now she barks at this dog all the time. It's so embarrassing and frustrating. People are going to start thinking she's a mean, aggressive dog which she isn't... or she wasn't... she's just hurt and drugged. Ugh. I miss my carefree, hyper puppy!
