Rain rain go away....

I've never been so in tuned to the weather before Timmy got here, but man I really hate the rain now. My day's events;
1-Timmy scratches on door
2- Timmy goes out to pee
3- Timmy comes in all wet
4- Timmy get my floor all wet
5- Dry Timmy while he wrestles with the towel
6- Unhook leash while Timmy is a crazy man since being towel dried
7- Dry floor while Timmy tries to steal towel
REPEAT 100 MORE TIMES
** And if I decide to go out with him I need to dry off my feet, hide my shoes since I can't wear them since they are all wet. I admit I've been letting him out with the retractable leash and staying inside

Okay I feel better now.

Haha, the rain doesn't bother me except when my hair looks good! Luckily, Lizzie is 2 and only goes out about every 4 hours now. It will get better. I keep a golf umbrella by the front door.

When I first got Maddie I lived in an apartment that had a patio. I bought a cheep plastic fence. Then had a brilliant Idea of putting saud down Well it lasted for about a month and was a pain to roll up and haul away. Then I got fake grass indoor out door carpet and that has worked great. I replace it about ever 3mo and just hose it off. Well living in Oregon we get are sare of rain. Maddie didn't like going out in the rain. So I added a camping rain and shade tent. It worked great in tell the wind blew it and rain would collect on one side. I cant count the times I would go out with a pole and drain the corners and get socking wet But it got us threw our first winter. I dont have a picture of the tent but I do have one of the grass on the patio.

He is pad trained but prefers to go outside. He did go pee once inside today though.

I went out with the umbrella today and Timmy was afraid of it, oh well rain coat it is. He isn't going out as much as he did thank goodness, scheduled meal times = scheduled potty breaks.
