Walking in the Rain

Finn has been having a pretty awesome 24 hour period.  Why, you ask?  Because, it's raining here.  Not just sprinkles either, torrential downpour.  And what retriever doesn't like water?  You ever notice that your walks take about 20% longer...when it's raining?  Oh yes, we love the rain.

This is what the sky looks like.

This is the let-me-out-to-play, I've-been-a-good-good-girl-so-far-today look.  (Also known as I-am-going-to-reek-havoc-and-jump-and-splash-and-pull-and-drag-you-on-our-walk-today look).

This is the puddle where we like to splash.

This is the motion we like to make in water - just a little tap, tap to make sure that when the water is splashed, we can catch it in our mouths.  We do this in every puddle, no matter how big or small.

This is the tree that fell down a couple of blocks over.  Luckily, it fell into the road.

This is the rolling around in the tree moment which caused us to smell like pine.

This is where we decided to lay down for a bit and soak in the water and smells.

Time to shake it all off.

This where we decided to look up at the sky and try to figure out where the rain was coming from... the middle of the road, no less.

And now this is what we're doing while Mommy's typing it all up.


  1. Finn
    you have lots of rainballs. woweee. Tell your momma to take you swimming!!! frogs are out! You know I'll be right over so you don't get bored. We'd have tons of fun.

    PS- excellent spin dry moves

  2. That's a lot of rain! yuki and rocket like to go out onto the covered porch to smell the rain but once they feel a raindrop they run right back in the house. I love the last pic with Finn's bum in the air and body on the wall,lol.

  3. Looks like a fun day, Miss Finn. Our boring Mommy won't take us out to play in the rain, some nonsense about getting muddy and no bathtub to wash us in.

  4. Oh Finn, I wish wish wish I was there with you. We could have so much fun frolicking in the rain and the puddles and the trees.

    I am so jeleous...


  5. That was a nice sleeping posture Finn! ^_^
    (I have lotsa pics with different sleeping positions. Check under label "dog snooze" if interested).

    My Mom avoids rain at ALL COSTS! Luckily I don't like to get wet either. When it been raining, it means no walkie for me.


  6. That looks like a super fun walk. We love rain too!

    the 2 brown dawgs

  7. That last picture made me giggle. We've been having rain too....but nothing like yours. We do appreciate the cooler weather, though. :)

  8. My boys are quite spoiled and HATE to get wet. It's like pulling teeth to get them to go out in the rain. I'm glad that you enjoy it, though, Finn!

    We got a few sprinkles of rain last night but nothing since. I wish we would get some more - we've had a lot of fires recently so it might help put them out and clear away the smoke in the air.

  9. OH... I just LOVE the subliminal message...
    PERFECT... maybe you can share that technique with the rest of the Activities group...
    Oh Finn... speaking of Sharing.. those two Roaching/Rollin in the Pine.. would be PERFECT fur Mona's Roachin 202 CLASS... You DO display ADVANCED SKILLS !!! BOL BOL..
    I have NEVER known a golden that didn't LOVE the water... tap tap tap... hehehe

  10. What a day! All that rain, send us some we sure could use it. I got your subliminal message and send along some pics.

    Enjoy your nap!

    woos, Tessa

  11. Hi Finn! So glad you had a fun time in the rain!
