|Taken in the “misting” stage before it started pouring|
Portland is notorious for rain but we’ve been having even more of a wet deluge than normal. Normally, it mists. But we’ve been getting full-out rain and it’s quite miserable for the pup. We walk every day pretty much despite the weather and Mr. N comes home a soggy mess despite wearing a rain coat. He has hair not fur so no insulation at all.
We met up with Sage this past week to let the dogs run and Mr. N was positively soaked from head to tail. Even he decided he needed a bath and he followed me into the kitchen (where I bathe him in the sink) which he never does.
It has been adding extra time to walk time because I have to get him dressed, undress him, wash his paws/legs/tail/belly, dry him, heat up something warm for him to eat, throw the coat in the washer and rinse off his leash and my shoes.
We’re traveling this weekend so I hope the rain doesn’t follow us. Do you have any tips to deal with walking in the rain?
