8 Minutes.

That's all the time we got outside the other day before it started raining again. That was two days ago. Woe is us, we're trapped in the house like prisoners. Here I am wailing my unhappiness at the Rain Gods. Why us? We're just innocent doggies wanting to be outside in the sunshine. I think I'm turning see-through from lack of UV rays. There's not much to do inside...sleep and eat, sleep and eat. Oh, and since I refused to go outside in the monsoon yesterday it was sleep, eat and poop, sleep, eat and poop. (yep - twice)

Between this crappy Pancreas food, only a few treats a day, the diet and now this I tell ya I'm ready to crack. You might see me on Cops or America's Most Wanted soon. If I don't get out of this house it's just not going to be pretty.

Peanut said...

I'd say come visit us but really it is to muggy here to go outside for long.

coco said...

Hi, Sam.
I totally understand you. I suffered the same some days ago. Now I have sunny days here. I will be happy if you come to visit me. I will share my sun with you!
Have a nice day

Maggie said...

I think you need a marrow bone to keep you occupied! Just a thought!

Love ya lots,

wally said...

Wow--we have the opposite. It is so HOT and SUNNY and HUMID that we have to stay inside and sleep and eat (not all that different from my regular routine.) Maybe we should trade for a few days? (Or rain for sun--maybe not the heat).


ps. Sam, you look totally hot when you're indignant. hee!

Aunt Jan said...

Ask your mom to take you outside with her umbrella. She could just follow you around and keep the rain off of you! Just think how much fun you would have making your mom slush around in the rain and muddy grass! It could be sweet!!! I'm thinking it could be a chance of a life time for you!!!

Luckie Girl said...

Oh Sam, I totally understand how you feel. I don't even get to go outdoors on a daily basis. It's probably only on weekends for me. The weather has been crazy too..hang in there. It'll get better.

Gus said...

We are packaging lots of Azrizona sunshine and sending it your way. Let us know when it arrives

Cathy said...

Toby said...

Hi Samantha,

I'm sorry that you're just as bored as I am. We should start putting our paws together and think of something semi-fun to do. Either that or go wacko from boredom. Got any ideas??


Huskee Boy said...

Hi Sam.
Hmmmm... I like the thought of seeing you on TV though.. Cops is one of my all-time fav!

Sasha said...

Hi, I'm new here.
It's as bad here. It was 95 degrees yesterday. What husky wants to be out in THAT? Obviously you better get some good treats.

Suki said...

Hey Sam, send some of your rain over here! Everything is starting to turn brown, AGAIN!

Are you guys eating Avoderm? That's what I eat. I get Avoderm Puppy Kibble, but I'm not too crazy about their canned food, so I get that Spot's Stew stuff mixed in. The kibble is yummy, though, and it's not too expensive.

Puggy kisses!

Cosmos says - Hiya! Glad to meet Thrawn & all of you. Mommy rushed me outside as soon as she got home from work. It was making noises outside & just drizzling then. I HATE RAIN, but, golly did I have to go! That got me through a few hours until the rain stopped. Check back with you soon. P.S. Mommy added you to our friends list. Always nice to have new friends!

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh poor about thinking about Wally...that will make the time go by faster, right?

Hang in there! Lots of Licks, Ruby

Sophie Brador said...

That sucks Sam, but look at how dainty your little feet are!

Butters said...

Hey there pups! Thanks fortoppin and saying Hi to me!


Tigerkiller said...

Hi hi...Thanks for dropping by Bear goodness That's a whole pack you have there.

Bear's so envious he's asking me whens his brother or sister coming.

Anyway, It looks like there is a sort of Breedist thing going on. I'll be posting follow up on it.

I love your blog, and I'll be putting it up on my buddy list!

Holly said...

The only good thing about rain is the mud that we get to play in when it is done. Other than that, forget it!


Texas's Mum said...

Hey Sam,

inside to. I hope the rain stops and you and the rest of the pack get lots of outside time soon.

wally said...


I've been watching all the news about Texas and I'm worried about low-lying dogs! Please stay dry (and please tell Tucker to keep the SECRET dry when it gets there!)


MaPaw said...

I feel your pain. When it is not raining, it is so hot and sticky I cannot breathe.

The Daily Echo said...

Oh woo is me! We might have to jump in the A04's tank and come dognap you!

I can't believe it's still raining in July!
