    Do you feel guilty if....

    your dogs get soaking wet outside?

    For instance, last night, when it was time to come in, they didn't want to. I tried a few times, and finally just left them out. It was pouring rain last night, but they have a big Igloo dog house with a door. Well, when I woke up to check on them, Dusty was shivering soaking wet by the door.

    Dusty always lets me know (by yapping) if he wants something. He never yapped to come inside. He also had the option of going into the house. But I still feel guilty! Why did he make himself suffer?

    Thank you Wolfie!

    Hah! Daisy's the exact same way. It was raining here last week, and I let them both outside to go potty for a few minutes.. and I came back and saw Daisy SOAKING wet sitting in the patio, crying to come in. Molly's perfectly *dry*, as usual lol. I just towel dry her, and then bring her in.

    Here's a few pics.. hope you don't mind if I share.

    You could see she was a little muddy on her tummy area, too..

    It's raining here lightly now, and it's supposed to pour harder tonight and tomorrow as well..

    Na! I would not feel guilty.
    I let my dogs out to go potty when it is raining.
    (plus I have a patio cover)
    Once it is bed time they come in the house whether they
    want to or not.

    I always feel guilty even if they get a few drops on them. Well, I don't feel so guilty when it comes to Bitsy, she likes the rain. But when it comes to my 3 short hair kids, I always feel horrible when they get wet.
