Hey! Greetings from rainy Montreal! yep, after a long and snowy winter, we had a few sunny days. I really enjoy the sun, and taking a nap by a window with the sun warming up my tummy is one of my favorite pasttimes.
However, for the past two or three weeks, we've had almost constant rain. I remember that, in Mexico, it would rain really hard all afternoon, but it would usually clear up by night, and mornings were almost always dry (well, no rain, but all that sun meant a lot of humidity in the environment, which I don't like so much).
Here in Montreal the rain is lighter, but it rains for a long time; dad says it's because some nasty clouds come and park over the city and it just rains and rains and rains forever.
Mathias an I have nice raincoats, but since it rains so much, sometimes they get wet and there's no time for them to dry before our next walk. So either way, we get all wet!
Still I'm very happy to take walks with mom & dad, even if it's raining, because we spent all of last week holed up in a kennel while they were away!
Yep, so mom & dad took a trip together, and for the first time ever, they left us doggies in a kennel. They say it's because the trip was too long.
They walked us there one day, and we had no idea what was going to happen; they left us with this man, who put us in a couple of cages. Now, we've been left alone before; when we moved to Canada we spent one night in a kennel in Toronto, and sometimes when mom & dad have to run errands, they leave us in a pet shop where they take care of us for the day.
However, this time I waited and waited for mom & dad to come back. The night came, and Mathias told me they probably wouldn't be back that day. So we went to sleep. Luckily we were in contiguous cages, so we could keep each other company.
Next day, nothing happened. The strange guys just took us for our three daily walks and brought us back to the cages. I was bored and wondering when mom & dad would come get us. Mathias was being his usual rascally self, but I could tell he was also beginning to miss mom & dad.
I was behaving OK, and I could eat a little, but I was sad because I didn't know when mom & dad would return. Mathias was keeping me company and reassuring me, so that part wasn't so bad; I wasn't completely alone!
Then, after 7 days, the kennel guy opened the door, and I was wondering what he was up to! then I saw mom, and Mathias and I went towards her and told her "hey, get us out of here!". We were so desperate to get out that we didn't even notice dad who was also there to pick us up!
We got into this guy's van to take us home, it was small and cramped but I really didn't care because I was with mom & dad!
Eventually we got home, and after a short walk, I just went to my bed and slept for hours! now that I was home, and safe with mom & dad, I could finally relax, sleep and eat! and I was starving!
So now, all is well and we are back home, and even though it keeps raining, I'm all warm inside because I'm together again with my family :)
Only bad thing is that I banged my tail while in the cage, so the tip is now all swollen and red. I had my tail tip shaved and am getting treatment so it heals without getting infected. But I know that will heal :)
Be seeing you!

We're a lot a like. I don't like kennels at all. The last time I was in one several years ago I didn't eat much either and I really missed my Mom and Dad.
I also love to sunbath in the window. Like you, we've been getting a lot of rain. I hope the sun comes out this long weekend.
I'm sending some POTP for your tail.
Here's to hoping for sun!!
