Hey all! So the months of April and May are usually quite rainy; so are the autumn months, September and October. Since us doggies need to go out rain or shine (or snow!), it's always a challenge for the humans to find ways to keep us comfortable and dry on those rainy walks.
I used to not mind the rain, when I was younger I liked going out on the rain and running in puddles. I don't think my humans liked it very much! But now I'm older and I'm not so fond of the rain anymore. I get all wet and cold and I just want to go back home.
Due to my size, it's usually hard to find good rainwear for me. I've been made to wear a human jacket, but since it has the arms at the sides (not both pointing down, who designed these crazy humans?) it wasn't a good fit. I've also been known to wear (oh the shame) a giant plastic trash bag, which my humans affectionately call my "derelicte". I don't like it because it's very noisy and gets in my way while walking.
Luckily for me, my humans decided to splurge and bought spiffy new rain slickers from Chilly Dogs for Mathias and myself.
After a gruesome measurement-taking session, these were ordered online and promptly arrived via mail. I got an orange one that looks great! They have good coverage of our backs, sides and belly, though our paws, legs and heads still get a bit wet. Still, mom & dad say it's easier to dry 25% of a dog than an entire, wet dog! and we're much happier since we don't get so wet and cold.
And of course, as a girl, I always like getting and showing off my new clothes :)

Sounds like cool rain gear--your mom should post a photo!! :)
That jacket looks cool.
Caileigh and I have similar jackets that we use in the winter.
Like you, we don't care for the rain. Caileigh won't even step through the door is it's raining.
