Yet Another Soggy Day


July 18, 2012 by Shannon

“Sky is cloudy, Mama.  Some of dem is dark.”
I thought I would try to get a few shots of Rama outside and it began to thunder.  Rama looked up toward the sky, taking notice of a few birds that had taken flight from the palm tree in our front yard.  It then began to thunder.
“What’s dat sound?”
I decided we’d better head back inside.  When I stood up, Rama did her you-can’t-catch-meeeee zoomies around the front yard, stopping in the one spot she knows will elicit an irritated response from me most days–The Dirt Pile.  More accurately, The Sand Pit.  This is her favorite spot.  Ever.  Notice her looking at me as she stands in it.
“Oh Mamaaaa, lookit meeeeeeee!”
The key to not having her turn into a whirling dervish here is to turn my back and ignore her.  I start to head back toward the door.  She decides tracking a lizard might be a better activity than trying to annoy The Mama.
She eventually saunters back toward the house.
This is the best thing to do on rainy days.

  1. Oh my goodness – she does look a little mischievous standing in that sand pile! You know her well to not react! BOL!

    After the first couple times she decided to go face-first into the sand and I had to bathe her at around 5:30 am, yeah, I got her number. 😉

  3. Looks like we are having a weather swap. We may now be getting sun and you are getting rain. Hope you don't get too much rain but plenty of cool weather.
    Best wishes Molly

    lol that is so funny about the sand pile. ozzy likes to get in the trash and pull out napkins…anything papery and will come and show me what he has in his mouth and then take off running for me to catch him….i too have to pretend like i don't care then i can catch him off guard and steal it from him. dogs are so funny!

    Rama's Mama….
    The “zoomies”, you call that behavior? My Rose does the same exact thing!! Her always colossal brown eyes will suddenly become bigger, playful and mischievous. Then, like some racing Greyhound, she runs from me…. In swift, graceful-moving circles!!
    Love, Raelyn…. And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE “Mystery Dog”!!

    LOL we got our walk in early this morning, it was so darn hot out. The rain came but it's not expected to cool off until Friday. 😦

  7. Well we finally got rain today, to be accurate we got three and a half inches in under an hour. Then it continue to rumble so I had to stay inside.

  10. Rama's Mama says:

    Oh cool weather would be nice! But we won't be seeing any of that for months probably. 😦 Poo. Fall is our favorite time of year here.

  11. Rama's Mama says:

    Rama likes paper, too. I found a pizza coupon in her crate the other day, LOL.

  12. Rama's Mama says:

    Yep, zoomies!!! Silly, isn't it?

  13. Rama's Mama says:

    So glad you got your walk! Hopefully it won't be raining tonight so we can go.

  14. Rama's Mama says:

    Well boo. I hope you have a great day today and get to go out and enjoy the sun!

  15. Rama's Mama says:

    Nope. She gave up quick when she saw I was headed inside. 😉

    This weather you are experiencing must be trying your patience…hang in there and I'll do my Doodle Sunshine Dance!

  17. Rama's Mama says:

    I know, right? 😉

  18. Rama's Mama says:

    Oh that would be great!
