Does your Pyr like rain?
« on: September 13, 2008, 05:25:28 am »
Courtesy of Ike, it's raining here in North Texas - not pouring down thank goodness - and Ursa is loving it!  I've had plenty of dogs in my life but she's the first one that would willingly leave the covered porch in the rain.  She's out back right now just playing in the yard and happy as a lark.

Does anyone else have a water dog disguised as a Pyrenees?

both my pyr pups would stay outside in the rain (and snow) forever if I let them.  they roll in the dirt pile and have a ball.

Definitely not here! Jenny hates, detests, and despises rain--but it probably stems from her severe anxiety to storms. If rain is falling Jenny does not want to go out and will not go potty in the rain either--she has not gone potty since yesterday around 7pm.  ::)

Snow is another story--snow she LOVES.

Lily LOVES it!!! If I don't realize that it's raining and Lily is outside I find her sleeping in the rain ::)

When Miles was a little puppy, he hated it. He was not going out in that stuff for nothin'! He doesn't mind it now though. He doesn't play in it either, he's just like, eh...just rain. Miles also LOVES snow. He goes crazy over it.

My Pyr cody has always loved rain, we live in Florida and the worse the storm the more he likes it. He likes to stand outside and bark at the storms and the neighbors and the birds and the trees and the.......
