Samson has to go out and exercise or he will drive me nuts in the evenings. So there is no way to avoid a wet dog even on days it does not rain. It is just that wet around here. This is what he looked like after a run through Cornwall Park the other day.
Speaking of a tough outter coat I have learned that WOOL is the way to go around here. It keeps you warm and DRY! Luckily I have a couple of wool sweaters already but I need more. Wool socks, shirts, pants, etc. I need it all. Well, since I did not get called in to help out at the school today I might head to the mall and see what I can find. I'll put on my Goretex jacket and head out with $1.50 in hand to ride the bus. It beats having to drive 30 - 40 miles to the nearest mall. It is only 2 miles down the road. I would ride my bike but I don't want to have lug all the stuff around the mall with me. :)
