Rainy Day

It is a very rainy day outside, again. Isn’t this supposed to be sunny Arizona?

Next weekend I am riding in the Lost Dutchman Day’s Parade with my sister. This weekend I had planned on getting my Friesian mare, Isabel, prepared for it. Other than a short ride on Friday, I haven’t been able to! Hopefully, I will be able to clean her up before next Saturday!

Sam came with me this morning to survey the mud and rain at my Mom’s house and help feed the horses. Of course, as always, he rode shotgun.

Hey you! Look at me! Yes, you, buddy!

Sam did quite a bit exploring at my Mom's house. He didn't mind getting rained on.

What's that you see there, Sam? Oh, the cats. It looks like they may need an umbrella!

Sam decided that he had better keep an eye on them! You never know what cats will do!

Don't get too close to them, Mom!

Sam was thoroughly soaked by the time we finished feeding horses.

I think I might need a towel, Mom!

Since it is a bit chilly outside (61 degrees!), Sam has decided that the best thing to do when we got home was to cuddle up and work on crossword puzzles.

Does anyone know a three-letter word meaning "disencumber"?

Sam also wants to catch up on his reading!

Excuse me, Mom? Have you seen the new "Chet the Dog" book?

We would also like to thank Olive for this pawsome award! Thank you, Olive!

In order to accept this award we have to list ten things that make us (Sam) happy!

Let's see...

1) Riding shotgun in the car
2) Yam treats
3) Scratches in that funny spot behind his ears that he can't reach
4) Treats
5) Taking walks
6) Chewies
7) Going to Petsmart
8) Munching on dog bones
9) Sleeping next to Dad
10) Sitting in Mom's lap

I would like to give this award to the following blogs - although I wish I could give it to everyone!

2)Snowie Baby
5)Sir Chance

…and for a little fun, Mom found this cute Golden video on YouTube!
