Have you noticed your dog's attitude becoming more "grown-up" over time? I sure have! When I first brought Willie home, he absolutely hated going out on a rainy day. After he discovered the joy of hunting out in his yard, that changed completely! We are having a rainy day here in southeastern lower Michigan, and so far this morning I've had to dry Willie off about four times. He goes out to hunt, rain or shine! He thinks it is his job, I believe, to keep the yard safe from those pesky birds, squirrels, and chipmunks. Of course, he comes inside every now and then, totally soaked (but happy).
