Heh, agreed folks, we don't really get a lot of snow in Ireland, and when we do the country virtually shuts down. But the rain we've been having lately has been ridiculous. BUt I can't complain, Archer is thrilled by all the muck and water.
To me, rain with temps just above freezing is some of the worst weather to be out in. At least with snow you have a chance to brush it off yourself before it can soak into your clothes. We are having another dose of artic air and while its not fun, being wet and cold is worse. None of it seems to dampen my dogs spirits though, they are much tougher than us.
