It's raining outside...and he won't come in...

Is your GSD like that, too? All the other dog breeds I have had wanted to be in where it is dry and warm when it's raining. Not this one...he just runs around or lays out in the yard...in the rain. He actually loves it, I believe. Is that a trait of GSD's? Never had a dog that LIKED the rain and being wet. Curious what you all think...

LOL! YES!! Chyanne will cry to go out when it is raining, I let her out and she runs her little heart out! And watch out for the water puddles, they are like raw meat to her! She has to hit every water puddle she can find, if there isnt any, she will make her own.

Re: It's raining outside...and he won't come in...

Mine love to go out and play in the rain. They also love to swim. Max will just lay in the yard if it is not pouring. My cat loves the rain too. He is leashed trained and I tie him out where he can get under the deck stairs, but he just lays in the rain.

Oh gosh, Molly. It can rain, it can pour and she'll splash till not a hair is left dry... and then some more! :P
Gus will for a wee bit and then comes in.
Sidney never cared for rain. Now snow...

Re: It's raining outside...and he won't come in...

Anna walks around like nothing is going on...it can thunder, lightning, wind, whatever. She's in her puppy la la land.

But I think she secretly gets soaked cause she loves getting dried off by the towel! She thinks it's a game, ending with her taking the towel and running around the table with it!

Re: It's raining outside...and he won't come in...

Shadow doesn't like to go out in the rain. Believe me this really isn't cool with an older senior who can't "hold it" like she used to.

Gia and Duchess could care less that it is raining. BUT they do not want to get left outside. If I open the door to come back in, they are on their way in too.

Jolene who is GSD and Sheltie we think doesn't mind the rain. Poncho this morning and out we go. OF course the cat follows us in the rain. Now he doesn't mind light rain, but does NOT like Toad Croakers......

Oh at WKDK I checked the NWS official guage ( we report Newberry for them) and as of 5 PM 1.7 inches, and it was pouring when I went out.

Oh and if there's mud in the yard with the rain, then it is even more fun out there!

Re: It's raining outside...and he won't come in...

My previous two dogs, a belgian sheepdog and a doberman, hated the rain. Thought they would melt. Max, my GSD isn't phased at all and seems to really like it.
