The dog is nuts. It has been raining off and on for two days and he acts afraid of the rain...most of the time. For instance, today he had to be coaxed out of the house in a bare mist , he chased the ball once and ran back to the porch. He could not be persuaded to leave the porch and he whined and scratched at the door. He finally peed after an amazing 12 hours of waiting. Any drop of rain coming towards him, any wet leaf on the ground or grass was enough to send him cringing back to shelter. That was except for at 11:30 last night and again tonight when he wanted to walk and walk. Tonight it was pouring and still he wanted to walk around the neighbourhood sniffing and peeing (especially the boxwoods - there is something about boxwoods). So what is the catalyst for his change? I want to invoke it earlier tomorrow.
