How long does it take a pair of greyhounds to forget that is is raining and come bug you about taking a walk?

Much as I love rainy weather, I hate walking in the rain (this is probably why I don't get any dates). For the last two hours, Katie and Boss have come into the office every 11 minutes to remind me that the afternoon walk is over-due. I get up, walk out to the patio door and open it. They stare at the rain for a while, then go lie down. I shut the door and go back to the computer.

If this was just your ordinary Oregon drizzle, we'd head out, but it's real "200-yards and you're soaked" rain. We all got drenched this morning on the way back up the hill and I really don't want a repeat.

Two more minutes.

I have a Lab- he doesn't even notice when it's pouring, snowing, a blizzard, or windy. He doesn't like days over 85 degrees (once a year, if that), but otherwise he's oblivious to weather.

I also hate walking in the rain. Nothing romantic about it at all- you get cold and wet and it's miserable. My dog doesn't even notice it.

One of my dogs knows when it is raining, he will NOT go outside. I am pretty sure he has held his business all day to avoid the rain. Eventually I have to make him go out, he looks like I killed his mother or something.

1 of ours likes the rain, the other one is like berrifics, wouldnt go out in the rain or snow if her life depended on it. I have to throw her out, and even then she has peed & pooped on the deck & begged to be let back in.

My lab shepherd loves rain and all forms of water, until it's time for a bath. Then getting wet is like torture.
