Dear fellow comrades,

This is a call to action. It's been raining forever. I can't remember when I last saw sunshine. The thing about rain is, I don't like it. I don't like my little paws to be wet. Or my head. Or any part of me. And those things they call puddles, that seem like bottomless pools of danger? Yeah, I reserve the right to be carried across those. In fact, on any given rainy day in Kentucky, expect to see Mom walking Lincoln, carrying an umbrella with one hand and with the other hand, holding the princess (a.k.a me). People do stop and stare, asking if I'm a "diva." Isn't it obvious?

Mom spouts off some nonsense about how rain or shine, the pugs must be walked. Maybe Lincoln needs to be walked in freezing rain, he enjoys going potty outside. But for me, I would prefer to do my business inside, where it's warm and not raining. Who cares if this gets me yelled at, I don't see Mom going outside to potty. Can she really ask something of me that she refuses to do?! I think not.

Hopefully, I have some followers.

  1. Hi Minnie Moo
    It is raining again here in CA too! I don't love or hate rain. I run outside really fast and do my bidness then run really fast back in. Sometimes I go SO fast I need to go back outside in like 10 mins.
    Love Noodles

  2. It looks like the rain is finally gone from here. We will send a bit of sun to you.

  3. I stand firmly alongside you, Minnie Moo! I. Don't. Do. Rain.

  5. Minnie Moo,

  6. Minnie, I like to pee inside rain or shine. I am firmly on your side.

    Pee S. My mom is the diva in my house and I don't get walked when it's raining or cold. But I'm okay with that b/c I don't care for freezing my buns off OR for bottomless pools of danger either.

    Later friend!

  7. It's raining here in VA, too! Mack really hates going outside to go potty. I run out, do what I have to do and then run back in. When hu-mom and hu-grandmother came back from being gone a few hours, someone, and we won't name any names, left a surprise puddle in the house....

    Hu-mom said it was a girl that left the puddle since Mack has to pee on some object being a boy doggie who lifts his leg...just sayin....

    I see sun in our future, hang in there Minnie!

    Drools and licks,
    (the other) Minnie and Mack

  8. This is a concern as some don't like their feet getting cold and wet. But you really do need to try and be brave and potty outside. I bet if you do there will be a cookie for you.


  9. I understand uou 100 percent,about the rain.
    And your right,,, our moms don't go outside to go potty.. so why should we? It is not fair I say, and it is time for the rain to stop.

  10. it is also doing a lot of raining in jersey. i dont mind so much but jack wont get off the porch. mommy forces him to go down and go to the bathroom. if you dont like getting your paws wet, then of course your mommy should carry you over the puddles.

    ps that picture is adorable

  11. Hi Minnie,
    I don't like the rain either. I live in Oregon, where it rains, ALOT! I don't have a yard and am very picky about where I go to do business. I have to walk my neighborhood near many bottomless pools of danger and they're very scary. Sometimes when it pours, I am afraid to cross the raging waters along sidewalks and can't cross the street until I find a low spot... I think it's time for spring! I'm boycotting rain! No more stinky Puppia harnesses and soggy Pugs! I've heard San Diego's always sunny and the perfect pug temperature year round... We should form a pug colony there!

  12. Well I hate to say it but I don't care what the weather is like...I love to be outside and it could be raining like a maniac and I would sit out there like it's the coolest day in the fall. AND if I did my business inside I'd be in a world of trouble so I just pick my battles and throw up on the rug instead. HA!! Maybe you need one of those grassy pan thingys!

  13. Oooooh! I'm with you Miss Minnie :o)
    Not a big fan of rain myself...
    That is a very good question you have there about US having to go potty outside, rain or shine...
    Anyone has the answer to that??? Share please!
    BTW You are soooo cuuuuuuute under the umbrella :o)
