Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, Mani the purebred border collie, filling in for the guy I live with, and here to bring you something even more different from the different thing I brought you last time. Really super different. You may remember me from such posts as “How To Avoid Gardening”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a fairly uncharacteristic pose. I’m in my fort, which isn’t unusual, but I’m more or less soaking wet.I’m wet because it rained here. Not just a whole bunch of drops, but actual rain. The guy I live with couldn’t believe it. But it happened.
It rained so much that he went into the garage, rummaged around a bit, and came back into the kitchen with a couple of old, red ponchos which Flurry and Pooka, two border collies who lived here a long time ago, wore when they went on walks in the rain. As he tried to fit one on me, the guy I live with told me how Pooka would walk very stiff-legged and proud when he walked by other dogs, wearing his poncho in the rain.
The poncho was finally fitted on me, but I didn’t want to have my picture taken wearing it, and fortunately the guy I live with forgot to get a picture of me in the poncho. But it did keep me sort of dry. Walking in the rain turned out to be completely excellent. I still got dried with a towel when I got home.
A short film was made just to prove what happened today. You know, like evidence. We’re not sure why the shed looks so blue, but it does. It’s really more green.
Until next time, then.
