White Dog was cheated by Fate today...and she was not happy about it at all. This morning, Park Day, we were awakened half an hour before the alarm by the growl of thunder and flashes against the drawn blinds. Steve hopped out of bed and announced that they would hurry and go then (even though it was still dark) so as to beat the incoming storm. White Dog was ready in an instant and Steve only 3 minutes behind, but as they climbed into the car, the rain poured down. The Park trip was cancelled. White Dog stared out her window in disbelief. Tonight in time for the bedtime walk it happened again! This time, they decided to brave the rain thinking (like most storms in New Mexico) that it would end in just a few minutes. They returned after 5 minutes, both thoroughly drenched and unhappy...and still it rained. White Dog laid down looking out of her dog door and sighed.
