Just had a moment with Arlo I thought everyone here would be able to appreciate. The crazy winds hittig the coast are getting us here in Eugene, strong winds, lots of loud rain... I let Arlo out into the dog run cause he rang the bell (neat thing we taught him) and after about five minutes I went to see if he wanted to come in. Opened the door, he's laying there on the porch just.. taking it in i guess. I left the light on for him, and tou can see the wind because of the rain it carries. I sat next to him (after slowly shutting the door and running to grab my phone for a picture) and just took it in, stroking his damp fur and listening and watching. It was a good peaceful moment in a long, stressful week of me being sick.

Hope your feeling better!

 

Oh, and have heard about the high winds and 3 storms hitting the northern Pacific coast this week through Monday.

Made me think of the hurricanes that just blew past here.

 

I like that Arlo sits out watching the weather.  B)

I wonder who he was listening to ... the leaves, the wind itself, then rain drops?

 

Glad you got to have those moments with him.

I hope the porch had a roof so you didn't get soaked!!!!!

The weather is crazy here but we managed to get in a little ball playing and some zoomies this morning between showers. Very refreshing ⛈...

Set him upright.  Geez, that lovely silver color really adds to the stormy feel. 

 

What a beauty.
