Freckles looks forward to garbage day. On garbage day, I gather the garbage from all over the house, throw it in the back of the Suburban, open the front door and let Freckie in and then drive down to the road (our driveway is long). While I'm unloading the trash into the trash container, she gets to run around, smell things and pee on them. Oh, the pure unadulterated doggy joy! Today, however, it is raining. She hates rain. This didn't affect her enthusiasm when I was loading up, but when we arrived at out destination (the end of the driveway) and it was raining there too (!!!) she was upset. She didn't want to even get out of the truck. I means, what's the point?! I made her get out and she made a half-hearted attempt to sniff and even peed once, but then she was oh so ready to get back IN! Oh well, there's always next Thursday.
