Delay Of Game

Greetings to all - it's me, Maggie!  Yesterday morning, instead of going on a walk before breakfast, we decided to eat first - then walk.  Sounded good to me - we do that sometimes when all four of us can go together!  Yea!

So ... we ate, then Mom looked out back, squealed a bit, grabbed the camera and the iPhone, and ran out onto the deck.  That's pretty normal around here at sunset time or if we have a storm rolling through.  But this time ... well, here's what we had:

Yep. A whole rainbow! It was trying to make a double rainbow; you can see that if you look closely. Anyway - Mom shot that using the panorama thingie on the iPhone!

After that, Mom and Dad had a short discussion about how strange it was to see a rainbow, since it hadn't rained, then got our harnesses out so we could get our walk in. As Dad opened the garage door ...

"Hang on there, Dad."

"I think I know where that missing rain is."

I guess it was raining out front - but not out back.  And since the sun rises out front, that rain out there was enough to refract the light to make the rainbow.  Or maybe there was more rain out over the hills.  I'm a puppy - I don't really know.  Anyway ...

There was no lightning, so we waited a few minutes for the heavier rain to pass, then headed out.

"Delay of game is OVER!"
"Let's go, go, GO!!!"

One side benefit of the rain (beyond helping out with the whole drought thing) is that Mom doesn't want to get the new camera wet, so there was no standing around while she took photos!

I hope you all have enjoyed the long weekend!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  7. What a beautiful rainbow!!! All we got was lots of wind, rain, and thunder and lightning all night long. But at least today was cooler:)

    Happy Labor Day.

  13. We had a full rainbow a few days ago but Mom didn't want to go out in the rain to the only place in the yard where she could photograph the full rainbow with her camera, so she only got a photo of what she saw from the dry safety of our deck. Something about not wanting to get her camera wet. Whatever....!

  14. How super cool was that rainbow! And we agree it is so nice to have a walk after the rainstorm, much cooler and less steamy!

  15. Oh, I loves walking in the rain! But HEY, you don't have to wear a raincoat?! Momma told me that all doggies have to wear raincoats. I'm suddenly suspicious.
