The Joys of Rain...

It's been raining for 3 days straight! Highly unusual for Puerto Rico. We generally get tropical showers that are really quick. During a break in the rain yesterday I decided to take advantage and head over to El Morro for a quick run with the dogs. There's a huge green expanse of lawn which is great for some off leash fun. Since there were no cruise ships in port and the weather was abominable, we had the place to ourselves. Seems no one knows what to do here when the weather is not the usual bright, sunny day! The girls started off with a game of catch me if you can...

...in which Lilly is constantly dodging because Roxy is by far much faster. I think she just lets Lilly run around until she decides it the right moment to POUNCE!

Everyone needs a good roll in the lovely rain soaked grass...

...except that Lilly always manages to find the most putrid pile of disgusting grossness to roll in. If you think it looks bad, you should SMELL it. Eeeewwwww!
and it was ALL over her.

At this point we figured we might as well carry on since we probably were just going to get dirtier and most likely wet as well. The stench was overwhelming but whatever...The next few shots are just various parts of the grounds of the fort.

We checked out the old stables...

and posed for pics...

and had time for one last roll in the grass.

Not bad for a rainy day! Now if we could just get a break in the rain today...


  1. Great Pics..loved seeing El Morro, I felt like a tourist...lol

    Danes always look so carefree when running. Once our Pup is bigger Chelsea will finally have someone to run with...

  2. Wow, that's a lot of rain! I'm glad you took advantage of your playtime. Isn't getting dirty fun!

    The pictures are amazing, even for a cloudy day.

  3. love your danes, they are such clowns, no?

    Woo-woo!! That looked like a great day. You pups look as though you always have a lot of fun. That's just pawsome. Oh, Mom says to send some of that rain our way. Here in Arizona the temps are still hitting 100 degrees.

    Just roaming around and thought we'd stop by to say woof. Hope you pups are doing well.

  8. Looks like so much fun!! I always try to get the dogs out in the rain and play just so they don't have any fears of "adverse" weather. Willow and Kai both love the rain....can't wait to see what Willow does in the snow!
