No snow yet!

Just rain. Most of ND, SD and some of MN have snow but not us! I'm a little disappointed that there isn't a flurry of white stuff out my window but then I think "it's only November". There is plenty of time for snow! Still there is something nice about being snowed in.

Because it has been constant rain, Teddy has been inside for the majority of the time...only going out when necessary. It's amazing how little rain it takes to make a dog stink! We have this puppy cologne that smells like powder that we spray on him in between groomings. He absolutely HATES it! As soon as you go to the door that contains the spray, he takes off. He shows his teeth, sneezes and ruts like a bull. It is by far the funniest thing I've ever seen him do! We don't use the spray very often in the spring, summer or fall but definitely the winter! Once sprayed, he desperately wants to go outside to rub it off. He rolls around in the grass or snow trying to rub it off. Again, very funny! Due to my very sensitive pregnant nose, I can detect stinky dog from a mile away. I pulled out the spray this morning and had to bribe him with a treat and still chase him down. Right now he's running around the house trying to rub it off on anything he can. Do dogs not like to smell powder fresh?

That is so funny, I can totally imagine this.

I never could understand how a dog could smell worse after a bath than before. I wish somebody could explain the science behind this for me!
