Is this what they mean by partly cloudy??

I wasn't planning on posting over the weekend, but ran across something I thought was too cool not to share. 

The boys & I were sitting inside when we heard it begin to pour down rain.  Figures, it was just time for them to go out for a potty break.  Mason won't go out in the rain unless you physically shove him out the door.  So much for this Labrador being a water dog...

Thankfully, the rain let up after just a few minutes, so out we went.  The deck was all wet, but only part of the patio was.  How weird is that??  I guess the rain cloud parked right over our house briefly, let out what it had, then moved on - it never rained in the back yard!!  I had my camera sitting nearby, so I shot a few photos to share this odd weather with our bloggie friends.  

BTW- that's Duncan making a guest appearance on the blog, so they photos qualify for showing on DWB!  Brutus didn't want to get his pampered tootsies wet, so the old man went out as his stand-in :)

This is how our back yard looked - part rained-on, part dry!!

You can clearly see where the shower ended (really, this isn't from the sprinklers coming on!)

It is funny the way it rained there!

I hope you all are having a great weekend!
Kisses and hugs

Very weird shower you had. We noticed how green and lush your lawn is. Our's is starting to get some brown spots from lack of rain. Mom hasn't started watering yet.

Wags & wiggles,

Good boy Mason, don't go out in the rain. It's yuky. I can hold it very long when it's raining.

wow - this happens all the time at our house - because we are right on the water (we have docks in our yard) so it rains over the water but the clouds dont make land.

Rain has to start and stop SOMEWHERE!

Happy Rest of YOUR Weekend!

How weird! Summer weather can really bring some strange things.

It's okay, by the way - my Marge, a supposed Lab mix, also despises rain and still isn't much for swimming either, though she's opening up more to it because i keep coaxing her lol

How bizarre is that - at least there is one dry bit - Bailey hates the wet too.
Have a good weekend.

That is really spooky about the isolated rain. I guess the shower line has to be someplace.


Mack said...

What weird weather!

And I refuse to get my tootsies wet too!

Java doesn't know he is a waterdog either - dragging him off of the porch is a common occurrence during a rain storm.

I guess it was partly rainy instead of partly cloudy!

Molly the Airedale said...

How weird for it to rain on only half your yard!
We both hate going out to pee and poo in the rain too! We make mom hold an umbrella over our heads so we don't get wet!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
