Muddy Paws

My dogs while not perfect are normally fairly well behaved.  They have good listening skills (for the most part) and a wide enough range of basic commands to be practical.  There is something I've discovered... Something that seems to turn my nice little girls into sneaky demon dogs...  That thing, is rain.  

When it rains my nice little Reba becomes a jumping fool.  Thursday I came home in the midst of a rain storm.  Reba always runs and greets my truck, then while it idles down I open my door and pet her, before shutting the truck off and heading into the house.  While Reba waits for me she sits at the driver's side door or runs around the parked truck in circles.  

When it rains Reba has taken to jumping (paws and all) on to the side of the door.  (This I might add did not impress me much!)  Hollering at her to get down she cocked her head and did it again.  Next, I got out only to have her leap at me in joy not once but twice (both complete with a scolding).  She never jumps on me but there I was with a big muddy print on my thigh and another two on my rear end.  Of course I was wearing Khaki's...

She was so happy with herself to have me home it was hard to keep my mad on.  Next time it rains I'll be watching for her...
