Living with Sissies.

P1040706

It is raining today…with a small chance of thunder.

P1040702

Which equates to 100% chance of sissiness.

I love your sissies:) And I really miss mine:( Until last night I had been full of reasons why now is not the smart time for another puppy but today I'm thinking it might be time. Smart or not!

George said...

They're not sissies -- they just don't want to get wet! And they are kind enough to stay out of your way.

I'm pretty sure that I'm their aunt. Now that I think about it, we even look a little alike. If you need a break, send them over to Aunt Caution the Sissy. I'll take good care of them while we're hiding under the table.

Now, when my son and your daughter get married, feel free to name him Rhett. I'm too much of a sissy to object.

They are so cute! My niece's sheltie is scared to death of thunder too. One time she came in from work on a rainy afternoon, and he had opened the bathroom vanity cabinet, raked out all the shampoo etc., and was up in there trembling!!!!! Can you believe we have snow (a lot) today. It's supposed to snow all day!

My dog is a big sissy as well! He's terrified of thunder, and when someone comes up our driveway he hides behind me until he's sure it's safe;) I would be more understanding if he didn't weigh 95 pounds!!!

Jen said...

I hope some thunder was involved to make him go under the table.
Hubby is in Orlando--Big storm rolled thru there this morning, so he was glad his flight home was not until later today. Stay dry.

ChiTown Girl said...

I am fighting the urge to drop a bunch of f-bombs, since I know you don't like them, but DAY-UM, Girl!!! Your pool area belongs in a resort, not someone's backyard!! It's gorgeous!

Liz Mays said...

Those sissies just need a wittle bit of extra wuv!!!!

Tracey Axnick said...

Oh my goodness! What DRAMA!
Chloe (our dear departed Black Lab) used to go from room to room, licking her LIPS when it would thunder. It was the damndest thing. :)

Bea said...

Poor Cocoa! We have one that would be under there with her...

Technodoll said...

I am sooooo jealous of your pool!!! But, if a storm was coming, I think I'd hide too. :)

Baby Favorite said...

So cute, those sissies!

I was in Tampa last week and couldn't believe how damp/chilly it was! Florida is being very bipolar lately!

Unknown said...

Awe! They are so cute. JJ doesn't like to go out when it's raining or even when the grass is wet.

Unknown said...

Poor frightened puppies! Your dogs are so cute!
It did look like a bit of a downpour, Suz. No alligators in the road, I hope. XOXO

Rebecca Foster said...

Have I mentioned before how much I love your pool are? I probably have. I'll say it again: I love it! I'd never leave my house if I lived there.

Doggies are funny! And precious. I like to think that they take my sissiness so I can be strong.

People Who Know Me Would Say: said...

How funny! My dogs aren't so much sissies, BUT wet grass does offend their canine sensibilities.

Isn't your pool area gorgeous?! I know many people have their pools screened in in FL, but yours is lovely!

Anonymous said...

They are gorgeous! And is that your pool? Whoever it belongs to it's absolutely amazing!

Awwww! Marlee is the same way! The next time we have a storm I'll have to take pictures because her favorite place to hide is the closet! I love your boxers :) So cute! And you're right, Cocoa and Marlee do look a lot alike!

Jenny said...

Hey, don't call 'em sissies...they have big teeth ya know? Cool pool!

Becca's Dirt said...

Love those sissies. They are precious and such beautiful coats.

Lakeland Jo said...

I know this is supposed to be about the dogs, but I think it should be about the pool. I want that pool- fabulous

Vicki/Jake said...

They are so cute.
Poor babies.

Gary's third pottery blog said...

OH! The wonderful post above, of course you were the light of her life :) Seems to me you have her eyes, do you think that's true? Have a great day Suz...

The Running Girl said...

Big babies. That's all they are. Gotta love em.

Jenny said...

Hey you. Sending you a big hug on your day of memory and sad reflection. She was lovely. So are you. I see her in you. And she would be so proud of you as you continue to grow into the amazing person you have become!

Shelley said...

Awww, send those sissies over here and they can comfort Scout as she's hiding behind a chair to get away from the smelly cat!

P.S. Read your post above - I'm in tears. So sweet!!!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

That looks so inviting--to sit out there and read a book with the rain pounding down.

Suz Broughton said...

Oh, they hate the rain don't they!
