A number of years ago--too many really--The Carpenters sang a song called "Rainy Days and Mondays," in which Karen sang "rainy days and Mondays always get me down." Well, we finally had a rainy day here in arid Central Illinois and it didn't get me down at all. We didn't get nearly as much as we need but, at this point, anything is welcome. It was something new for the boys. We haven't had any "real" rain since they have been here. Since it rained most of the day, it was necessary to go potty in the rain. When they got used to it, they decided it wasn't so bad.

I have learned, much to my regret, that I need to carry a camera with me at all times. I have missed some golden opportunities. You can't tell two Corgi puppies to wait until you get the camera! It's amazing, though, how photogenic Corgis can be. They can be real hams when the camera comes out and they realize that they are the center of attention.

The problem with outdoor pictures, even when you have a camera, is that they move so quickly, and stay still so seldom, getting a good picture isn't easy.

No matter how active they get, or how wet the rain makes them, I can always be certain of one thing: a few minutes in the house, and I know just where I can find them. It doesn't matter if it's a rainy day, a Monday, or a Thursday!

Yay! We got rain here in Missouri and it was much needed too! And yes, I finally decided that video is the best way to get pictures. Otherwise, they end up being a blur or a fleeting body part!

The rain was welcomed here also! Love seeing the pictures! You did a great job on Wink's memorial too...it was beautiful.

So cute! I know what you mean I have lots of pictures of the back end of my dogs because I didn't snap the picture fast enough,happens with my grandkids too. I guess I need a better camera but I probably wouldn't be able to figure it out anyway.
