Our first rainy day together

Afterglow from playing
fetch with Papa for
over an hour.
The rains and winds were heavy throughout the day. This was our first rain storm with Ke-ola. Each new experience brings new understanding and new opportunities for growth. We discovered that Ke-ola doesn't care for the rain. Even with a sweater and jacket he plopped his butt down under the patio cover and wouldn't budge. 

The fact that he didn't want to go outside in the rain didn't hamper his energy level or desire for play. It seemed he had even more energy today than usual. We call it the rainy day wiggles. Dogs are just like kids. Ask any teacher about the energy level of his/her students on a rainy day and they'll tell you it's through the roof. Teaching martial arts students for over 25 years we've learned to be patient and creative on days like this. We did the same with Ke-ola.

I heard the tapping sounds of doggy feet and body slides from upstairs. When I came down to investigate I found my husband teaching Ke-ola to play fetch. Roland spent over an hour playing fetch with Ke-ola in the den. It was so funny to see them both like little kids having fun on a rainy day together. 

Yes, yes, yes, whatever you say,
just throw the ball!

Teaching Ke-ola that the rain
is not so scary.
Ke-ola ate well today and finished all of his meals. He took his meds and got through his treatments. He is getting so thick that he looks like the Incredible Hulk busting through his sweater. We decided to help Ke-ola learn to be comfortable in the rain. We set-up a pillow for him under the cover of our front patio and all came outside to hang out in the rain. He didn't seem to like it at first but when he saw that he was getting all of his humans' undivided attention he settled and began to enjoy himself. 

Roland is out with him again tonight. He's taking advantage that the rains have stopped for the moment and giving Ke-ola some exercise. Roland loves his time with Ke-ola. He always looks for any excuse to spend time playing with him. 

Wishing you and your pack peace today and everyday. Thank you for visiting.
