Well, it’s Seattle and it’s Thanksgiving week, so naturally it is, as a relative of mine used to say, “raining like stink.” It’s so unremittingly wet that even Bella is willing to wear a raincoat. Yes, a Rain Coat! (Though she does reserve the right to bite at it when it comes on and off.) Actually, she quite likes having the raincoat on, since it means she can romp around outdoors longer than she’d be able to stand without it. Being a Pibble, she has very little body fat and a short, “hard” coat with no undercoat or loft to it so she gets cold fast once she’s wet.
