Chase’s opinion of having to walk in the rain. Well, this is Chase’s opinion about a lot of things, really…

Wind whipping cold rain,
soaking my sweatshirt and pants –
sandals a bad choice.

Chase is hesitant
to leave the awning’s shelter –
“I’m OK, thank you.”

Pearl looks up, skyward,
as if asking for reprieve –
it does not come.

The rain comes harder,
fat drops fall from sky and trees –
Saturate the ground.

I move the dogs on
until their business is done –
then return home fast.

Shake shake… lift paw… shake.
Stare at me with saddened eyes –
“Why did you do that?”

The weather changes
in southern California
confuse my poor dogs.
