We've seen Fire and We've seen Rain

Luckily for us, it has been on the News.
There have been huge fires to the south and north of us, and now huge floods to the north and east of us.
We did get a huge downpour on Saturday night.

 It moved around some mulch, but refilled our little water tank.
So the clean up won't be difficult.
 Sunday morning we were able to go for a quick 'business' walk.  We had to stay on the roads and not get wet.
This morning, we went to the Sports Grounds, so we could run around.
You can see by the sky that we were in for more rain.

Bella and's about 6:30 a.m. and the street lights are still on.
 Bella and Roxy ran around like crazy dogs. They chased each other and loads of birds. The pictures were way too blurry to get them in action.

 As you can see, we had the whole place to ourselves.

We needed a good run.  Just as we got back into the car, it started sprinkling.  We had a whole day of gentle rain.....while we watched others frantically, trying to sandbag their houses, or being rescued on the News.  We wish them luck.


  1. just goes from one extreme to the other over there.

    The heat continues here but we had rain Saturday & last night cannot wait for winter, she says it's easier to get & stay warm than it is to get & stay cool. I think we agree with her.

  2. We're so sorry to hear that Mother Nature is being so distructive again. It's just not nice of her at all!

    It was nice to see that you were able to get in some running and funnin' at the park. Stay away from the windows when the boomers start rolling thru.

  3. OMDs Daisy, Bella and every where seems to be extreme. I hope and purr your rain remains gentle. What a wonderful park you have run and romp in each day.
    I bet you all are tired when you get home. Silly question...what time does your sun rise this time of year. Lots of hugs and thanks again for your wonderful interview!!
    Madi your BFFF

  4. We came over to visit from Madi's where we just read your wonderful interview. You three are the cutest. That sure looks like a great place to have a nice run. Glad you didn't get rained upon. Have a great day.

  5. I hope you all stay safe and that the terrible fires and weather around you settle down. Extremes--it sounds like California.

  6. We are glad you are all OK. Sorry to hear the weather has gone from one extreme to another. Stay safe. Have a marvelous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  22. I'm glad that you guys are alright!

  23. So pleased to read that you have not had the worst of the extreme weather. Light rain surely shouldn't worry a Scottie dog!
    Toodle pip!

  24. It's 70 degrees here today and we're supposed to have thunder storms tomorrow. It looks like it might be a sit in the basement and watch tv kind of day.

    We're thinking your Mom might be a James Taylor fan. Ours is.

  25. Stay safe. Cannot believe how hot it's been in Oz. There again cannot believe how wet it's been in Scotland. Weird.

  26. Oh gurls, you look so nice and tired and happy in the last pic! Glad you got all worn out for your Moms!

  27. I've seen fire and I've seen rain
    I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
    I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend ~
    wishing you sunny days and I am glad you are a friend.
    Sweet William the Scot

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  29. OMD!! Your weather needs to make it's mind up, first fires and now floods!! I think it's very unfair, stay safe<3
    Love Milo :)

  30. Now that is the way to take advantage of a break in the weather. I am glad you got a chance before it started raining again.
    We are thinking of all of you and your scary fire and rain.


  31. Wow, looks like a great run! I bet you could run 87 miles in that big field!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

    Murphy & Stanley

  32. You can't complain about a little rain when people are losing their homes. Hope it just stays a little rain for you. Stay safe. Lee and Phod

  33. I'm so glad that you're okay. I think that the world is going crazy due to climate change. But, thank goodness that you've only seen it on the news.

    Cute photos of both of you!
