This one's for Sir Doug.


To tell the weather, go to your back door and look for the dog.

If the dog is at the door and he is wet, it's probably raining. But if the dog is standing there really soaking wet, it is probably raining really hard.

If the dog's fur looks like it's been rubbed the wrong way, it's probably windy.

If the dog has snow on his back, it's probably snowing.

Of course, to be able to tell the weather like this, you have to leave the dog outside all the time, especially if you expect bad weather.

Sir Hugh :)

We've never tried the two-pet household. Willowmount Black Luke, "The Baron", was too old to adjust to another animal. The CAT owns every space inside the house now.

However, CAT is choosy about going out. She waits for the snow to exceed 30 cm in depth, because that is when she asks to go out. I make a path for her to travel in the back yard. What a memory! At other times she goes out on a leash and other animals wisely avoid her.

CAT sleeps with her chin in the air if it is going to rain or snow [i.e. if a system of low pressure is approaching]. There's no need for a barometer.

Cheers, Doug ;~}

I can always tell when a storm is coming. My dog will be found hiding under the table, in a cupboard or sitting behind my back on the sofa shaking like a leaf.

She can hear thunder well before a storm is due, and that's when I start shutting windows, etc.
