The rain is something that does not make BJ (Benjamin Jacob) happy. He likes snow; he hates rain. As far as I'm concerned, when I walk him, both are a pain. By the time I get him out of his raincoat or snowsuit and dry him off and then get me out of my boots, my coat, etc., I'm exhausted. The worse part of that weather is that I can't take him to Central Park because of the mud. That leads to needing to exercise him in the apartment or playing fetch in the hallway. I'm very happy the weather is going to be nice for a while.
