As is the case every morning, Canyon, Sky and I awoke as the first dawn's light began to come through the window. Dad and Mom aren't too happy with us most mornings because we are rising before 6am. This morning, the dawn came a little later than usual because the sky was black with thunder clouds. Every few seconds a big flash of light and a terrible noise occurred. Mom woke up and wondered aloud what time it might be. She put on her glasses and looked at the clock - OH NO! THE POWER WAS OUT SHE SAID. Quickly she ran to the dining room to look at the battery powered clock. She came back and told Dad it was 6:05am. They got up and Dad took us to the garage to wake Brook and head outside for our morning trip to the dog yard. While we were out, we got soaked (Dad said later the rain gauge had over an inch of rain from the 1 hour deluge this morning). I was thirsty, so I decided to dig a hole that could fill up with water for a drink. Dad came back from his trip to the big white porcelain water bowl in the basement to let us in and found me with my paws covered in mud. All of us got our feet wiped when we came in and I got put right in my crate. I sat and cried because Brook wasn't with me and Brook sat and cried in the dining room right by the door to the garage and cried. Finally, Mom was headed to the basement to get clothing from the laundry baskets in the laundry room and let Brook into her crate next to mine. Dad took some pictures of me and my muddy paws to share with you.
