A Rainy, Wet Good Friday

Oh Dog! Happy Good Friday everybody! Lots of you are off work today. Jen isn’t, because her employer doesn’t recognize Easter or Good Friday as holidays. POO!


The weather here today? Rain. Lots and lots of rain. Flash flood watches are out all over. And since there are lots of dirt roads around here, there are some that are impassable.

For the occasion, I wrote a couple of poems I’m calling:



It’s raining and it’s pouring so,
I dare not into the yard go.
So out with the pads
for the lasses and lads.
Oh why couldn’t that rain be snow?


It’s raining again?
What is a poor dog to do?
I guess I’ll just nap.


Here’s hoping your day is not quite so wet. Happy Easter weekend!!!!

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  5. Good Morning! Perhaps Jen will give you an easter treat while she is at work. I am new here and finally read your full bio, we are neighbors of a sort. I live in Tuscaloosa! Such a small world. Yes it will be rainy but just for a bit. Have a good day.

  11. The schools are closed in Florida. We had very bad thunder, lightning, and rain over night. Sidney spent most of the night hiding in the closet.
