Rain on my face

One of the things I find most fun about having Dex is watching him discover new things. Yesterday, I saw one of the cutest things ever, and I only wish I had my camera with me to capture it.

When I took Dex out after breakfast, it was raining. Not a cold, drizzly, miserable rain. It was a leisurely, summer-like rain, the kind where big fat rain drops just plop down as they please, to gently caress the flowers and garden startings. It was so comfortable, I did not even mind getting wet.

Dex has been out in the rain before, and he when he has to go out to take care of business in the rain, he is the model of efficiency. Head down, straight to work, no pauses, back inside, treats can wait until we are dry. But yesterday morning, even he realized this was a different rain. He could feel it on his coat, and shook several times, but made no effort to speed things up. He even started to play a little in the wet grass. And then....he lifted his head, and discovered the joy of this delicious, delicate, warm rain hitting his face for the very first time. And he savored it.

I could not help but learn from his example, and do the same. When we finally went back inside, I did not mind one bit the extra wetness to his kisses.
