Our rain

These pictures show you the kind of rain we get this time of the year. Here it rains dust! It is called "Lluvia lagunera" (regional rain). This happened yesterday and it lasted 8 hours! If you dare to go out you get dust in your mouth, your eyes, your ears, your nose and believe me... its disgusting! After the dusty rain you know you will have 2 or 3 days of cold weather. Yesterday morning we had like 80 degrees and right now we are at 20 degrees.

Do you remember I told you about Lloron, the dachshund who was lost some days ago and we helped him to find his home?? Well, today I saw him again. This time he was with his owner and now he has a collar with an ID. He also was wearing a bandana. I was happy to see him again but then he was not so nice. While my mom and his owner were chating.... he was sniffing me. Poking his nose in my... you know. I had to put my butt on the ground to stop him. Not enough! The humans were laughing, and believe me.... it was not funny. This time I was happy when he went away!
I hope you all are enjoying your weekend!
Have a good night

Deefor said...

Is that a raincoat? It looks very cozy. Lloron better be a gentledoggie. But I can understand. I never see cute doggies like you in Colorado.

Momo & Pinot said...

Lorenza Girl! :)

We're glad Lloron has an ID. His bandana looks good on him.

The sky looks scary. Hope you don't get caught heavy rain during your walky.

Lloron needs to learn some manners and be more of a gentleman! You look so pretty in your pink floral outfit, Lorenza!
I suppose this dust must get inside the house too so that your mom has to dust every day?! YUK!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Byron y Xinver said...

Nos alegramos mucho por partida doble. POr ver un perrito como tú, Lorenza, qué bonito es... Y por que le ayudárais a encontrar sus dueños. Nosotros lo hicimos una vez con uno muy pequeñito que se llamaba Cupido.

happy said...

That is some dusty rain you have there!

You look so sweet in the pretty pink dress, Lorenza!

Hmm...Lloron must be quite smitten by you ;-)

Girasol said...

Caz said...

He was not being a gentlemen then?? NAUGHTY BOY. Wow you have strange weather. Love the pink jacket.

Ludo the cool dude

4xBs said...

hi Lorenza, Lloron is kind of skinny, isn't he? we think he has a crush on you.

that rain looks and sounds really ugly. we are sure that we would not like that.


Amber-Mae said...

Lloron is a bit on the skinny side but I'm sure he's all well taken cared of now. Hmm, I HATE it when male dogs do that to me! I usually give them back a nice snap.

Love licks,

BrandytheGreat said...

I think Lloron likes you! Well, he does look like you in a way!
PS I like your dress! You always look so cute!

Moco said...

He can tell you are a lady of class and high breeding.



Maybe Lloron was just so happy to see ya again that he forgot his manners. I do the same thing when dogies mess with my butt..I sit on it & show them my teeth. Is he getting enough to eat cause he looks kinda skinny.

I would have been very scared if I had seen them scary clouds in the sky & would have run babk home.

Love the dress and love ya lots..Mona

Thor said...

Olá Lorenza! Gostei de saber que Lloron está usando um ID! Mas ele precisa ser mais educado com você!


Gus and Louie said...

We got what we hope is our last snow of the's almost the middle of March....we want flowers not snow...

Stay warm, Lorenza!!


Comet and BLU said...

We think Lloren has a crush on you! How could he resist you in your cute pink dress.

We get dust storms here too, but usually in August.

Kiwigirl said...

Wow, Lorenza, that's pretty impressive rain you get over there! You better stay indoors when that happens... brrh!

Hana said...

Lorenza, that is a very nice pink outfit you have on!!! But, the dust in the air is not nice at all.

I think Casper's knitted bandanna is very pretty. I hope you can get your Mom or Grandma to make you one. If you look at Casper's blog, you can see the other bandanna his friend has, plus you can see the blanket too! Click on the picture on his blog to see an enlarged version.

Chinook said...

Lorenza you look so cute in your dresses!! How many of them do you have? He must have found you really attractive. =)

We've got heavy rain here all the time - I was caught in the rain yesterday! But at least it isn't dusty and stuff.

Lotsa licks,

Scrappy and Pebbles who are so happy to be back

Mango said...

Dust rain looks nasty. Glad the weather cleared up so you could model that cool retro outfit.

Go easy on the little dude sniffing your nicies. He must be in love!


Mack said...

Oh Sweet Lorenza,
Be careful of all that dust!

Lloren is not at all a gentleman is he?

Verdi y Gaucho tibetano en Madrid said...

ejem ejem mi chamaquita.. es tu novio???

Ike said...

Dust storms sound almost as bad as snow.

Petra said...

I'm glad Lloron had a collar and an ID AND that he was with his owner! That was a happy reunion!

I hope you stay dry; the weather looks kind of scary.

Lenny said...

That rain looks like no fun. Lloron looks like he has been on your special diet - he is so skinny!

Your friend, Lenny

Two Wild and Crazy Guyz said...

He's looks really handsome Lorenza, but we guess he is just a wolf in sheep's clothing! Ha! Ha!
Some guys just don't know how to be nice...

Peanut said...

My dad says he keeps getting sand storms and then gets sand in all those places you mentioned. Nice to see Lloron with his human but he shouldn't have been rude and sniffed you when you didn't want to be sniffed.

Agatha and Archie said...

Oh boy and we thought snow was bad!!! Your dress is so lovely we thihk that Lloron was "smitten" with you!!(he would have been without the dress also!!) Love A+A

Koobuss said...

Oh Lorenza!

Your rain storm was way different from the kind that we get. The rain that we get makes you wet (shudder, ick,) Who cleans up after one of those storms? Do people have to go outside and dust everything off? And then your temperature drops from 80 degrees to 20 degrees? YIKES!! I would not like that at all.

Llorne is a cute guy, but it looks like he had bad manners. He doesn't know that he needs to behave like a gentleman if he wants to have any chance at all with the ladies. I'm glad that you put him in his place, Lorenza. And the humans should not laugh at this. This is serious. And you looked so nice all dressed up in your pink flowered dress. I'd be mad at everybody until they apologized.

I can't wait to see you with your hats on. I'm sure they will be awesome.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

raining dust?! how awful is that..

we will choose to hibernate at home...

Snowball said...

It has been raining a lot here too. I am going for a picnic on Thursday. I hope it will not rain if not, the picnic would probably be canceled... I am having my paws crossed.

Lloron look so skinny. I hope he is not sick or anything. I hate dogs thats sniff me at **you know where** too. I would have snapped hard at him. You are such a gentle girl for not doing the same.


Noah the Airedale said...

Oooh we hope you didnt go out in that horrid rain.
Isn't it good that Lloron has an ID tag. His mum must have listen to yours.

"Raining dust." Sounds like the duststorms Jan went through when she lived in Arizona. Not something you want to be out in.
