Bryce Canyon Rain

One day it was real cloudy and then it rained - really hard!

When it was raining we enjoyed the spy window.  I liked to bark at everyone going past us.

Then mom pulled out rain gear!  Let's just say I was NOT impressed!

My raincoat fit but Stanley outgrew his.  Mom said she was not impressed with the gear either (Kong) cuz she had to waterproof it!  But all the hoomans thought we looked cute.

BUTT I guess it got the job done.

We were walking along the rim of the canyon and it started thundering and lightening.  Mom said, "Let's hurry to the truck!"

Dad said, "Hurry boys!"

All these people had their cameras poised to get photos of the rain and lightening.  Mom said that was kind of stupid.  And about 1 minute after we took these pictures . . .

Just as we were getting to the truck . . .

The heavens opened up and it was a downpour for about an hour!  Mom said she is sure there is more camera equipment for sale on ebay now!  We just went back to the spy window.

Tomorrow we will show you what it looked like when the fog set in!

Murphy & Stanley


  1. guess what? the same happened with my raincoat... probably because it got wet and shrinked :o) the mama was one of that peeps who tried to snap photos of a thunderstorm... and she learnt that a wet slr cam can zap you one you will never furget :o)

  2. I like your raincoats! It must been kind of scary to be out walking in the canyon when the thunder and lightning started!

  3. Hari OM
    You pretty much got everything right then - or mum did - or the group effort... how wonderful to be able to spy on the weather up close and dry!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Those jackets are pretty schnazzy!

  5. Murphy and Stanley I love love love your slickers.
    Dang right it was pretty stupid to be standing outside when a storm was coming.
    Mom has a very healthy/scary respect for t-storms.
    We love your spy seat
    Hugs madi your bfff

    PS My human sis and BIL loved loved loved Zion. They took a walking tour yesterday and sent us some really pretty photos from the balcony of their hotel. Now they are flying home today just in time to hunker down for that monster Matthew storm.

  6. That's a gorgeous rainbow and I love your raincoats! How fun! I wish we could travel more!

    Lily & Edward

  9. So glad your mom is such a smart lady-would have hated you to have been near those folks and experienced lightning firsthand!
    Love the pics, I still think you look cute in your rain coats.
    Noreen and Hunter

  10. Silly people to stay out with a storm coming! and silly to sell a rain coat that needs waterproofing
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  11. You look so cute in your rain gear. When you see a rainbow that means a rainbow bridge angel is missing their parents very much and reaching out to them.

  12. Mama says that is JUST what it did at the Grand Canyon when she was least she didn't break her camera!

    Be lucky your raingear doesn't have rubber duckies on it like Arty's does...BOL!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  13. Stanley definitely needs a longer coat! But Jessie sez it shows off his cute butt. UGH, I don't need to hear that, Jessie!!!!

  14. OMD! MY STUD MUFFIN! You look HAWT in your Manly rain gear!!!! I almost fainted!!! Though, I thinks the hoodie is a little much...I thinks you can go without it...I likes the wet head look anyhu! BOL!
    I loves the rainbow! Did you see if there was a pot-o-chicken at the end??! I bets that would be goooooood chickens!
    Okays, goin' out to bark with ya!
    Your Fiance, the one with the most FABulous furs, and the funky ear, Ruby ♥♥♥♥

  15. Oh my gosh what an adventure! Glad you have a spy window, how else are you going to keep an eye on things. Good job letting your Mom and Dad know when something is outside your window. Gotta keep em safe! ~Nose nudges Bess a fellow barker and let'er know'er of stuff.

  16. We actually needed rain jackets this morning i the Mile High. I liked it but of course Sam didn't. Elsa kept looking up toward the sky with a "what's this wet stuff?" look. She kind of enjoyed it, at least she was very frisky in it. Stay dry and don't buy any 'new' camera equipment. 😇

  17. It is nice to have your wheelie house to take refuge in during the rain.


Don't just sniff around, leave your mark with a comment so we know you've stopped by. Wags!!
