How you can have a chance of showers on a sunny day

This was a typical scene over the last week.

Me: Here comes Riley. You may want to watch out.

Girls: Weren’t you just playing fetch with him?

Me: Yep, but he took a detour.

It's a dog. He's wet. And he's walking straight towards you...Girls: He’s looking pretty damp. Did he shake out?

Me: I don’t think so. It’s OK. You’ll stay dry as long as he doesn’t drop the ball. Because when he drops the ball,he usually…Oh no…..

Riley shakes it out


Girls: Aaaaaaagh!……

Me [now soaking wet]: Thanks for watering the grass, Riley.

– The End –

Join us next week as we chronicle how Riley can sniff out pieces of bread from 50 yards and can do all sorts of acrobatics to reach them.
