Oh dear! Sorry, but I had to chuckle. We are very familiar with flooding situations here in Texas and it is not fun when you have a dog that doesn't like to get his dainty tooties wet! Monty couldn't care less, he goes out, does his thing and rushes straight back. My doxie on the other hand will stand in the pouring rain on the deck getting absolutely drenched because he doesn't want to go on the wet grass! Daft dog!
