As I sit here writing this post, I see that it is almost dark outside, and it’s only 4:15 pm. We live just north of the 45th parallel, so darkness comes quite early this time of year for us and for all of our friends who live north of here. One of the things I struggle with is getting Kendall out for a walk when it gets dark so early. We’re entering one of the rainiest months in the Pacific Northwest. Coupled with the early sunsets it makes for a pretty difficult scenario when trying to get a Cavalier out for a walk.
Kendall hates to get her feet wet and will stand right outside the back door under the eaves unless you remind her that you’ve sent her out there to potty. Reluctantly, she picks her way through the grass to the closest spot she can possibly find. Sometimes I’m amazed that she can hold it so long.
How do you cope with the early sunsets and rainy weather?
