Who’ll Stop the Rain, #1104



My dogs would like you to believe that they are so tough.  They chase our cats around and show strangers who’s boss by trying to hump their legs when they dare enter into our house.  (Yes, I know this is an issue)

It is all a front though.  You should see them when it rains.  All of their macho vibrato flies out the window as they cower back in fear over just a few little itty bitty raindrops.  It’s like I can hear their thoughts.  “You mean you want us to go outside in that,” they seem to be saying as they glare at me when I open the door to let them out.

What is it with dogs and rain?  I mean – if you gotta go – you gotta go.  I’m curious if other dog owners have the same experience and what they do with their dogs on a rain day.  Please, chime in. I’d love to hear what your dogs do in the rain.

For now, if my dogs could pick the song of the day, I know this would be it.  “Who’ll Stop the Rain” by Creedence Clearwater Revival is a perfect fit.  Woof!

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!

  1. Great topic and song! Our dogs don’t love the rain either. Although Riley has finally outgrown it, in the past, he would go out and when he came back in, he would lay on his back waiting for me to take a towel and dry his paws. I have read that some dogs don’t like the rain because it amplifies sound and gets their heart beating faster. I am not sure if that is true or if they simply look at it like a bath, which mine don’t like either. In AZ, they never really have the opportunity to adjust to it being normal either.
