We're Driving Everyone Crazy

Finally it's not so hot out. But it's raining. It rained yesterday and today and it's supposed to rain for the next couple of days, too. This is great news for what grass we have left, but we are not water dogs - at all - and we can't go out and do this:
Please pardon our blur.
Sorry for the horrible photo quality. Blog Mom's camera is not adequate for capturing our supersonic Pei play. Now that Franklin and I are all bonded and on the same page we have gotten used to being able to do zoomies and play Pei tag in the yard when it gets cool enough after dinner. Faced with two days of (very much needed) rain, we're getting a little antsy. I think that everyone should be able to understand that. Yet, you'd think that zoomies in the living room was disturbing the peace or something, the way everyone seems kind of testy about it. Thing is, we don't really care that much. They'll get over it.


  1. Raining here in Nh also! We need it, but the dogs refuse to go out in the rain. Lola and Franklin zoomies in the living room sound fun, we do that and run from bedroom to bedroom. Our Mommy gets angry sometimes, but she gets over it for quick.

  2. Hi Lola and franklin ..

    I hope moms have pei proofed the living room ... I remember those days when it rained so hard I couldn't even go for my toilet break in peace..

    But it's definitely nice to be out to stretch those muscles of yours once the weather cools down a little..

  3. Lola,
    Rain here too but I has no one to do zoomies with me in da living rooms... ....sigh. :( Mom does not like to take me out in it except to do my busyness so I have been cooped up inside too. Hopefully tomorrow we will gets out for a bit.

    Woofs and Licks,

    PeeS Hey Franklin!

  4. Hope the weather clears up quick and you can go out for zoomies with Franklin... a restless pei does drive everyone crazy, we need our daily dose of running and sniffing, even if it's inside the house :)

    Licks, hero

  5. Hi, Lola!
    I am very happy to know you and Franklin are getting along so well!
    Zoomies in the living room?? I know about those!
    Kisses and hugs

  6. It sounds like zommie plan. Those things are fun for a rainy day

  7. Lola - this looks like so much fun!! We are on our way back from our vacation in the north woods right now. In fact, I am stuck in the car (in traffic) as I type this- talk about going stir crazy!!!!

    Your pal, Pip

  8. My goodness! Surely they don't expect you to just lay there all day! Maybe you should try running up and down the stairs or using the cats as hurdles. You know, add a little variety to life!


  9. Zoomies! I like to run around and pretend I'm a rocketship!

  10. Lola and Franklin,
    Looks like you two are having so much fun!

  11. Rain stinks! I don't get why your humans would be having issues with zoomies in the living room....mine giggle when I do zoomies. What is up with your humans? Maybe you should send 'em to Mayzie's house so they can get in her licker cabinet and relax ;o)

  12. Amazing how pawrents get about you doing laps! Ours get all uptight if a rousing game of eat your sister goes more than a couple rounds. So glad you are all bonded. Ruger is finally settling into our pack, even with brother Lucky. Now we just have to teach him to leave the kitteh brothers and sister alone!

    Hope you get some rain free zoomie time soon!

  20. Hi Lola and Franklin what a cute fun might be a bit of a blur but that just indicates you were having a good Pei Day.
    Hugs Madi and Mom

  21. Hi Lola! Thanks for following my blog! I has a sister who is half sharpei!

    Boxer wiggles,

  22. You are soooo fast with those zoomies!

  23. That's a great shot. You seem to be having so much fun!


  24. I don't do zoomies I has two speeds, dawdle and stop and that's it. Oh hang on no it isn't I do being pushed in my Marvellous Peppermint Molly Mobile and I also do carries by Momma or Pops but still no zoomies..............bol


  25. Hey lola...I'm your newest follower...time we read each other's rain here for awhile...super weather in Nova Scotia Canada! Eagerly waiting for more adventures!

  26. We feel your pain. We have had a lot of inside time this summer with the horrible heat that wouldn't go away. And then we get in trouble if we race in the rain and make the house all muddy - what's a pup to do? We have a few days of nice temps right now, so we are all outside a lot today enjoying it while it lasts.

  27. Hi Lola, It has been a ruff summer with days so hot you can't stand being outside except early Am & late Pm. On days that it is only 90 degrees it rains!! It has been ruff for us all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Thanks for you visit and your kind words!!!
    XXO, Bambi & Fern

  28. The blurred photo seems like a good way to show how super-fast you are. We had a reprieve in weather the other day, and all of a sudden Mr. B, who has been slow all summer, became "jackrabbit Mr. B" and was leaping all around on his walk.

  29. WOW! You really ARE super fast! I thought maybe your wrinklies would slow you down but they sure don't, do they? I think the humans should be grateful that you lets them sit in your play area. Make sure to remind them of that the next time it's time to play. I bet they'll feel bad they even brought it up.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  30. Im thrilled to know that your pup is a shar pei. Onr of the dog that we adopted is half ridgeback and half shar pei. New follower, jazevox

  31. Thanks for stopping by my blog, Lola! You and your brother are cute!

    Boxer wiggles,

  32. yup, miss lola, mama and daddy don't like it when we do zoomies in our living room either. i think they are just kinda square. teeheehee.
