We don't go out in the rain

We don’t go out in the rain by choice. It sets the walk off on a bad footing for the dog and I to be miserable about it.

When we get caught in the rain, however, we adapt (seeking shelter or sheltered routes, sharing with other dog owners) and come home triumphant.

I used to work in customer service and avoided approaching angry customers because I didn’t want to go out in the rain. Most times, when I got caught, the resolution was relatively easy.

It’s far better to adapt, there and then, than to deal later with a situation that’s escalated.
