I am taking a break in my Pet Related Collections series to talk to you about rain.
I don't mind a little light rain in Spring or Summer, when it is nice and warm and just drizzling. More than that and I am not a fan. We get rain on and off here during Spring and Summer, and I was looking for dog images to show my Momma that old fashioned dogs didn't care for rain either.
Instead, I found these vintage dachshund images showing rainy day doxies. I thought you might enjoy seeing them too.
This is a vintage Calling All Girls magazine cover featuring a girl and her dachshund, inside (as they should be) watching the rain. It is dated April 1959.
This dachshund helps a teenage girl wait in the rain. They are both covered with newspapers. I hope it is keeping them dry! This Calling All Girls magazine cover is from April 1958.

Vintage postcard of a little girl cuddled up with her dachshund under a big green umbrella.
Vintage illustration of two dachshunds under an umbrella -- with a white cat playing peek-a-boo.
Vintage illustration of two dachshunds under an umbrella in the rain.
Vintage black and white postcard of a dachshund and a little girl under an umbrella. It is a cute picture but she needs to hold the umbrella up so they both will stay dry!
This vintage postcard is from the same series -- a dachshund and a little girl walking under an umbrella.
This children's book illustration reads NOVEMBER and it depicts a dachshund walking with a little girl who wears a red coat.
In this picture, the dachshund wears a red coat and walks with a little girl in the rain. This vintage illustration is by Maria Pia Franzoni Tomba. She did many sweet illustrations of children, usually signed "Mariapia."
I hope you enjoyed this little rainy day excursion with me! This is the way I enjoy rain best -- cozy and warm inside, just looking at pictures of rain.
I would like to continue with my series of Pet Theme Collections next week. If you want to join with sharing some photos of any pet theme (or animal theme) collection, I would love to hear from you. Please just let me know in the comments, below!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend - lots of sunshine and no rain!
