Dear Abby - Rainy Day Dachshunds

Dear Friends,

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 illustration of a dachshund walking in the rain with a little girl.  The girl is carrying a pitcher.

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!
