One afternoon, I took my dog, Sweetie, for a walk after a big rain storm.  The sun was bright and everything looked washed and clean.  Sweetie was splashing in the puddles and having so much fun.  I started singing this little song to myself.  I didn't think much of...had no intention of recording or doing anything with it.  But while I was cooking supper, I continued singing it and my husband, Bob, said, "That's a good song."  "Really?" I asked.  After supper, I went out to the studio and worked on a little and came up with this.  And funny, it's turned out to be one of my favorites.  


Rain doggie, raindrops on your back make a
Rain doggie, sparkle in the sun
Rain doggie, in your coat of diamonds
Trying to catch a rainbow
When the storm is done
Splashing in the puddles
Sniffing in the grass
Lead me by your nose
We'll both get nowhere fast
Stop and watch a bunny
Hopping thru the ferns
You don't know how to hunt
You should would like to learn
Lapping dirty water
Doesn't rain taste good?
Isn't it delightful
Squishing in the mud?
Every time I'm with you
We have so much fun
You're my bestest  friend
I guess this must be love
Repeat 1st verse
You sparkle in the sun
Rain doggie's having fun
