These 7 Dogs Want to Know Who’ll Stop The Rain?

I don't know about your dog but Mia, my Rottweiler, can steadfastly refuse to set foot outside if it's wet. In fact the only way to get her out is to gently push her out of the doorway. Christopher, the youngest, loves it. Any excuse to get muddy!

But it seems Mia isn't alone in her dislike for the wet stuff. New research out this week, released by Churchill Insurance, claims that one in five dogs refuse to go outdoors when it's wet, while a third of dog owners tackle the British weather by dressing their dogs up in wet weather gear.

Here are some other dogs who, like Mia, make their feelings about the rain clear.

The dog who uses psychology against you and asks if you really want to go out, like, have you thought about what you'll do when you get wet?
