Do Silkies like the rain? - Page 3

post #21 of 24

Today we discovered that 3 out of 4 of my Silkie teenagers prefer to play in the rain and get thoroughly drenched. I took pity on the sweet one and brought it in for a blow-dry. When I took her back out, the other two wet ones had set aside their differences and had snuggled up together. 

Interestingly, their daddy, who is the one usually in the rain, was mysteriously dry today...

I have a question about Silkies. I live in WA and it is always raining and it' s muddy all the time. i love Silkies but I have never had one because they wold get sick if they get to wet. Since I joined BYC I keep hearing about how Silkies love the rain and mud. Would they be fine if it is raining for days on end?
