the plum rain begins

I think the rainy season may have begun. While it has a very poetic name—tsuyu, the kanji for which literally means "plum rain"—the reality of a wet June-July is going to be less romantic I'm sure, principally due to puppy-walking obligations.

Of course this could be a last May shower before a karatsuyu (rainy season timeframe that sees little rain). One can only hope.

The G-dog doesn't care too much about the ame (rain), unless it's really pouring then it gets in her eyes and tickles her snout. Though maybe she, like I, prefers nekonkeame (cat's-fur rain), but in her case it wouldn't be because misty light rain is less bothersome. Anything related to neko (cats) in any remote way will get this inu's attention right quick, even if a cat just once maybe sort of walked near it.

But these days she's almost as concerned with trying to eat as many overripe fallen squished cherries she can quickly nibble off the pavement before I drag her away. Hopefully there aren't as many plum trees around Tokyo as there are cherry trees, or else plum season will be trying on my nerves (and/or G's tummy), to say the least.

Well, I've got to go out into the jan-jan ("cats & dogs" type of rain) now for the last G walk of the day.


cutest post ever!!
btw what kind of dog is G-fresh? Is she part of the shiba inu?

Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiisssss YOUouououououo!!!
to me this post sound like:Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers;
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked;
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
Where's the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

H: Thanks, G is kawaii beyond belief so it's kinda hard to write anything about her that does not turn out saccharine.

Peter Piper: Unh-hunh, I see. Perhaps you should consult an audiologist?
i really liked reading about all the different kinds of rain - educational post, huzzah! :)


p.s. tom and i have finished our move to scumberland *hee hee* it's a bit of a fixer-upper apaato, but it's huge and cheap and has a gigantic balcony and a big storage room and a gas stove, and and's just awesome! hopefully we'll get a few improvements and really be able to enjoy this place for a few years. we're both really excited! :D
There is nothing boring about listening to you yatter about the G-dog. She just is toooooo cute!

By the way, your sister once told me that dogs are "angels in fur" and I think that is soooo appropo! I think she is right, even though I find it really difficult to touch them (when I don't know where their noses have been, lol).

yeah, nothing wrong with G-dog, it's the rain part, we have enough of it in Montreal.
yeah, we've been having crummy cold, rainy weather here... :(
