There are pros and cons to being a dog owner.
Owning a dog means you'll have a fuzzy BFF who will always stick by your side and love you unconditionally for life.
But being a dog owner also means you'll have to deal with things like finding dog hair on everything you own, picking up poop and going for long walks in every type of weather.
Yep, if there's one thing that will make you question your decision to get a dog, it's having to drag your pup outside during a torrential downpour.
Like most pampered pooches, my dogs absolutely hate the rain. So, as you can imagine, the struggle of walking them during a storm is a special type of hell that no one should ever have to endure.
What should be a simple, leisurely stroll usually turns into a power struggle that ends with tangled leashes, a broken umbrella, two drenched dogs that insist on rubbing their fur dry on the leather couch and one wet, angry human.
The whole thing is such a pain in the ass I've actually considered moving to someplace where it hardly ever rains just so I wouldn't have to deal with my dogs' ridiculous rain-induced antics on the reg.
If you're also sick of dealing with your wet unruly dogs, I have some good news for you.
Dog umbrellas are now a real thing, and these adorable accessories are a serious canine game changer.
These clever contraptions look similar to an inside out umbrella that attaches to your pup's collar.
So all you have to do it clip it on, grab the handle like a normal leash, and head out into the rain like a dry doggy boss.
Seriously, where have these things been all my life?
Take a look at the pictures below to see these cute canine accessories.
