It’s pissing it down. We’ve towel dried her but she won5 tolerate the hairdryer so she’s a bit damp and taken herself off to her bed. Do I need to worry or will she steam herself dry?

she'll end up licking all the water off anyway if she's anything like my dog smile she'll be fine!

There was a bit of grumpiness while I towelled her.

I always keep one of his coats by the back door so if it’s raining the only bits that get wet are his paws and head , he can’t go to bed damp as he sleeps on the beds .

We are thinking of buying a coat....but I'm not sure about it and I'm not sure she would be either.

We have equafleece coats and jumpers , the one we keep by the door is a polo neck coat so it has good coverage .

Outs goes to bed a bit damp when it's been raining and she's gone out for her bedtime toilet. She's just noisier because she'll lick herself more.

My long haired double coated dog's tummy seems to be impossible to dry so she will often have a slightly damp tummy when she goes to bed after her last wee at night.

She's small so even worse that the damp tummy is the small slugs that can attach themselves to her undercarriage.

She knows now that when she comes inside she has to stand still while I dry her paws, give her tummy a wipe and inspect for slugs.
