I've had one of each kind - Spencer doesn't care at all about getting wet. He even stands patiently while getting a bath, doesn't even try to escape. I often have to go fetch him on rainy days. He even demands his walk in the rain. Sadie on the other hand, was a princess & was convinced even a drop of water would cause great harm. On rainy days, I had to literally chase her down to get her to go out to potty. They are funny!
