Excited Dog Tries to Catch Rain Drops at Home in Drought-Affected Queensland

Indie the dog couldn’t contain her excitement when rain fell on her home in drought-struck Toowoomba, Queensland, on January 17.

The Australian cattle dog was so thrilled with the downpour she celebrated by leaping up and trying to catch the droplets in her mouth.

Indie’s owner Georgia Smith filmed the happy pooch running around the yard.

“Get those drips, get ’em baby,” Smith can be heard laughing in the background of the footage.
