The day went well. I didn’t walk them until this evening and they got pretty hot even then, thus none touched their dinner even with the cool off period. J was there this evening, so she was going to put their bowls down again for them a little later as the bowls were already scooped to see if they would eat. It seemed as if she was staying for the night, so I said sure…it would be great. They all ate this morning.
The walk! It went well, but then Gabe had to relieve himself of the baggie kind. Not a problem, except there was a couple walking two cockers…one was off-leash. Well, we all know how insecure Dutch can be, but the couple had pretty good control of their dogs. This didn’t stop Dutch from doing a mean growl at the dogs. Fortunately, the couple was armed with treats and soon redirected each of your broods attention. Of course this all occurred as I was trying to tie the bag together, which was next to impossible. All three had themselves wrapped around my legs and themselves so we all looked like one big Christmas bow. The nice couple then asked if I needed help getting everyone untangled and I just said, “no. I’ll work it out.” Sometimes, I truly wish I had someone else along to take photos of my precarious predicaments.
My picture taking abilities are lacking in this photo, but Gerty was giving my hand some precious kisses.
