Since I was wide awake so early this morning I decided to take a walk over to Bonnie’s house. She & Annie walked me back home (taking an extremely long route). I decided to try to take the boys for a walk, too. Denzel didn’t want to cooperate and Reggie was too fixated on Annie. After about a half a block I decided to turn around and try them one at a time. So, I dropped Reggie off at home and Denzel & I started our trek…. out the driveway…. barely in front of my neighbor’s house. He decided that was enough walking for him. We went back inside and I switched dogs. Reggie started walking along as if he’s been doing it for years. We made it 2 blocks before we had to turn around cuz I noticed he had to go potty & I forgot potty bags. Fortunately, our stop in front of the baseball field was a fake out and he made it home & into our own yard.
About a 1/2 hour ago I decided to try Reggie again, this time arming myself with a baggie. This time we made it all the way to Bon & Annie’s. He stopped to visit Annie for a while, got hosed down, then we were on our way back home. The poor thing was soooooo hot would slow down everytime we hit a shaded area on the sidewalk. I thought I was going to have to carry him home from the baseball field, though. He was panting pretty hard and walking really slow. We stopped and took a rest then he just about ran the rest of the way home. The walk must have tired him out pretty good because he’s cuddled up to his baby sleeping pretty hard.
