Monday Mischief: Working on the Chain Gang

Charles loves Louise. If she sniffs something, he sniffs it. If she pees on it, he has to pee on it. He follows her so closely sometimes that it bothers me, because he fits perfectly under her torso which freaks her out, and because he doesn’t move when she is peeing, which grosses me out.

Something very interesting must have come down the center of the road last night and since the dogs’ smellers are 25X more powerful than mine, they know what it is, but I sure don’t. Sofie is usually my street sniffer and mostly it is right in the center. Sometimes I have to pull her to the side so she doesn’t get run over by a car. The only thing I can think of is that it must be the foxes who walk down the center ridge (I don’t know why) and maybe they pee as they go.

With 3 dogs, it is very easy to run out of hands or feel like you are on a medieval rack when everyone wants to move along (in different directions usually) and you need to stop and pick something up (after getting a bag out of the pouch, unfolding it, and bending down… you get the picture) My answer is a CHAIN GANG (but a happy one not a bunch of prisoners). Since Mr. Charles wants to keep going and nothing stops him, I loop him onto Sofie’s lead. Then Sofie holds him back (since he is a little afraid of her) and I loop her onto Louise, who in most cases will stay when I tell her to. Louise is the heaviest and strongest of the 3 so I can keep control down the line.

Sniff and pee – Pee and sniff – What kind of mischief did you get into today?

DogDaz remembers and salutes the victims and survivors of the September 11th Terror Attack

I visited Ground Zero at the World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial while it was under construction. I am standing by the giant man-made waterfall with the names of the victims around the outside. It is very humbling and very eerie. Let the world practice peace and make war no more. – Lorian

Black and White Sunday: No Followers

I have 3 leaders and no followers. Well, I guess Mom is the follower. Maybe if I got a sled they would actually take me somewhere but knowing Sofie and Charles they would jump on and make Louise do all the work. Walking this trio is a blast. I use different colored leashes so that I can tell who’s where without having to look at the dog. Truthfully, I always know where Charles is, since his leash weighs about 1 ounce. Bark Out Loud. Have a colorful Sunday!

Monday Mischief: Double Leash Tango

Two leashes

I have been walking two dogs for so long it is second nature to me. From changing hands behind my back, because someone goes right and then left, or stretching my arms so wide that you would think I was a tree, I have got this down. Yes, those are knots in the lines that you see; I do that on every leash. First, I do that so I can grip the leash lower down at certain intervals when I want to shorten up and, also so that I can drop a leash and step on it without it running right under my foot. A funny thing happens if/when I do drop someone’s lead, they stop and turn around and look at me with a ‘what’s a matter with you’ face. Do you do a leash dance? What’s yours like?

What mischief did you get into today?
