I finally got my act together and started walking the dogs properly. I’m such a lousy owner. We have a huge backyard and they chase each other. Still, I know, I know, getting OUT is great.
Now though, I can’t put on my shoes without them both going berserk at the back door begging to come too. If I don’t take them with me I feel like a complete heel. It’s a bit annoying if I’m honest.
Every walk we find a reward. ie a something good that we wouldn’t have seen if we didn’t go. One time it was an eagle flying near our house, sometimes rabbits and even a fox in broad daylight running along the road. All we want now is an eagle to fly past holding a fox that is chomping a rabbit. That would be the jackpot.
The walk a couple of days ago was much less exciting. Our reward was cows. I guess the real reward was seeing the dogs do a double-take of the cows, proper comedy-style. Maybe they thought they were really big dogs.
Don’t worry, relax, I’m not going to do “daily rewards” posts, I promise.
Unless, of course, that whole eagle-fox-rabbit thing happens in which case you’ll never hear the end of it. Not ever.
