We love Wednesdays because most Wednesdays we get a morning dog walk with the kids and an evening dog walk with Uncle Scott. This Wednesday was no exception. Dooley is still learning about heeling instead of taking humans for a drag. Emerson and I usually end up walking with Mom. It’s dark. Uncle Scott brings a bright light to help with any necessary clean up. We have fun. Last night we found a toad in the middle of the road. We got VERY excited. Uncle Scott and Mom didn’t know why we were so excited, as the toad was camouflaged to match the road surface. Each of us tried to pull in different directions. All of us wanted to surround the toad and sniff it. The more we sniffed, the more wound up we got. Finally, Mom saw the toad and so Uncle Scott took all 3 leads and Mom got a pooper scooper bag out and picked up the toad and put him on the grass of the yard at the corner of our street. While all of this was happening, a new dog and its owner came to the corner across the street. A chow chow. We crossed paths with the Chow chow several times and I think by the end Dooley was beginning to understand that we weren’t going to get to sniff noses… but maybe he hasn’t given up hope as yet. We always enjoy walks when we get to see other animals!
