Walking the Dog

Our friend HH is away and she asked us to watch her pets, which means 3 cats, a dog, and a fish. The cats stay inside for the most part, so they’re easy, and the fish is a fish, but walking the dog is where things get a little more demanding. I’m a dog lover, too, but when I had a dog as a kid, I never walked it, we just let it run free. Walking a dog three times a day is a bit of a chore, especially when it’s not your dog. This means I have to drive over in the AM and do the walk, then we go back in the afternoon for the long walk, and then we go in the evening to hang out so he doesn’t get too lonely.

We’re happy to help, and their dog is really nice, if not a little hyper. Plus, on a bright note, we get to watch the Olympics in the evening, so everyone’s happy, though we’re getting tired of watching beach volleyball... or at least some of us are.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to gherringer for the pic.
