A weekly series highlighting four interesting moments from a week of walks.
Happy Friday! What are you doing this weekend? Today, we're kicking off the weekend with this new series, Four Walks. Here's what we found interesting this week...
Monday was hot. Like instant-tongues-out kind of hot. We had kept the walk relatively short, but stalled to sniff a nearby school. The boys have sniffed the landscaping at the school hundreds of times, but on that day, something must have really required their noses. So, there I stood, waiting for them to wrap up their sniff-investigation when a woman passing by yelled out, "I don't why we call them walks, when we really do more standing and waiting." Hah.
On Tuesday, we went for an evening walk, and it was wild. For some reason, from the instant we walked out our front door, Pierogi and Gilly were as energized as ever -- and that enthusiasm never wavered! They perked up at the slightest noises, lunged towards every motion in the neighborhood and generally walked in a path that was anything but straight. I held Pierogi's leash and Mike held Gilly's and every time that their leashes would tangle (which was often), Mike would tell them to stop cross leash-inating. Get it? I though it was funny. Maybe it was the chaos that made it funny :)
On Wednesday, we popped out for another evening walk and ran into one of our neighbors. He's the most neighborly neighbor and always has random, but useful information about everything up his sleeve, which we love. (Plus, years and years ago, he had a Boston Terrier!) Anyways, on that night, he mentioned that he recently spotted a...fox! In broad daylight, he had witnessed the fox run through the perimeter of our backyard. So we've been more alert when playing in our backyard. Do you live in an area with foxes? If you do, here's What to Do About Foxes.
Thursday was a boys only walk between Mike, Pierogi and Gilly. I sat out because of miserable seasonal allergies. Allergies are the pits, so I'm grateful that I'm the only one in our family that's affected. We have a few doggie friends with seasonal allergies, so we know a little bit about how unfun they can be for dogs, too.
What's new in your world?
Woof! (Hey, there!) Pierogi, Gilly and Sarah here. Thanks for stopping by our dog blog. We're a little dog-obsessed around here and Pierogi & Co. is all about inspiring you to enjoy the dog days. Because life's more fun with your best (furry) friend by your side. So grab a bone and follow along as we stop to sniff the flowers...
