Time wasn't on my side yesterday evening. I got home quite late from work and had a concert to attend. The dogs were waiting to be fed and walked, so I did something very brave. I brought them out for their walks together.
I shortened Rusty's leash and double-checked his harness just to be sure he won't be able to slip off like the night before. Then I stepped out of the house nervously with two dogs in tow.
Rusty is fast and Cookie is slow. The agile Rusty kept forging ahead only to find himself held back by the leash. His clumsy buddy trailed behind, looking lost and confused, I kept tripping over him.
To make matters worse, the stray dog living in the open field sprinted over to join in the fun, much to the chagrin of my dogs. Three frisky dogs and one harrassed walker - it was a nightmare. I brought the dogs home quickly and congratulated myself for losing none of them, or my sanity for that matter.
