Sure, we exercise a lot, but I prefer off leash walks by far. The dogs can run like maniacs, I have my hands free, and we all have a grand ol' time. But I needed to put out some business cards in a local "city" (in New Hampshire, anything with buildings close to each other and no farms is a city), so I figured the pups and I could practice leash manners while taking in the local color.
|Yup. Definitely in NH.|
Skye hates leash walks, so she made sure to look extra unhappy in all her pictures.
|Keep that camera out of biting range Mom.|
If Skye didn't hate leash walks to begin with, she still would have hated this one. Sweatshirt, Easy Walk Harness, and Waist Leash. Fail, Fail, Fail.
We did get to meet a shop dog with some friendly advice for dogs on the street. Or at least for their humans...
|"Scoop the poop"|
If nothing else, at least Parker got to pee on a few signs and gain some new territory.
|First the stop sign, then the world!|
For the most part, I had a good time. But no one wanted to pet Skye even with her sweatshirt and her polite behavior. I'll have to break out the fairy wings next time!
|Excuse me? Fairy wings?|
|You can just leave me here, thanks. I'm sure these nice rich people would love to adopt me.|
