There are rainy, damp days when it’s the last thing I want to do,
and the only thing she wants to do.
Go for a walk!
So I grab my favorite trench & umbrella and she grabs her leash & collar and off we go!
Sounds all civilized I know.
Trust me it’s not. She has me all twisted like this before we step out of the house!
Once we’re outdoors, she behaves!
There are others watching you know.
The little ones are often scooped up when she comes barreling down the sidewalk.
The brave little ones show no fear.
Problem is, she doesn’t like loud or fidgety little anythings.
She does love the big guys though.
She thinks they’re all horses!
She is so very kind and mothering and will let us know if anyone is loose or lost.
Really, she whines and paces.
Last summer she befriended a young kitty. They were besties until Mean Old MR. rolled up the “Welcome. We feed hungry kitties” mat!
Here is a nice Mr.
Maybe he’s going to post a picture of that little guy to the www. I bet he’ll be back home with his master before you know it!
This MR. man looks nice too.
Seeee how he’s welcoming that sweet little Pug into his house?
This one knows she's not going far…
Walks are for exercise and for socializing right!
Then there are those who prefer to ride.
Ahhhh, meet Mr. Happy Go Lucky!
What do you want to bet his motto is…
Hey everyone sitting around the nice roaring fire!
That was great Mom. Thanks.
Here are a couple of wonderful books to give as gifts or enjoy by the fire when you and your best friend come in from a walk.
Before I close…

It’s a great place for all good blog dogs to come, sit & stay!
