|The mug shots!|
Several weeks ago, on a Thursday, we had a walk that went like this:
First Lee got very excited and was pulling because she thought there was an animal in the neighbours driveway. Turns out it was just some garbage bags (bags are uncommon out here as we are to have our garbage in containers as the animals get into the bags).
Then some puppies lost their mind at the raven sitting on a lawn.
Then we saw some deer.
Then on our very favourite road, there was something moving up a driveway, for real. It was a porcupine. We were about 30 feet from it and it was slowly moving up the driveway and Lady did an about face and made us go the other way. She said there was no way we were going to get any closer and no good would come from meeting it.
Then Emma started to throw up. Lady isn't sure if it was from all the grass she ate or if she was just too excited or if there was too much pulling.
Then Emma refused to walk so Lady had to try and carry all 16 lbs of her while walking us.
Then there was a big black dog off leash running around. Luckily it didn't come near us, but Lady made us turn around and not go to sniff our favourite mailbox.
We kept tripping Lady as she was walking carrying Emma and trying to hold our leashes.
Emma kept growling at Lady because she didn't like the way she was being carried.
Somehow we all made it home in one piece.
Since that day, Lady has not taken all 3 of us on a big morning walk. Emma has to sit out. Lady says it is not safe.
We think she just doesn't know how to have fun!
