Troublesome Tuesday - The Last 3 Dog Walk

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!

    Struth, that's enough excitement to raise the hackles!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. two is company 3 is a crowd ;O))) but I failed with "just" two... one thought the mailbox is a monster the other one liked it... think I have to look for shirts&jackets with eggs-tra long sleeves now... my arms are as long as a cargo train ;O))

  3. Hehe, you are keeping Lady well entertained on your walkies!

  4. Well if the Lady wants to have a boring life...

  5. That sounds like too much excitement for one walk. My mom would be doing exactly the same thing that Lady is doing!

  6. That sounds like it was quite an adventure.

  7. That sure sounds like a difficult way to walk. We're glad everyone made it back home safely. It's hard enough to walk one bouncy (Walter) dog we can't imagine having to walk more than one at a time.

  8. Lady thank goodness you do lots of physical training. I cannot imagine carrying a 16 lb pup while having Phod and Hailey on leads. You are very coordinated too
    Hugs Mom of Madi

  9. Um, we think your mom is smart not to try and walk all three of you anymore. What an adventure!

  10. We feel your pain guys...Our Mama made that same exact decision. Luckily, Daddy hasn't earn...I mean he still loves to take all three of us together!

  11. I hope the throwing up isn't anything serious.

  12. My momma has only had 2 of us at a time, but usually each of us have our own walker.

  13. Sounds like a regular Barnum and Bailey 3-ring circus! Glad everyone is safe even if there is a nose (or three) that's out of joint. 😍

  14. Never a dull moment around there with a three-way walk!

    Hugs, Teddy

  15. Your poor Lady! Mom remembers trying to walk 3 dogs in the country. Between the deer and the wildlife it is always an adventure!

  16. This was good for me to read since I've recently been dreaming of a third dog! I do remember from when we had 3 dogs in the past having walks like your "walk from hell"!
