Once upon a time, there were two friends that lived in Illinois. One day, one of the friends moved to Texas. The friends missed each other terribly and needed a place to chatter about everyday happenings in their lives and be able to share their passion for crafting. That is how this blog came to fruition! Follow these crazy, crafty friends as they open up their lives to the world.
Since moving to TeXas I have been trying to walk Gunner more often. For those of you who know my dog is a pretty bad walker. The second he goes outside he becomes jojo the idiot boy and takes off at 100MPH with your arm attached to him.
Needless to say we have tried many ways to help him get under control when he walks. Yes you can guess it he still takes your arm off. I don't know what it is with him but UGH REALLY!!!
I felt bad for our oldest son who one day wanted to walk GunneR. He comes back in the house just a few minutes later with grass stains all down the front of him. UGH what happened?? "Gunner took me for a pull along the Grass."
Could you walk like all the other NORMAL dogs that I see with their owners. Nice Leisurely not wanting to rip my arm off the ENTIRE walk!!! Look out if there is another dog in the vicinity you are pretty much ScreweD. Stop and braise yourself because Gunner is looking to get in the grass to really dig in and get running. People will walk to the other side of the street because he looks like he wants to EAT you.
I have to share todays walk because it was amusing. I just got back from BooT CamP kicking my butt and legs for an hour. Sorry Gunner we are pretty much going around the block today. It is a very LARGE block because everything is BiGGer in TeXas. As we were tooling around we were sprayed by sprinklers to cool off. Both Gunner and I liked this.
As we were getting close to the turn we approach a lady (homeowner) talking to what appeared to be a landscaper in the street. Me and Gunner do de do de just trucking along till WhaP...I get pulled back to Gunner Relieving/Marking on this ladies front bush. UGH Really Gunner?? As I yank him and tell him to ComE she goes silent from YAPPING with the landscaper. Then she proceeds to say "Well NOW I know why my BusH is Dying over here." Really?? Way to go GUnneR get us busted and that is the first time you have Relieved your self on her BUSH. LOL Sorry LaDy I can't help when my dog decides to Pee. But we may be back for that comment. hahah Just Kidding. Maybe
Now I am a dog owner that NEVER leaves my house with out an arsenal of Poo bags. I can not tell you how BIG of a pet peeve it is of mine that people just leave there dogs poop where ever and not pick it up. REALLY?? You know your dog is going to POO so Bring a Bag and PICK IT UP.
When living in Illinois we backed up to a field and path...I can not tell you how many people I yelled out of my house "Do you need a bag for that??"
As we turn the corner I am relieved that he did not decide to take a poop on her front lawn. tehe te he.
Now look out the poor landscaper had his head covered with a bandanna to cover the back of his neck. Well Gunner does not like this, hair on the back of the neck sticking up and barking like crazy. UGH Gunner Really? Now what is the most amusing is the guy pushing the lawn mower just ahead of us has just seen this take place. He is now as far to the left he can get on the other side of the lawn mower looking like he is scared to death of Gunner. Really??? Does he look that scary? As we walk by he says "Nice Doggie?" I am laughing really GUnner???
Mind you we are just walking around the block which is really not that far.
As we head around the next turn we are tooling down the street heading for home. Its time for Gunner to do his "thing" and I have my arsenal of poop bags. As I am using them a woman walks across the street ahead of us with two little white dogs. UGH WhaP there goes my arm as I am trying to pick up the PooP. UGH Really Gunner? He is barking and digging his paws into the side walk trying to do the Running Man because...HELLO GUnneR you are still attached to my ARM.
Now I have to stop and hold him here for a bit so the woman and her dogs. Who by the way are walking like they don't have a care in the world. Not even noticing that my dog is going Nut Zo back here trying to get your attention. Seriously...I just want to get home...the lactic acid from my work out is making me more sore as we speak. Finally they are far enough for us to get going...lets get home before something else CraZy happens.
At the EnD of the DaY...we love Gunner even though my right arm is now a few inches longer than the left from all the pulling. ~Kim from TeXas Gunners question of the day to his Doggie Friends out there...What is your favorite dog treat? Gunner Said his is a Bully Stick.
Leave him a comment from your dog letting him know what their favorite treat is.
