Musing on Monday #15

"Lets go for a walk" - oh how we LOVE to hear those words BUT then the WAITING begins.

We bounce around all excited, giving off happy woofs, our tails thwapping anything and everything as they wag with anticipation, lots of excited whines and funny hurry up noises - come on then Mom..... lets go we are
ready......but nooooooo.

It goes like this ....first Mom needs to put her socks and shoes on, then she needs to tie back her hair because it is windy outside and of coarse Mom needs to make a 'to go' cup of tea. Come on woman what are we waiting for ????  And yet still the waiting goes on....... Mom needs to find the flashy beast (camera), mom needs to find the car keys. Mom needs to put our harnesses on.......and then 15 minutes later when she is FINALLY ready .......we are just about worn out from all the excited waiting !!!!

Does this happen to other pups too?  Why oh why can't we just go for a walk that very instant they say the magic words - that is what we want to know?

  1. Oh yessssss....this is very common in our house too. They get me all amped up to go somewhere and then I have to wait for them to get dressed, find the wallet, find the car keys, find the phone...etc...etc...SO UNJUST!

  2. No peeps goes out straight away as otherwise I bark the house down in eager anticipation. She gets everything ready in advance so it is a quick dash out. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  10. Oh, how we understand that whole process!!! Mom never even has to ask us if we want to go for a walk. As soon as we see her getting the sneakers in her paws, we all go nuts. Of course, then she can only take two at a time, so two of us have even longer to wait. But in the end it all works out and we get to go for those wonderful walks!!! But the waiting is tough

  13. You have hit the nail on the head! It takes them sooooooooo loooong. Now that it's getting colder here, it takes even longer. At least we haven't hit the hat and gloves stage yet.

    Is that a new morterboard hat? Or an old picture.

  14. Hi Reilly and Denny, 15 minutes!!! Gee that would be quick around here. My dad usually walks us on the weekends and he usually takes 20 - 30 minutes "to get ready". We don't bother getting up until he yells, "come on, let's go".

  15. I have to get ready first and hide Keltic's leash in my pockets. For some reason, the little pumpkinhead doesn't like to have his leash put on. He sure loves to go for walks though.

  16. She should wait to say it until she is ready put put a foot out the door. Of course for me, I know when we are going for a walk. MOM does not have to say anything, I just know it. ANd I spin once and sit next to the back door.
    Blessings,

  17. Oh yea Reilly. Katie does not get why it takes me so long to go. I have to put on shoes, and a coat and gloves and a hat and I have to pack her leash and her collar and her treats and some water..then find the car keyes...yep it takes forever! Sometimes I try to pack all the stuff before I tell her, but she's figured it out...and gets all excited anyway!

  18. OMD! Does it EVER!! Oh, furst it's the 'wait I have to go put on my jeans', then she has to gets my treat bag (don't mind that part!),then it's the harness, then it's the jacket,then it's the sunglasses, by now I'm hungry, so I have to have a kibble snack ~ THEN we can go! It's like, what ever happened to just snappin' on a lead and headin' out the door???!

  19. Your mom and I are very alike in this regard :). It takes me forever to get ready to head out to the barn in the morning and the dogs are just sooo annoyed by my slowness :)

  20. OH MY DOG!!! I know EXACTLY what you're talking about!

  21. Yes I agree! And then, you can't run around outside because you're tired from barking and wagging tails whilst you wait!
    And then they have to run back home to get the forgotten poo bags!

  22. Oh Reilly, going for a walk doesn't mean just a leash and a collar; we have to prepare so many things such as TREATS, WATER, MORE TREATS, poop bags, wet tissue, dry tissue, ..... then we need to put on our socks, shoes, a hat, a jacket.........there are just too many things to prepare and pack before going out for a walk.
