Poor Mom Was Sooo Frazzled

Now as you know - I am the PERFECT dog. I walk nicely when we go to the park, I don't bark at other doggies and I generally just do my own thing - which of coarse involves a lot of sniffing. So what was the Mom thinking this morning when she took ALL 3 of us to the park??? Now I am not bemoaning about the park - it is the first time in weeks it has been cool enough for us to go - but to take an untrained puppy (Denny), the psycho walker (Jackson) and perfect me was quite a handful - to say the least.

Silly Mom thought it would help to have me and "IT" on one of those double walker leads - BIG MISTAKE. "IT" is a weaver - he weaves back and forth, runs under me, around me, in front of me and being on a double walker - that means I get all tied up. "IT" also has very very poor doggie skills and will go psycho when he sees another dog - which means more getting tangled up. I am VERY pleased to say "THING" (I may have to consider calling him Denny after this) walked perfectly - which considering it's the first time he has had a lead on - was AMAZING. Mom was very proud of the little guy.

Both Mom and I were a bit saddened to see that the park is no longer green - but after two + months of 90+ degree and no rain - it is to be expected. Not that I really cared - I just wanted to sniff and my dogness there were so many great smells! And so we ATTEMPTED to walk - with "IT" weaving every which way and getting me and even Mom all tangled up and even getting tangled up with the trees!! Poor Mom was so frazzled by time we headed back to the car I thought she was going to throw "IT" in the lake and drive off - forever leaving stories of the "IT" lake monster at Craighead Forest Park. She didn't of coarse but vowed not to take all three of us again by herself. It looks like we might have another cool day this weekend and she says Dad HAS TO take the "IT".

So that was our big adventure and it sure was great to get out (even if it was stressful) and now the Denny knows why we were soooooo excited when Mom said the magic word - P-A-R-K.


  1. P-A-R-K is definitely a special word! Glad you were able to go and have fun!

  2. Your mom is very brave to tackle taking all 3 of you to the park! Sorry IT kind of ruined the day for you but what can you expect from an IT - LOL!

  3. Ha - Mom used to walk three at a time, but after she fell last fall, she is back to two at a time. All four of us can go if Dad is with us. She never uses those flexileads, too hard to control the dogs AND hold onto those bulky handles. We have six foot leather leashes that she has tied knots in to shorten a bit and the knots also give her something to use as a stopper for her hand if she wants to grip the leash to make it shorter.

    We hope you can still get to go to the park. Maybe once "IT" is gone to Nebraska. Our little guy walks pretty well on a leash too, but Mom says she bets he will start pulling soon.

  4. IT looks like a very small stuffed collie in the first picture - very cute! Hopefully he will soon outgrow this stage.


  5. Your Mom is a Brave Little Toaster! I dunno if my Mom would be brave enough to take 3 pups to the park - even if one of them is prfect like you!

  6. So glad that Denny did so well on the leash!!! That means you will have lots and lots of enjoyable times ahead with him!!! Way to go Denny!

    Puppy Kisses,

  7. You have been a good influence on Denny even if you don't want to admit to it.

  8. Glad you guys had a great time. Your mom sure is brave to try 3 at once. My mom gets a mess when she has more than one leash at a time.

  9. Wow you are brave to take them all at the same time, esp with a puppy. LOL sorry it wasnt peaceful! Its still green here but when you walk at the park it looks like fall. Dead leaves all over the ground. I guess there just hasnt been enough rain fall. Sad.

  10. BOL... yep, your mom is a brave one!!

  11. That must have been a nightmare to have IT fastened to you and all squirming about. How did you maintain your composure?


  12. three dogs at once? Your mom is CRAZY! Glad it worked out as well as it did. I think three dogs require at least two adults! LOL!!

  13. We love our Dog Park. Not many other parks we can go to in Key West area.

    The though with your Mum with all three of you. Well, BOL.

  14. You need another peep or two...heehee! No way just one of our peeps would take us both out on a good would come of it!!

  15. Our mom thought about those double walker leads at one time and figured she'd get killed if she ever tried it! Your mom is very brave, Reilly! Denny is one smart boy!

    Love ya lots

  16. That must have been quite the sight to see for fellow park guests!

    Hope your next trip is a bit more uneventful.

  17. OOOH, would love to go to the park, but it's so darn hot! Nala and I tangle very easily -- and we're just TWO doggies! Teehee!

    Happy Friday woofs & hugs <3,

  18. "IT" makes walkies quite interesting :P Too funny!

    Glad it was cool enough for all of you to get out and about :)

    Waggin at ya,


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
