Coupler

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  We've been having some of what our mom calls "really nice weather" lately (60s and 70s, lots of sun) and whereas Maggie and I might prefer 20 degrees with snow, Mom thinks this is perfect walking weather.  Go figure.

Lately, Dad's been golfing in the mornings, so it's just us girls, then all of us go again in the afternoon.  When we walk with just Mom, she hooks us up to her hands-free belt and we go, go, go!

  Sometimes, we even trot a bit.  We also have to stop and do poses:

Maggie and me by the Kansas Ocean

That's a lot of work, of course.  You know - posing.  Anyway ...

In an effort to keep Maggie on the path, rather than seeing what she can snarf in the tall grass, and to allegedly prevent someone else from shilly-shallying (who is NOT really shilly-shallying, she's doing VERY important stuff, thankyouverymuch!), Mom came up with this crazy idea to use a carabiner clip to "couple" us together.

"Oh... this is going to be fun!  Let's GO!!!"
"Hello ... Maggie!"

Now she only clips us together after we're a bit tired.  She learned that after her first attempt.  Do you recognize the look I'm giving Mags?  (Click here.)  Have I mentioned Mom doesn't appreciate it when we break into Crazed River Otter Games if it's just the three of us?  Oh.  Right. She also learned she can quickly remove the carabiner and put Mags -- I mean "someone" -- on a short lead, if need be.  

Is the weather biped-nice where you are now?  Are you getting out and enjoying it?

Cammie!

  6. Good afternoon my friends! We've had wonderful weather this week as well and hope that the cold front doesn't show up this weekend. My hubby is golfing so much more, even as I speak so I walk with friends. Hope you have a great evening.

Mom said once she was walking two of my sibs who are at the Bridge on one of those two leashes become one thingies, and they saw something behind her and ran toward it and totally swept mom's leggies out from under her!! BOL!!!

  13. OMD, you gurls have the coolest accessories!!! Ma was thinkin' abouts getting one of those 'handless leads' that go around a peeps waist...then she remembered that I likes to lunge at tree rats, cats, and any doggie that calls my arse fat! So, I guess that was a 'no'. hehehe
    Oh, the carabiner!! Ma has LOTS of those! She seems to thinks that they are the only thing that can keep my harness secure...you see, I kinda am a collar/harness escape artist! BOL! Anyhu, she loves those thingies. She has the 'locking' ones too. I don't know why...
    Okays, Ma says enough of my rambling, I wants to tell you gurls that you look FABulous, and I totally approve of shilly-shallying!!!
    Kisses,
    Ruby ♥

  15. I love going along on your walks! You both pose very well, by the way, and it IS work. I hope you get paid. :-) We have been gray and rainy for most of the week in Virginia. I think the sun is supposed to appear tomorrow. We'll see.

  17. What a good idea your mom had with the carabiner!
    Too bad for her that you are so smart to fall for this for long!
