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?
