Even though they all want to go first, I walk the dogs in the same order, so there is no misunderstanding between the dogs. Brut is always first, then Zappa, Fiona and Silver follow.
Each time we go, the dogs seem to be going at a steady pace. Not like it was when I first started and everyone was so excited that I could hardly keep up with them. We are getting into a routine. Although, I don't know who gets more excited, them or me.
Well Brut was in a really grand mood as we began our journey today. As always he went at his steady pace making his mark every ten to fifteen paces. Only this time it was more like making a little musical. Every time Brut made his mark, he did his "four on the floor" (scraping the ground with all paws) then grabbed a mouthful of snow and he was on the move again. He did this over and over again, for the entire 45 minute walk. It was a song in the making:
Brut's four on the floor
Eat some snow
Come on Daddy
Let's go some more
The next time I take Brut I'm going to take my tape recorder and get it down, because we were rocking around that block!!
After all the dog walks are over, both Daddy dogs lay down for a nap.
