I came home from work early today since I have to work on Saturday and must comp my time - I'm not allowed to get overtime. So on this beautiful sunny day I came home and did my taxes. After 3 stressful hours hunched over the computer I decided to take the two dogs for a little walk. I needed to relieve some stress and they needed to quit bugging me before I killed them both.
So I hooked them up to leashes and we headed down the street to this little park with a trail through the woods. At one end is a small lake where the trail turns. That's where I turned around a came back. You can probably see from the glare on the path how slippery it was.
Here the dogs are practicing a sit, stay command. They did not do very well. I give Taz an F- and Roxy gets a C, just barely acceptable!
I really need to work with them both on leash training. We don't do much walking on a leash because we have a fenced back yard and they run around in that or we take them to the cabin where they run free.
Note to self: 1. Move away from this land of ice and snow. 2. Take the dogs one at a time the next time we go for a "fun" walk. 3. Do not attempt to do taxes in the same house with whiny dogs.
