It is just too much trouble â€“ not the dog, mind you â€“ Yoshi is awesome on a leash. I taught him early and he is very controllable.
But as we walked through an alley we walk through often there was a lady in the garage with the garage door open, and a little bitty â€œyippyâ€ dog. She was smoking a cigarette â€“ the dog was doing dog stuff.
But just as we passed the home the outdoor floodlight lamp exploded â€“ it was a loud boom, with a lot of flying glass.
I called out, asking if she was ok (since the circuit blew and the garage lights had also gone out).
â€œWhat did you do?!?!â€ she hollered.
â€œNothing â€“ I am just walking my dogâ€, I replied.
â€œDo you have a BB-gun?â€ she asked.
â€œNo â€“ just walking my dogâ€, I answer. And I keep walking.
I expect the police to show up at any time because â€“ well, they sometime gravitate towards me. But they did not, and Yoshi and I made it home safely.
But that is two night is a row that walking my dog causes unusual questions.
So I think Yoshi will self-exercise in the back yard. It is 3/4 acre, so it should be sufficient. He will miss the neighborhood cats though. Except for the random stupid ones that come into the back yard.
