i'm used to walking him - he gets a minimum two walks a day bec he's such a high-energy dog (70lb border collie cross) but i was all set to have a nice cup of tea and a hot bath after a rough day at work. i work at a bookshop - inventory - all day long, "pick the box up onto the table... count the books out of the box.... count the books into the box.... put the box back onto the floor". each box weighs anywhere from 25 to 40lbs, depending if it's paperbacks or coffee-table type books so yeah - my biceps, traps, delts, lats, erector spinae, glutes, and hams take a thumping.
but it's okay - it was an AWESOME walk!
first off, he was off-leash 80% of the time and he stayed with me! even after i said "go play!", he would shoot off like a bullet but when i called him, he came back right away. he sat on command when he reached the end of the boardwalk and even when i started walking back, he stayed sitting until i gave him the command to come to heel, which he did perfectly.
if hot dogs are doggie crack, bacon must be doggie ecstasy.
this is really superficial of me but one of the highlights of the walk was the boardwalk. it's not lit so for the first stretch, you're backlit from the streetlights.
i was listening to DJ Mad's station on Live365 - techno - and walking to the beat, dandy moving along beside me and i my shadow looked *wicked* awesome: i was six feet two inches tall, weighed 138lbs, and was clearly strutting the catwalk at one of the more avant garde fashion shows with a wolf as an accessory, lol.
