Evening Walks

Hello again, friends!  Look who’s blogging again like a good girl!  I keep my promises. :)

Diesel usually gets 2 walks a day.  One in the morning with me, since he wakes me up at 5am and I figure I have nothing better to do than take him for a walk, and one in the evening with both Jerm and me.  The other night I decided that I was going to bring the camera and take some “action shots” of our walk.

We have a very active and friendly neighborhood, so people are always out walking their dogs or playing with them in the park.  Over the past few months, people have begun to recognize us and some like to come up, pet Diesel and tell us how pretty he is.

Good boy, sit down!  (We make him sit before crossing the street)

Diesel has gotten a lot better at walking since he was a puppy, and I credit most of that to the harness that we got him.  He used to just attach his leash to his collar, but he would pull and tug to the point where he was making it hard for himself to breath.  So, we bought a “Gentle Leader” harness and our walks are smooth sailing now.

Hi, I’m Diesel.

He’s possessed. (dang, that flash on the camera)

While walking this past week, we came across some wet cement that didn’t have a sign or barrier or anything near it.  Isn’t that stupid?  If I were a construction worker, who just poured wet cement, I would try to make sure that no one messed it up.  Apparently, that’s just me though because there is now a piece of cement in our neighborhood that has the imprint of Jeremy’s flip flop, my Adidas and Diesel’s paws.

As our walk concluded, we  got near a house that we walk by all the time.  We’ve seen the lady in her yard and looking out her kitchen window before.  Well, she saw the flash of the camera as I was taking a picture of Diesel and then she came out and asked if I wanted a picture of the three of us.  Sure!  See, people in our neighborhood are SO nice, aren’t they?  Thank you, nice neighbor lady!

What sweet neighbors you have!! I'd come over to pet Diesel too, he's such a handsome boy with his super shiny coat and sweet doggie eyes.
