It’s a dreary day today. The skies are grey and murky. The air is heavy with humidity. The barometric pressure is making me and the dogs a little draggy. No photograph from me to share with you today. We’ve all seen blah days like this. Why overemphasize it?
So — how about a positive and fun story from me instead?
I noticed that today is National Dog Day, and I have a dog tale.
When I take one of my dogs for a walk, he pulls on his leash as if he is towing a block of stone for the Great Pyramid of Giza. Oftentimes, he pulls with so much gusto, he becomes bipedal. He gags and chokes and walks on his hind legs for several feet with all the grace of Monty Python’s silly walk.
This problem was solved when I fitted him with a fashionable brown leather harness. He took to it right away, and walking with him is now a pleasure. It’s more of a side-by-side stroll and less of a contest to see how hard he can pull on his collar.
I used to dread walks with him. Now it’s pleasant.
