Out for a walk!

At 9am on a Sunday morning things are pretty quiet, so I leashed up Rocky and we took a short walk over our old and familiar route.  It is so familiar that when we got to a particular spot Rocky sat in his good dog pose and waited for his treat!  This is where I always gave him a treat and told him what a good boy he is.  lt felt so good to be out in the fresh air again, although I was not comfortable with myself or my footing.  With only one good hand I made up my mind that if Rocky tried to bolt towards another dog, I wouldn't try to stop him.  Fortunately he was very good!

Jeannie came by to walk Rocky this afternoon so he got some good exercise today.  I can't let her know that I took him for a brief walk earlier.

I am sick and tired of this whole situation, quarantine, etc., and I'm sure most of you are tired of it as well.  I'll just plod through however, but it's difficult when I realize I don't have that many years left if times are good, and they sure aren't all that good these days.

Poor Rocky is really suffering the changes in life right now.


  1. Great that you were able to have a walk. I can imagine how hard it is for you to stay at home. Too bad you dislike your computer, that would be a good diversion. Poor Rocky too. Keep your spirits up!!

  2. Glad you were able to get out for a walk to ease the Cabin Fever. Teaching Rocky the word "No" might help stop him from charging off to see other dogs or jumping on people. Rolled news papers make a sound that is threatening without causing harm. When he behaves to that give him another treat.
    Be Safe and Enjoy the changing seasons ahead.

    It's about time.
