I’ve been a good girl last week few week as I took my dogs out for a walk. I hardly walk my dogs. I think having my first dog till now, I’ve walked them about 25 times, the most (after 5-6 years). When I first had Lilo, I did take her out for a walk without a lash. She just followed where I go & every-time she is either ahead or behind me within a distance, I’ll just call her and she will come running back to me.
I don’t walk them now is because there are too many cars, walkers or jogger. Not sure what has got into me, I’ve starter walking them back since last week and they enjoyed it & always looking forward. You can see them getting excited once I take their collars out. One thing I don’t like to take my dog for a walk is they poo at the wrong place.
The first 2 dags I walked was Maya & Angel, after such a long time. Over excited, Angel poos in front of a house. As you see, we Malaysian are not used to carrying disposable stuffs. I was so embarrassed & dumbfound. Lucky no one saw us. I quickly pulled both of them away as I do not know what to do. Shall I walk home & take some newspaper plus plastic bags to clean up? Even if I clean up, will the owner hates or yelled at me?
I decided to walk away and scolding Angel for simply doing her business at others people house. Anyway, I took Maya & Belle out for a walk again 2 days later. As we walked, both of them behaves so well. So, I decided to drop by at the park for a swing or rest. As we just enter the park (walking the pavement), Maya suddenly stopped & do her business. Oh gosh…..why are they doing this to me? This time, I wasn’t sure if anyone saw us or not as there were 2 adults & 2 children playing.
Again, I was stunned. I do not know if I continue entering the park or walk out. I paused for a while & decided to send them home. As we walked, we have crossed another dogs boundaries. The dog was barking & was on loose. I quickly pull them and use another routine to return home as I do not want my dogs to have a fight.
I told all 4 of them, no more walking until the behaves. I stopped walking them for about 2-3 days as it rainned and not because I want to punish them. Then I took them out again. This time, Pat helps me to walk the other 2 & we walked 4 of them.
All 4 of them behaved very well. No doing business at the wrong place and it was a smooth journey except Maya keeps chewing the plant or the grass (her bad habits). Crossing other dogs territory & barking at us (manage to cross on time). It was a safe walking but somehow, unlucky for the dogs as it rained this few days. Can’t walk them.
