With Sarah working, and me not, I have become both Keeper of the Flat (aka House Husband) and de facto dog walker. I get up when Sarah does, and while she gets ready for work, I take the dogs out for their morning walk, feed them and then have breakfast with Sarah before she has to run. I take the dogs out individually, mostly because they are difficult for one person to control, but also because they seem to do their Duty faster when their colleague is not around. And with winter approaching, getting them to go quickly is a good idea.
Today I had the pleasure of running into two local bloggers while on the individual walks. When I was walking Haley I bumped into JDS, and later while walking Mickey I met Morgan. Both apparently recognized the dogs first and then asked me if I was the guy behind this website. I must admit I was surprised it took so long for us to run into other locals who maintain websites, but it was neat to run into two people 30 minutes, or so, apart.
Hopefully, with Cathy’s help, there will be an area meetup in the next month or so, but in the meantime, please feel free to stop me—and whatever dog I have in tow—and say hi. As JDS and Morgan can attest, none of us bite.
