Greg and I are dog sitting for our pastor and friend this week. I have never owned a dog so I wondered how it would work out – but it’s been amazing. Macy is a very sweet – but very active beagle.
Yesterday we took her for a long walk down by the Cedar River. In the car she was not always happy to be just in the back seat by herself – she would hop up on my lap and try to poke her face out my window! So cute – but she’s a heavy dog! She also did NOT like staying on the trail – but sniffed EVERYTHING and went wildly running with reckless abandon!! Because she is VERY STRONG Greg held her leash – after she about pulled my arm out! It was very interesting seeing how she interacted with other dogs on the trail – and how the other dogs did the same – no matter how well-trained they were.
After we got home – we were eating dinner on our back deck – with Macy tied up in the yard with a long lease. The little Chihuahua’s next door are quite BOSSY and were barking their “orders” to Macy from their backyard. Macy barked back. It was as if she was saying, “You’re NOT the boss of me!”
When was the last time you went on an adventure – or watched someone’s animal for them – only to learn something about them that was interesting and new?
When was the last time you barked to someone, “You’re NOT the boss of me”?
Here’s a picture of Macy
Enjoy and God Bless
