My dad has been feeling a bit under the weather lately, so we have taken to walking his dog for him.
His dog is a white, short haired Jack Russell terrier called Spot. He is a fun little dog, who seems to enjoy his walks in the fields with Custard. We don't let them run loose, but have them on those extending leads that wind back in automatically.
Normally, Mrs RC and I take one each when we go out, but when one of us has to do it things can get quite entertaining, as they often decide that the most exciting sniffs are in opposite directions. Mrs RC says that when this happens she feels like Spiderman.
Last night I had to walk them on my own.
Hm, Spiderman, eh? I wonder if you could do it for real, swinging along streets, with dogs on leads? Maybe if you had a pair of bull terriers (or maybe Boston Terriers if you were fairly light?), you could hurl them up so they grapped onto something with their teeth, so you could swing on them? Then, once the second one had a grip the first would let go ready to grab hold of something else? Interesting idea, don't you think?
Better go now, before you get too worried about me!
Happy 4th of July, everyone!
