There's No Place Like Home

I burned another vacation day in order to attend church yesterday. The rest of my "vacation" I spent at home with the puparoos. After church, the sun was actually shinning and nothing wet was falling from the sky! It was like a March miracle! I changed right away and took the dogs for Mister's longest walk to date. In fact, it was so warm we saw three motorcycles along the way. Awesome.

We walked for about 40 minutes or so. Mister was a trooper but I did have to pull him along a little bit. He wants to pee and sniff EVERY THING. Missy couldn't have been happier to be going for a long walk. The sidewalks are finally clear so we were able to go up the road instead of through the neighborhoods. Mister hasn't even been on that walk before. Missy just smiled big in-between barking at the motorcycles of course!

The best part was it tuckered them out pretty good and got them on a more manageable potty schedule for the rest of the day and into this morning. Sure, they still wrestled around as soon as their leashes were off. At one point I was on the phone with my mom and they were both in their beds, still play biting. They found away to play without moving anything but their heads! They're just like kids! It was pretty funny, but I was like guys don't fight it, just take a nap already. It was nice to have a little silence too.

The rain picked back up by that evening, which made me even more thankful I had the day off so I could walk them when it was nice. Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home with the dogs.
