Born to Run

We've had to head out of the house a lot lately so that strangers can come in.  The whole process is really kind of strange.  The boss man vacuums and dusts and hides our blankets for about an hour and then we all head out and walk for an hour and a half or so.  The walk is fun but the rest is not.

At any rate, today they decided to try something new.  We all went jogging together.  We have a split leash that we don't usually use, so each boss could carry just one leash.  I started out tethered to Spring, but she was channeling a malamute or something and dragging me along so the bosses swapped me and Lyle.  I guess they thought that Lyle would more ballast and Spring wouldn't pull so hard.  Instead Lyle and Spring were canine nunchakus banging against each other.  Talk about a dangerous weapon.

In case you're wondering about Lyle's attitude problem, I haven't made much progress.  I don't think he's going to be very receptive to psychoanalysis.  I was able to get him to lie down on the couch once but I couldn't get him to talk about his mother.  I'm going to have to try another approach.  He's a tough nut.
