Ben taught me how to use....the choke chain.

current song: Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots pt.1

Maggie's leash.

She doesn't drag me so much anymore.

We walk.

She very nearly walks by my side.


So that....is how a leash works?

*head in hands*

She and I walked this morning......
She and I walked this evening.

In the morning I let the leash work.
Tonight I let it work against me.

We--I was dragged into the pond anyway.
Wet Maggie.
I wanted to show her the pond.
SHE wanted more--to show it to me.

I stayed dry, on the rocks in red velvet mary janes....tugging on a chain
against the wind that is Maggie.
Hopping rock to rock barking her name.

She flopped and barked back, made waves in the muck.
I hosed her down in the front yard when we returned home.

She grinned as the spray hit her, and danced around.
Closed her eyes and enjoyed it.

She and I have a lot to learn together--she's teaching me faster
than I am teaching her.

The dogs....and the dog walkers....are showing me where I am wrong.
We'll get there.

Several folks with their own animals--talked me and my bucking leashed beast...
into moments of calm.
I am still doing it wrong.

Everyone....four legs and two, seem very patient with me.

Though I can still hear them sigh when they walk away.

I'll get there, Girl.
I really will.

I want us to walk side by side.
You have so much to show me.

a few nights ago, maybe a week ago, I put my hand on the shoulder of a woman
at "THE SIDE BAR" and as she turned around I knew what I was going to say would
sound insane.

Are you Cowfish?

So I asked her: "Do you have a blog?"

She said she didn't, but that she was asked that quite a lot.

I told her she looked like a friend of mine who lived here in my Town,
who I had not even ever met in person.

We laughed.

Best story ever!
We should meet.

And I'm too young to get into bars, hah!

Cowgirl G

I thought that...but I wouldn't have ratted you out.

(though that IS my Friend's Tray and Sue's Bar, and I should...)

If you want to walk the dog and not the other way around, I highly recommend this nifty thing:
