Mercy loves walks- don’t most dogs? As my pregnancy has progressed, I have been taking longer walks since I haven’t been able to go to the gym, making Mercy the happiest camper around.
This time of year is one of her favorites because the squirrels are going crazy trying to store up nuts for the winter, and she LOVES to chase them.
On our walk yesterday, I was having a tough time holding on to zee-pooper-bags. I had them in my pocket, but my workout pants fit really wierd right now, having to wear them super low on my waist because of my enormous preggo belly. The bags kept falling out of my pocket. I caught them a few times, but lo and behold, when Mercy decided that it was “time”, the bags were gone. Even though we had seen virtually no people on our walk, as soon as I found myself in this predicament, there were people, just waiting to see if I would pick it up or leave it for some poor soul to step in.
UGH! What to do! Fortunately I was about 200 yards away from a bike path entrance where they have a “Doggie Depot” spot. I hoofed it over there and grabbed a couple bags, tying the extra ones to the leash. Really, I’m a responsible dog owner, I promise!
For something so small, she sure causes a ruckus sometimes.
