With shorter days in winter a lot of our walks take place in the dark. Last month many of the houses were decorated for Christmas. In most instances the decorations were lit up and we passed the houses without incident.
One night we passed a house with Rudolph in the yard, except this night Rudolph wasn’t lit up. Which caused Miss Delilah to approach cautiously a low growl in her throat. It took me a second to make out what she was growling at in the dark.
And then I giggled all the way home.
And speaking of Delilah.
There’s this one particular house we pass with two dogs. These dogs are contained by an electric fence. One of the dogs is very quiet and just watches us as we pass, BUT the other one likes to posture and run along the yard as we walk by. This of course gets Delilah all kinds of riled up. Her posture says, “You want this? You want a piece of me?”
I usually shorten her leash and try to distract her when those dogs are NOT out, so she gets used to walking by without trying to drag me into their yard.
One lovely weekend day when we had mad amounts of snow, Delilah was determined to get into that yard. She even tried scaling a snowbank to get there.
When two blog hops collide
You’ve heard the saying, “When two worlds collide?” Well what happens when two blog hops collide? Come back tomorrow for all the dirty deets.
That’s it for me, join me tomorrow for Follow-Up Friday, when I highlight some comments, answer some questions and wrap up my week!
Many thanks to our hop hosts!
