I learned two things on my walk yesterday. Miles is not the type of dog who is great on a leash. I knew this before, but it really struck me yesterday. If he sees a squirrel, a bird, or a leaf blowing he’s off like a shot, ripping my shoulder out of place. He has to be a leash since he’s not great at coming back in a timely manner. Or he’ll get close enough and then dart away. He loves that game. Those who are watching also get a kick out of it. I don’t.
Second, I’m not a dedicated reader. I thought I was. I read whenever I can. But not once have I considered reading a book while walking my dog. This guy not only has a well-behaved dog on a leash, but he’s reading a book. Does he ever trip and fall down? I would.
