Something you don't want to do while walking these dogs.....but I did.
We were going happily along down the sidewalk this morning when up ahead I see a man walking his two little dachshunds. At the same time I accidentally step on a large rock lying on the sidewalk and manage to twist my ankle. By painfully crab walking I get the dogs to the other side of the street where I try to take a breather as Bruno and Scarface attempt to introduce their idea of friendliness to the two little wiener dogs. It wasn't fun. Then a bicyclist came around the corner, barely avoiding Scarface, who I've decided has way too long a leash.
I gave my ankle a little recuperation time and feeling sorry for Scarface and Bruno, as our walk had barely begun, we set off again. We didn't make it too far. One more detour to avoid another dog walker and it's homeward bound.
My ankle is swollen and sore. I'm walking with a major limp. There will be no more dog walks during my tour of babysitting I'm afraid.
I do have this afternoon to look forward to as I will drive across town to visit our baby chicks. Can't wait to see them.
Later this evening my daughter Vanessa is showing some of her artwork at First Thursday. I'll be there to offer support. She'll be doing some actual painting while she's there. It's a monthly event in downtown Boise which "focuses on providing downtown visitors the chance to stroll through the unique shops and galleries in downtown, while enjoying in-store entertainment and special events. "
I'll post again later.
