Walking the Dog

The cooler fall weather has now come. Nights have been freezing. My problem is walking the dog. I walk the dog at 7:oo AM and the grass is wet. I walk the dog behind my house, in an area between my fence and a farmers field. This area is behind all the houses on this block and it leads to a soccer field at the school at the end of the block. I walk to the soccer field and around it twice and back to my house. My shoes got wet. I found a pair of old boots of my daughter but they have a whole in them, so I again got wet feet. I found my old boots and tried them they also did not keep out the water. I need to find a pair of comfortable boots that keep out water.
Winter is coming and that will bring more problems in walking the dog. I need a high boot that keeps out water and is warm. I will be beginning a search of the stores for this boot. I wonder if I can get the dog to use the tread mill solving the winter walking problem.

I would throw a ball around in the backyard since it is fenced in and she will get her exercise that way. I cannot bear to think of you walking the dog in the snow in the middle of winter.

Bbrrr. I can't stand wet feet. You need a Jetson treadmill for your dog.

I can relate so well. I have to walk my two dogs and frequently get wet feet. I can't walk them together cause one is old and slow and the other wants to go, go ,go. At least I have a street to walk in and the younger dog likes to occasionally poop there. I can't always walk them in the back of our place cause when it rains the little area behind the building becomes a lake.

You need a pair of Fisherman Sloshers. Or Waders I believe they are called.

You'll stay dry from the waist down. They should be on sale at your local Bass Pro Shop. End of season - they're making room for the hunting and ice fishin' gear.

My dog decided today that he needed to take a bath...while my six year old was in the tub.
