In training

Saturday, September 11, 2010 |
It was one of those perfect kinda days here in New England.
The weather is starting to cool off during the day and the nights are crisp which makes for sweet slumber.

Late this afternoon, I had the ingenious idea of taking Bentley and Bozley for a walk. Mind you, Bentley has had a collar on all of twice {for a very short period of time} and never with a leash attached.

What was I thinking?

They are bulldogs ... as in stubborn ... like a bull.


I'll give Bentley the benefit that we do have the longest driveway in our cul-de-sac  but seriously, it shouldn't take 20 minutes to get the bottom.

I lost count as to how many times we had to stop to

chew on the leash 
chase an acorn
hop on a leaf
chew on a stick 
sniff and lick a blade of grass.


This certainly wasn't the caloric reducing walk I had envisioned.


You know it's bad when Bozley looks at you and rolls his eyes.

But on the flip side, it certainly was entertaining!

Hope you had a relaxing, enjoyable and entertaining Saturday.

Hi Jo,

Love the sweet photos of you, Bozley and Bentley.
It won't be long and you will be all able to go on long walks together.

Happy weekend

What a lovely driveway though. You must feel like you are miles away from the madding crowd. Is school in session for you again? I can't wait to see your delicious recipes for the fall. :) xoxo

Your new BABY is absolutely ADORABLE! Love the funny posts about your puppies! We have a Greyhound (8 yrs.) and the little princess will still stiffin her legs and act like a complete donkey if she doesn't want to walk on the leash! :)

Oh my gosh! How cute are your doggies? I have a brindle boxer who I just love to pieces. I adore bulldogs too. Love their sweet little faces!
