My day with Charlie
I had a pretty eventful Saturday with Charlie the Goldendoodle. Charlie is my in-laws super adorable dog who I have become very fond of. He is playful, funny, oblivious, and a big wimp. On Saturday while visiting my in-laws I decided to take him for a walk around the block. Well to my dismay this would be no ordinary walk, this would be a walk for the books.
We started walking like normal when half way down the block I hear some loud barking coming from one of the houses. I try to see what it is and to my surprise it was a small German Shepherd barking at some dogs. I quickly decided to turn back before the loose dog saw Charlie but it was too late! He spotted him. So we are staring down with this dog 20 feet away and my adrenaline starts running. I start thinking about Charlie and how sad everyone will be if he gets killed. So as the dog is approaching him I quickly get in front of him and yell: "No, stop, stay." In my loudest, harshest tone, while standing as big as I could. And what do you know, the dog backs down. So I quickly grab Charlie and jet for home. Meanwhile Charlie has no idea what just happened he decides to stop and pee on a tree. So now I am on high alert! Out of the corner of my eye I see a pit bull that is also out. I know what you're thinking. What are the chances? That is exactly what I was thinking! We didn't even make it to the end of the block and we saw two loose dogs.
So the pit bull of course quickly spots Charlie and starts running towards him. I decided to try the same method... no luck the dog is still coming. So I quickly let go of his leash and yell: "Run home Charlie". Which he does and to which the pit bull decides to follow. So here I am chasing a pit bull, who is chasing Charlie, who is running home. Then the Pit bull owner starts yelling at the dog to come over, the dog listens and now Charlie is following the pit bull. I talk to the owner who told me that dog is harmless and just looks mean. I was relieved and glad that was over. Needless to say I'm never taking Charlie on a walk again.
I also killed two spider this weekend after going shooting with my husband. If you know me you know that killing to spiders is huge for me. My husband says I'm turning into a bad""". I kind of am, next on my list is riding my husbands Harley (ha).
