Well last night, we did it.  We braved it and took both dogs for a walk for the first time. Given Chloe's predilection for shenanigans, this was quite a risky thing to do.

Snarky things come in small packages.

We only went around the block, since a.) it was cold and I was wearing no coat b.) this was only the second time Chloe has walked on a leash and c.) our dogs have short legs and tire easily.

All in all, the walk went really well actually.  Chloe never fought the leash at all, other than to want to go faster.  She was not scared of cars much, which actually worries me a bit should she ever get loose, and she even took the opportunity to potty.  So all in all, we were really pleased.

Then when we got home, they wanted to run run run run run run run so we left them in the yard for a bit.

Apparently Dex is trying out for the track team, and needs to practice his hurdles.
All that fresh air and exercise really tired them out.  They were quiet all evening, and slept through the night.  For the first time ever, Hubby woke Chloe up this morning, usually it is the other way around.

Speaking of Hubby, read a funny tale he told about the pups here.

So, exercise and a good night's sleep.  Yay for walkies!
