The puppies are fast catching on to the idea of daily walks at the park. Molly never was a big car fan. She was always anxious, when she got in for a ride and only after us picking her up and putting her inside. After 4 days of walks, she's already connected the car with a good thing. Now, when we go out with her she just hops up into the car, ready to go. On Wednesday, we bought some new puppy walking equipment. Molly was so bad to get her leash tangled with Shingo's, that we bought them a coupler. Casey and I used it for the first time yesterday. They both did really well. Molly tired out a little faster, because her pace is somewhat faster than Shingo's, (and he's no little guy with his winter pounds added on) and she was trying to drag him at times. She was tired after about 1.5 miles yesterday, where she usually walks about 3 miles on her own. The coupler definitely made a difference. We're hoping to get another walk in tonight, but I'm not sure. We need to get a new tire for the car, and we have a gardening club meeting around 6:30. We may just have to skip today. We'll see.
