Does anyone else ponder life the universe and everything while out walking their greyhound?

This morning I wondered how many miles each year I walked with Grace in one hand and a bag of dog poo in the other? :dunno

And.... are the areas of grass that are the greenest that way because dogs wee on them or is it because they are greenest is the reason they get weed on?:dunno

Poppy is also a great listener to my dissertations on life, the universe, and everything and......FOXY! Tally-HO!

On our late pre-bed wee-wee walk, is saw two gleaming eyes in my headlamp range. Approaching nearer, it was a large male fox calmly lying down and watching us. at about ten feet Poppy was trying to go into heat seeking missile mode, radar locking on, with me trying to not have my arm wrenched out of its socket. Mr. Renard casually moved another 10 feet to the left and lay down again, watching us. After dragging Her Highness past the chase toy, with only one strangled bark, we proceeded up the hill. On our return Mr. Fox was STILL there, back where we originally saw him. Lying in the exact same spot just behind our communal lounge area (which is shut down due to coronavirus).  He finally trotted calmly thru the barbed wire fence border into the pasture next door. (We generally see around 6 sets of eyeballs from the resident foxes in the pasture at night. They usually stay at least 20-30 feet away staring at us.)

My thoughts are not as profound as you lot. I generally think about how I would spend my time if I won the lottery (which is, not working and stroking my dog. Occasionally baking treats for him and for me).

Obsessive-compulsive thoughts here -- Will dogs' # of pees-per-walk equal their lifetime average?  What is typical gallon/liter bladder capacity of an adult male greyhound?  Is a walk down both sides of a street, which is visually boring to me, completely different on each side to the dogs because of the different smells?  Why must dogs always want to pee/poop on the yard of someone who is outside, looking at us?  Will Jeter start to pant if it reaches 74F on this morning's walk?

Something I was pondering for the umpteenth time on a dog walk yesterday. :rofl

Kendra, devoted walker of Lucia (Larking About x Anastasia) and her son Henry (Tom Jones: Great Son x Lucia).

Missing Badger (Vf Get R Done: Quicksand Slip x Ll Tee el See), 5/7/04 - 2/20/14, who opened our hearts and our home to greyhounds,
    Kenzie (Slatex Kenzie: Randy Handy x Slatex Chrisy), 4/16/03 - 10/29/14, who really knew what a good dog she was,
    and Falcon (Atascocita Sabat: Dodgem by Design x Atascocita Barb), 9/13/10 - 1/31/20, who was grumpy and snarky but eventually a little bit cuddly, too.

If Chancey wees on my grass it immediately goes brown. The grass at the end of the road stays more or less green despite one or both of mine using it - why?

Then they see the cat that lives nearly opposite and I’m hanging on to two leads for dear life trying to keep two screaming banshees under control.

My thoughts (in no particular order):

  • My next lecture (I'm a college prof)
  • My "problem child" students
  • My "problem child" faculty
  • Just how many times are you going to pee?!?!
  • My "problem child" dean
  • Three poops?  Really?!
  • What to make for dinner
  • Another Pee?  You're just squeezing it out, aren't you?
  • Look, neighbors!  I am carrying a poop bag.  That means I'm not the neighbor you're mad at.
  • Really?  That pee was 3 drops.  This is absurd
  • Uh oh! ankle biter on a flexi leash.  Come on, Merc, we're turning around.

Yes, even though I had a man accuse me of not picking up after my dogs when I had two full poop bags to wave at him!

....and me. I had to explain to him the difference between how male and female dogs pee. I also offered him a bag of poo which he declined. Pity really because I have a regular daily supply :rofl

Gross but since I have a health issue, I often wonder who will poop first, me or Sheba!

But since you have a dog no one will question who the poop belongs to!

He was lucky you didn't throw them at him.  :brick

I think poop bags would make good self-defense weapons.  Even most drug-crazed muggers would pause at having an open poop bag waved at them.  "Want some of this?"
