Later in the day I got a phone call that one of the rescued puppies I had placed a few weeks ago needed a new home immediately, as the owner had been hospitalized for most of Aug and was going back in again this morning and couldn't care for him. Someone else was going to take him but was a no-show, so either I took him back or he was going to the shelter this morning, so you know what happened.

Since my two were moving forward, McGee finally decided he best do the same and did a little better, but would speed up and slow down, not keeping pace with the other two. It wasn't long before I was switching hands and twirling around to try to keep three dogs and two leashes from becoming tangled, or worse, landing me on my butt.
It wasn't pleasant for me, and probably not a pretty sight for anyone who might have caught me dancing down the street, but I managed to keep things moving for probably just under 10 minutes. That was enough; back to the house we went.
My legs didn't get much of a workout from the excursion yesterday, but my arms sure did, and I also got to work on my balance. Errands took up part of my day today ( I went shopping for running shoes ... that'll be a separate blog post) so I probably won't get a good workout in, but might make another attempt at dog-walking this evening. A friend might be coming by with his two dogs later, so can I possibly do it with five of them?
If you're in the area, grab your video camera. I guarantee it will be worthy of YouTube.
