The dogs don't worry about finances, but they do worry about the heat. I've never seen a Dalmatian that liked Texas Summers. Now that the weather is starting to get warmer, I've noticed that Dot and Dash are walking a bit slower. Our morning walk usually takes about 45 minutes when the three of us are walking briskly. Today, it took almost an hour. By June I'll probably have to carry the dogs home. Neither of them know how to pace themselves. They race out the door tugging and pulling until they get hot and then they just stop. On a hot day it's hell getting them back home again after they both decide they've had enough at the halfway point. I try to tell them that I've got ads to finish and websites to design so I can continue to pay their vet bills, but they just look for a cool patch of grass to lie down in and refuse to budge.
Luckily, it cooled down this evening and the weather was perfect for obedience class. All the dogs in class did well this evening. The days are getting longer too, so that we aren't finishing class in the dark any more. It wasn't a bad way to end the day. Hey, when you've got two dogs who'll sit, stay and come when they're called, how can you keep worrying about the stock market.
