Bad Idea

Coyote country and really dark out so I get this idea to put the dogs on flexi leashes for the last pee break of the night. Just two though as the third "usually" is a 99% quick pee and head for the house kind of girl when it's this cold out. Not tonight though...she heads off out of the yard lights into the dark and of course I have no flashlight because I am holding two leashes.

Meanwhile I am already in trouble because the other two are already tangled and one does a spin thinking she is a horse being lunged and wraps herself tight to my boots so I can hardly move. I'm already dressed like a mummy in winter gear and can't see in the dark so I am attempting to get my feet untangled by feel only in two pairs of gloves overlapped and it's not working so well. I call the delinquent that I trusted and she comes but has the zoomies and runs past the other two I am tied to and they want to play also so of course my feet are completely bound. Bloody hell...no option but to struggle to get my boots off and walk back to the house in my socks, boots in one hand, both leashes in the other, and the two dogs so tangled that after we "all" made it in it took a few minutes after I set them free to undo the knots. Not doing that again. :lol: :lol: :lol:

OMG - that is just hilarious!! Not hilarious that you were nearly tied up by your own dogs but just picturing the scene and thinking about how frustrated you must have been...too funny.

Sounds like it's time for one dog at a time on the flexi-leash policy from now on?

I am just glad that the "bad idea" and "coyote country" didn't relate to one another, I was worried there for a minute

I agree with you! I was worried this as all going to end very badly. Well I guess it did end badly, but you know what I mean!

Well, I had this vision of your little guys dressed up in cowboy gear and lassoing you! Why is it always that the one you most trust is the one that decides to display some sort of unwanted behavior at a very inappropriate time?
