Family Walk: By the Numbers

While I originally thought it would be hard to have dogs without a backyard, we have realized that our walks help us create better connections with our pups and spend more quality time together as a family.
Here are some fun facts about an average family walk 'by the numbers':

Number of Miles Walked: About 3

Most Common Things People Said About the Pooches: 
"They are so beautiful!"
"They are so cute!"
"Look, they're posing for the camera."
"What kind of dogs are they?"
"Can I pet them?"

Most Common Incorrect Questions Asked about the Pooches: 
"Are they twins?"
"Are they brothers"?

Number of People We Met on This Walk Who Recognized the Dogs from Online: Three. Thanks for saying hi!

Number of Coats Worn: Zero! After one of the toughest winters ever, we finally deserved it.
Number of Hats Worn: One, shared between Mr. B and E.

Number of Grown Men Making Kissy-Noises at Miss M: Two! One was so enamored with "the dog with the beautiful brown-striped fur". The second man was waiting at the bus-stop and thought making kiss-noises would attract Miss M.
She was not impressed. 

Number of Stores/Restaurants Actually Leaving Dog Treats Outside: 4

Number of Stores/Restaurants Mr. B Anticipated Leaving Dog Treats Outside: 7!  Mr. B seems to remember all the places where the treats are normally kept. If the treats aren't in their proper location, he will stare uncomfortably at whichever person just happens to be standing there in the expectation that they are holding the treat for him.

Like dating.
Next time.
Oh, Mr. B!

Haha, I love this:) One downside to not living in a city is that Kaya & Norman get to say hello to way less people than they'd like each day.

Norman makes a beeline for people taking a rest on hikes or at the park. He'll spend as much time with them as they'll allow:)

Kaya just likes to dance in circles around people, showing off her ball:)

Ha! Petey knows the location of every storefront with treats jars within a 3 mile radius of the house! Even if it has been years since he last got a treat there.

What a fun post! I think this proves that Mr. B is kind of smart :)

Ooooh! I'm sure Ms. M doesn't like being referred to as a brother!
Petey remembers EVERY place a treat was dispensed :)
