OH - MY - GOODNESS!!!

One hot and sunny August day, an energetic girl, named Lindsey, set out for her daily morning walk with her two handsome bulldogs, Vito and Samson. Now, it was her custom to pray for her protection on her 3-mile walk as she closed her front door because she believed that the Lord cared about even the smallest details of her life. And, she knew that at any given moment her two rowdy canines could drag her to her death if only they saw something provocative like an innocent little squirrel or even a sly baby kitten. Lindsey tried to trick herself into thinking that she could control these enormous beasts, but deep inside, she knew that she could not.

This day she had an extra spring in her step, though, because her thoughtful husband had gone the extra mile to ensure her safety. Only the night before, he had taken her on a date to the local Petsmart to see what sort of apparatus they make to outwit such mighty creatures. Money was no object to him when safeguarding his wife, and he did have a small personal interest in being able to hook his dogs up as if they were participating in the Ididarod. Nonetheless, they scoured the aisles, hand in hand, looking for just the perfect device. At last, their eyes met on comfort fit harnesses that boasted phrases like, "instantly controls misbehavior" and "no pulling". These words were like the Hallelujah chorus to Lindsey's ears, so quickly, she snatched up two extra large contraptions and a two-dog leash, and ran to the cashier with a grin on her face.

The excited couple couldn't wait to get home to try out their new finds on the aforementioned dogs. They raced in the door, ripped open the packages, and strapped up their dogs like a bonafide sled team. The claims of the packages were not in vain. They did, in fact, "instantly control misbehavior" and there was "no pulling". The two rejoiced in the solution of the problem and they grinned at each other because of their success!

Yeah for harnesses! I had to get those when we had our 2 beagles. It was the only way I could take them for a walk, as opposed to them taking me.

That was great! You can really tell who is in control now!:)

Your babies look so much like my Allie.....

She's not outdoorsy though; if she had to walk farther than the mailbox, she would probably report us to the nearest PETA office.:)

HA! How funny! I didn't even know they made things like that. How ingenious. Oh, and the first week home from our honeymoon, I will have you know that D went to Vintage Stock and bought an old school nintendo so that I would play video games with him. We stayed up til 2 am all the time playing Mario. It's the only one I'll play!!! ;)
