Leash Walking

This one is exclusively reserved for dogs. Sure they make leashes for other animals, but try walking your cat on one. Just try it. Tell me how you enjoy the medical bills that follow.
Although leashes aren't their favorite things, dogs will and often do walk on them. You can walk a dog on a leash for hours without anyone thinking it's a problem or without your dog getting overly upset about it. But humans will definitely not walk on leashes. The next time you go for a stroll with one of your friends, try putting a leash on them. Just try it. And tell me how you enjoy the medical bills that follow.
There is an important exception, and that's lazy parents (often found at Walmart) who can't seem to keep their miniature human under control without tethering them. It's weird, but hey, at least the kids aren't clicker trained...or are they?

  1. I wouldn't even think about putting a leash on a cat. Not ever.

    As for the kids. They should all be on a leash.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. We have lots of furiends who walk on leashes and love it, because it is the only way they can be outside! As for us, we become limp and won't move an inch!! (hehehehe) Thanks for stopping by our blog!
    Your FL furiends,

  3. No need to thank me, I enjoy reading it. But thank you for stopping by. And yeah, Frank and Ozzie have the same reaction to the leash as Samantha and Tigger. Complete refusal.

  4. so precious... send me a pik for my blog!

  5. Thanks Valerie. The dog in the pic isn't actually my dog (see the flickr creative commons citation at the bottom). But I'd love to send you pictures of my actual dog (the goof in my profile photo) And thanks for visitng.
