Walk Time

Gigi “talks” in “blue” while Jiffy “talks” in “purple”.

Gigi runs a tight ship at our house. She knows when it is time to get up, when it is lunch time, when it is nap time, when it is dinner time, when it is time to watch television and when to go to bed.

We also know when it is walk time. Daddy Harve usually gets up a little bit before Mama. He has his breakfast and his quiet time while she takes a shower. Then she feeds us while he goes “into the library to read”. We know when we hear the toilet flush that it is walk time. Regardless of where we are in the house, when we hear that happen, the door open and the light go out we head for the front door.

I stand very still while jackets, if needed, and my outside collar is put on. Mama calls me “Bobble Head” as I’m so excited to go that I won’t stand still to get my jacket and/or my outside collar on. Then we are out the door. Mama can’t go for the walk because of her hip, so while we are gone she has her quiet time and eats breakfast.

When we are back, we bound through the front door and head for the water bowls. Then we get our jackets and/or collars taken off. Sometimes we like to play hide and seek making them find us to get the things off.

Walk Time is a fun time.
