Riley has been having the winter blues and needed an activity with just mom today. It is 60 degrees in Pittsburgh with rain and snow on the way so we took advantage of the weather and went to the park for a Picnic! Riley has a stash of Burger King and McDonald’s gift cards burning a hole in his “pocket” so we went to Burger King to get him a cheeseburger and McDonald’s to get me a fry. (They are right next door to each other) We don’t eat fast food very often and I don’t let the Big Dogs have it at all so this was a huge treat for Riley. He has been in fast food withdrawal!
There were a lot of people exercising at the park as Riley and I enjoyed lunch. I suggested a walk after we finished, but in true Riley fashion he got out of the truck, stretched, walked 4 feet and turned around. He has been smiling the rest of the day!
I took advantage of the weather and took down the Outdoor Christmas Decorations. I believe it is warmer today than the day I put them up! I was exhausted after I finished and still have 3 to 4 hours of office work, but I looked at the forecast and decided I better take Rufus and Bailey for a walk. The “dog whisperer” Natalie came up to help and it was wonderful to get out of the house and go for a real walk! All 3 dogs are passed out. Not bad for a Thursday in January!
