But enough is enough! Tuesday I woke up and met my friends to walk our dogs. There is a little patch of desert behind our houses where we can let them run free. The dogs love this and get a nice run in. So after our morning walk, I get the kids off to school and clean up the kitchen. The weather is nice outside, so I decide to go for a run - ALONE! After all, I already walked the dog. I needed a little "me" time.
I waited until Rusty was sound asleep on his bed upstairs. I slowly tiptoed downstairs, then paused to see if he had roused. Still asleep. I quietly grabbed my ipod off the counter. I paused again as I heard something stir upstairs. Dang it. I held very still for a few minutes. All is quiet, so I slowly go for my sunglasses. Then I hear a thud. He's probably just shifting or fluffing up his bed. I continue to tiptoe around the corner and make my way for the door.
YIKES!!!! There is Rusty waiting on the middle stair. He caught me red handed. He knew I was trying to sneak out without him.
AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!! I am sneaking around in my own house! Well, I have to tell you that I really wanted my alone time, so I locked him in his crate and took off running. I could hear him howling all the way down the block.
PS. He forgave me.
