Having read about Roc's 'walking dilemma', I'd like to share an experience with you all. One night recently while walking with Boeing on the quiet sub-road opposite our house, I thought I would give him a little surprise :biglaugh: . We ran back and forth a couple more times then paused to catch our breath. I asked Boeing, "Wasn't that fun, kiddo? Wanna run some more?" You should have seen the poor dog...eyes bulging, tongue hanging out a mile, and he gave me a look like I can't believe you did that, Mom. As both of us love to run, we really had a time of our life that night!

So, I guess we need a little creativity, a bit over the top sometimes, to make it fun for us and our dogs. And beagles really love surprises!!

I also get funny looks from stangers on the street when they hear me talking to my dog using the tone of voice one normally uses with little children. :hi: I simply can't keep my mouth shut while walking with Boeing. I guess most Thai people are used to the notion of dogs being kept for work purposes. They think of their dogs as animals, which is not what we do in our household. Dogs are family members to us and they need to be involved in our conversation too. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

As for the chasing part, sometimes we do it in the house with Boeing zig-zagging around the furniture while grabbing his stolen prize in his mouth. When he's moving among the furniture, he'll slow his pace and that's when we pretend to grab him in the middle with 'Gotcha!!' Boy, that really sends him off again /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/laugh.gif This can go on and on... :doh:
