We always attribute dog walks as a favour to the dog, after all he needs to pee and poop and get exercise and all the blah.. But I have had the most amazing times on my walk with Leo, my now 9 year old handsome Labrador. His size is like that of a lion cub which does disarm people a bit but is a bagful of mush. We walk on the airport road, Pune and whenever I want to show off about how close the airport is from my place, I say Leo goes for a walk to the airport.
Marking his territory on each and every walk
So as we begin, a moment later come my fruit lady who will stand and pet my baby, watch him go wiggling to her, in return he gets a pat and some Marathi endearments. The people standing around just watch with amusement, some with bewilderment. Bu the actual journey begins now. He has this habit of passing by the guard of the next modern office building and kind of shakes his bum as if he is going to poop and then walk right away. Also, sometimes I wonder where he stores so much pee in his body. He pees on every pole and every wall. It seems as if in the end he is squeezing a dropper for at least a drop to pass by marking his so called territory. It’s super amusing. I am totally indebted to him for all the fun he adds to my life.
How he entertains himself on a road
On the way to Rohan Mithila is a cordoned land where there a hoard of street dogs but the other side of the fence. Leo just stands there and watches totally safe by my side and his body almost touching my leg. Such a tease I tell you. They bark themselves hoarse and then he walks away when it’s not entertaining anymore.
I thoroughly enjoy our walks and wish to make you all a part of them too! See you in our next walk! Bye and woof, woof ,wag ,wag!
