She wanted to take Blue for a really long walk first thing this morning and they both loved it! Had a dicey moment when he went after a squirrel, but she thankfully thought fast and let go of the leash so she didn't get pulled down. From that point on, if we saw a squirrel ahead she would hand the leash to me. Not that he couldn't take me down, but better me than her.
I think my cousins 2 year old male husky got a massive shock when I was visiting them and decided to join them for their walk, as I was holding his leash when he spotted a cat sitting on a fence. The look on his face when his leash suddenly went taut and instead of pulling my fairly frail female cousin along with him, he got stopped in his tracks was priceless, bear in mind I'm 6'1" broad shouldered and a bit overweight, it still took an effort on my part to hold him!

On Sunday (the 9th) my son graduated from high school.
On Monday the 10th my wife lost her favorite uncle (her mother's brother) to a long bout with cancer.
On Friday, her father (my father in law) died after a long, debilitating illness.
Both men were both very old (90 and 88, respectively), their deaths were expected, they led long, accomplished lives and were very vital and active until their last year or so, and they were fortunate enough to die home surrounded by loved ones.
