Walking With Steve

Welcome to a new edition of "Walking With Steve".  You might remember when I tried this once before and it started pouring down rain and Mom's pants fell off.  (Okay, almost fell off.)  Well, now I'm back for another go at it.  It gets dark pretty early here in Seattle in December, so it's dark when we go for walks.  I decided to show off all the Christmas lights in the neighborhood for this Christmas edition of Walking With Steve.

It was only 25F when we decided to head out.  As you can see in this picture, I just threw on my leash and puplight and I was ready to go.  As you can also see, Mom threw (and I use that term loosely) on her hat, gloves, snow pants, snow coat, iPhone headphones, treat bag, poop bags, camera, head lamp, and a variety of other things and then she was ready to go.  Can you believe all the stuff humans require?
I took three videos because our camera doesn't like when the videos get too long.  This first one shows our house (not very decorated) and the rest of our street.

Next we have another street with several lights.  This was taken after Mom about fell on her rear crossing the street.
Finally we have this section of houses that are all decorated.  Remember them because I'm going to do another segment where we come back to one of them.  I discovered something interesting, but Mom had already put the camera away.

Mom says she's embarrassed at how noisy her walking is and will try to do better next time.  She does say she can't help it because she's walking really fast to keep up with my pace.  Excuses, excuses.

My mum says she is not surprised that your mum has trouble keeping up with you - she has seen for herself how fast you go! Very interesting and I will be waiting to see what you come back to next time.

Steve - excellent job of you taking your mom for a brisk walk. We understand that a Tired Human is a Good Human.

Your mom has a walking belt? We'd kill our mom if we hooked her up to one of those! I think the only ones who wouldn't is Abbya and Kona, cuz they are gimpy.

Great videos! Your neighborhood looks very beautiful! I also love your pup light! Very Khool!!

For some reasons the videos dun work for me but I can imagine how its like for your mom to be brought for walkie by Steve when its snowing.

It must be really pretty to be having white Christmas.

My mom says thanks for the puplight link. She is ordering them for me and Flash now.

Jack & Moo said...

Wow, furry khool! You've given our humom an idea, now he wants to go out & tape all the lights around here too.... but she's saying maybe she should leave us home so she can concentrate on doing it well. Don't woo think she should concentrate on us instead?

Woos & a-roos,

Woor neighborhwood is furry pretty with all those lights! My humans say we can't decorate our house becawse I would chew on all the lights.

My humans really like woor puplight! Maybe they'll get me one so we can go walking at night!

Tell woor mom that she doesn't need to bring so much stuff next time. Maybe all she needs is a puplight too!

Great job, Steve!
You know, you're right about all that stuff bipeds carry! Our mom talked about getting packs for us to wear and Dad asked why? what would she put in them? Mom said, "Poop bags, flashlight, treats, phone..." that sort of stuff. Dad said, "But YOU carry all that stuff!" Silly mom. What a slacker. Trying to get us to do her work!

Madison's mom makes lots of noise when she is walking, too, like cussing at the rain and swearing at the slippery sidewalk and stuff like that ... AS IF Madison had anything to do with it!

The Daily Echo said...

That was a very festive walk! Thanks fur sharing it with us. We like your puplight.

One of the pack said...

Wonderful walking with you, Steve. How did you get a walk all by yourself? We are looking forward to more beautiful scenes from the neighborhood.

I am in awe! I had no idea that all the houses get shiny at night. I have only been able to walk during the day. The houses look great with the lights on them. I'm going to need to show this video to Kelly and John so that they can take me out at NIGHT! It looks like that's where the party's at.

Also. . John is into gear. .so I'm positive that if he sees this I'll get a pup light for Christmas. Thanks for sharing!


Amber and Nala said...

What fun Steve...the lights around your neighborhood are way better than mine! :) I LOVE your light on your collar! I must say though that I am quite intrigued as to what you discovered??? I also can't believe how cold and snowy it is still is over there. We got more snow tonight and I have been inside alot the past few days as it has been WAY below freezing here...BRRRR!

Stay warm

Marley said...

Humans are crazy with all of their supplies! You're a good pup to walk your Mom before bed like that. I'll bet she apprecaites it.


Amber and Nala said...

Yep, I've been catching real ones too! The one in the picture is from me helping Mom put up decorations! ;)

Fun walkies! Pretty lights too. Tell woo mom to be more careful when she walks. We don't want her falling again. your puplight is COOL!

Hey Steve,
How long does it take your mom to get ready? We live out in the boonies and there aren't a lot of lights, especially on the "summer" houses. We have some stupid lighted deers and spiral tree in our front yard but they won't run so we can't chase them. Jubal pees on them and the lights are now out on one side of them. Mom said dad would fix it, dad said mom would buy a new deer.

thanks for sharing your video with us! Mom says she would never take you for a walk because you were dragging your Mom!!! Come on! Our Mom is a whiner!
We love the christmas lights!

You definitely walk fast! No wonder she has a hard time walking with you and then adding Kat too. Phew.

PetraZ said...

I like the way your human talks. She sounds so cute and happy! Thanks for the tour of the neighborhood.
Merry Christmas to the Washington Woos and Wilbur and the Humans, of course.
