We are participating in the Iditawalk this year.  It's where we walk 30 minutes per day until we have walked 1049 minutes, one minute for every mile of the Iditarod.  We have been featured a couple times on the Team Sibermal blog.  Check out the link in our sidebar.

Steve doesn't like his Gentle Leader, so Mom bought him an Easy Walk Harness.  He wore it for the first time today.  He looked like a total goof ball.  I tried to pretend that I didn't know him and Mom was giggling so much, she could barely talk, as you can hear in this video.

Later on during the walk, Dad stopped to adjust Steve's harness and I took a roll in the grass.  Mom says I was messing with my Gentle Leader, but honestly, I was just taking a break and most definitely not trying to take off my GL.
Happy Monday!

Looks like more wrasslin' was going on than walkin'.

Steve: When I first adopted my family, my mom tried (among other things) some sort of no-pull harness thingy on me. I ate it. And the next one. I started going after the third one, and she gave it to someone with a little hunting dog who "pulled". Food for thought.
Tail wags,

Haha, that was a fun walk!
How you keep your fur shiny and clean and nice like that?

Steve - A very stylish gait.

Kat -Momma tried one of the GL on me at the store last week. It only took 2 minutes to convince her that it was not going to work - I had my foot caught in it.

That thing looks wicked silly. I better behave before my humans get any ideas!

Kat, I like the way you jumped on Steve at the end there, just to remind him he is a goofball.

We decided that we want go out for a prance, err we mean walk, to. Kat was too embarrasses that she had to attack Steve. Wilbur would have climbed a tree. We're sure that mom was laughing WITH Steve, not AT Steve.

That is an awesome video-what a cliff-hanger. It stopped right when the action was getting good. Let me know how your easy walk harness goes. I'm still stuck witht he GL. . and yes, I still pretty much hate it.

Steve - File a complaint with your attorney at claw. All that laughter at your expense is just not right.

And we agree with Oz - the video was just getting good when it cut off. That's the part we wanted to see. Tangled leashes. Talking Sibes, Humans falling down. See who would have been laughing then.

we couldn't help but giggle along with you! Nice to see you in action!

Maybe if you're such a puller, you should just get a real harness and cart and haul yer Momma around!


Amber and Nala said...

Looks like you got Steve at the end of the walk Kat! :) Were you teasing him for being a prancer?


Kathryn and Ari said...

What a fantabulous idea! And we're huge fans of easy walk harnesses here: they make Ari's swan leaps a little easier for everyone to deal with.

What is it with these women, Mom was giggling too. She said Phantom did the same silly walk when she tried it on him.

Woos, Thunder
