Mama picked up a new leash for Patches and I to share when we go for our walks. She thought that it would easier than two separate leashes, especially since we live in the city with lots of traffic. However, after testing it out all weekend, we happened upon some pretty major flaws.
The first time we used it, the leashes were the same length. Mama did this because she thought it would keep Patches and me on equal footing. And it did, for a little while. Then, I had to stop to poo...and I poo'ed right on Patches' nose before my mama could figure out what was happening! Needless to say, our walk ended there and Patches was forced to have a bath.
After that incident, mama made an adjustment to the lengths - giving me a little more, and Patches a little less. Just when we thought we had a good balance, we all stopped to socialize with an Amber/Charlie knock-off. If you look closely at the picture, you will see that my portion of the leash got wrapped around Patches' neck...when I decided it was time to move on, I pulled on the leash and dragged Patch-man about 15 feet before mama could make the correction.
Oops! Not my fault!!! We're still working on this dual leash thing! After that, mama unhooked us, and finished the walk with two leashes. (Luckily, she came prepared!) I don't know how many more walks it will take for us to perfect this system, but we are not about to give up so soon!
