Well…our first spring time walk did not go very well:(

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound and update lovers…We were all so excited about our first real walk of the Spring.  We set off with vim and vigor but it quickly turned out not so good.

Chaps clearly did not feel good.  He started eating grass about half way up the street.  He was out of breath and seemed in pain.  We turned right around and came home.

He was dragging by the time we entered the front door.

He walked right to the water dish and then to the cool tile bathroom floor.


Grandma got some cool rags and I wiped him down.  He rested and did eat his dinner.

Here he is resting and licking his elderly paws.  Himz is 77.

Tomorrow we were going to take another walk but now we are going to take a drive instead.  We will let the kids gets some air.

More making sure the Mayor does not over extend himself later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Poor baby! He probably just wasnt himself yet. Give him all the love and cuddles that he needs and let him rest. We all love him.

    If it’s been a while since he’s walked you may have to start out slow. I know Jethro doesn’t get too far on our walks before he’s dragging. I think he’s just out of shape from being inside all winter. I have faith that he’ll bounce out of it with no problem. You did good by coming back to the house and letting him rest.
