So Pig In a Blanket IS Easier To Say. . .

We took a wonderful walk today. 3.5 miles! Yes I know it isn't impressive for everyone, but for us with gimpy knees, no matter how many of them we have, 3.5 miles in a stretch is cause for a pat on the back.

Turns out there is beauty in the city as our walk showed us. We woke up to snow and while I normally am a huge fair weather walker, that darn clock is ticking down. . .down. . .down. And turns out the 30 miles down walk them selves-I actually have to do it! But back to the beauty in the city. We rousted out between flurries and it was a beautiful time to walk.

Steam on the river walk-proof this weather just can't make up its mind, is it warm? Is it Cold? Who knows?

With the melting snow dripping from the trees it was just glowing green.

Can you see what I see?

"Lets go crazymomlady! 3.5 miles is nothin'!"

"Uuhhggg. . .3.5 miles is a long way! Are you crazy or somthin' crazymomlady?"

So sure its easier to say "pig in a blanket", but "Cavalier King Charles Spaniel In A Blanket" is so much cuter!

Maizey is really cute in the blanket! You guys are doing such a great job :D

Thanks for your lovely comment.
However, we've never heard of the four quadrants of positive reinforcement and it'll be great if you could brief us through it :) Thanks.

LOL way too cute! Good for you to go so far in one day! I'm not gonna make 30 miles... LOL. But I just added mine up and I'm up to 14.5 miles so that's not too bad! Maybe I'll try for next month too. :)

Marie said...

Woohoo! 3.5 miles is great! Those before and after pictures of Maizey are awesome. LOL She just cracks me up.

katie said...

Thx priscilla! you couldn't tell that I think she's a cutey too, could you? LOL

About the four quadrants, I'm still learning myself! A couple of resources though, a podcast that covered it very basically in episode one is:
Also check the Karen Pryor Clicker Training link from my blog. She is one of the pioneers of clicker training and that is a great site!
