The other day it was raining just slightly and I decided I should have more exercise. I put Edgar on my walker with a leash and we walked down to the parking lot for residents.

 Then we out on the sidewalk of Miller and to Alto Camino. It was a mistake I discovered early on and I should have turned back. Edgar was absolutely hysterical. He tried to run away. I picked him and put him back because he jumped off the walker a couple of times.

Since I am pretty unsteady on my feet and I had to let go of everything to pick him up, I was afraid I would tip over.

I wondered if I should let go of the leash and let him run home but I was afraid he may not know his way or could get caught on his leash and get lost. The sound of the cars scared him so much.

So scared I was going to lose him, I hurried along, turned the corner and came in the front door. There he was happy. People were talking to him and petting him and he loved it.

I gave him a treat. He ate it and went next door and went to sleep on my neighbor's pillow.

I am glad that one turned out all right. It must have been pretty unnerving to think that Edgar may get lost or hurt!

Glad you are both safe. The first part foretold the rest.

It's been so cold this winter that it is really hard for me to want to take a walk. I am sorry your walk was so eventful and glad you and Edgar made it home. I hope you won't stop taking walks. I sometimes fear I won't be able to start up again when I stay home so long.
