The picture above is of Fleur and her friend. The "twinkle toes" in this blog is not Fleur, but I could not get a photo of Power in all his twinkle toes glory!
He can try my patience if the sun is too hot, or the temp too cold, or if it's raining, if my back is hurting, and walking is painful. HOWEVER he is such an adorable personality that his "twinkle toes" activity is just a happy trait that adds to my life.
Last night he could not decide that "business" was a necessity. I walked him around in the area near my RV. He thoroughly enjoyed looking at the stars, checking out the rocks in the desert soil, searching for rabbits to lunge at, and just generally being happy to prolong the walk. But after peeing a gallon or two he never got his mind on "business". After a really long time of letting him carry his toy teddy bear around in his mouth, I finally decided that enough was enough, and we went back inside. Fleur had been standing inside the door being very curious about WHY Power is still outside. She actually looked like she was sending him signals to say "what the heck?" Power of course just ignored her.
We all know what happens when our dogs won't get down to "business! It means that at some ungodly hour, the dogs will need to go outside, and that involves us having to get out of bed and go through the routine with him so he can do his twinkle toes madness and let the stars be his witness that the 3:30 am urgent outside trip was a necissity!
