for walking the dogs!! As most of you know I work Midnight to noon. Today, easy child took difficult child to baseball game, so nobody was home. I ran a few errands, few calls and went to bed. Slept until midnight. So, I get up and take the dogs for a walk. The park is a block away and usually let Chloe off the leash, she never wanders far from me. Tonight I did the same, only I let puppy off leash too. bad, bad. Puppy ran right through the park and around the houses. She came back but ran right by me down the street. I got her and leashed her up again and continued walking on the sidewalk along the park. I saw a police car drive by on the other side of the park. When it turned away I put Chloe back on the leash and kept walking. When I was on my way back home I got to the end of the park and THREE squad cars pulled up. :surprise: One from both directions and one from the street I live on. (didn't see how he got back there, only one block street) They said, "little late to be walking the dogs". I told them I work 3rd shift so it was normal for me to be awake. They reminded me I cannot be IN the park after dusk. I told them I was not IN the park. :hammer: They told me to have a safe walk and left. I wonder if someone called the police when puppy was running loose. We did not make any noise. I didn't yell for her. Don't know.
