why I don’t walk more than one dog at once 

Since we’ve started having dogs around in 2001, we usually have more than one. Two seems to have been the usual number. This worked out well when Pam and I walked the dogs together. When Pam wasn’t available for walking dogs, I’d walk both dogs at once.

When we picked up a third dog, I’d still try to walk all of them at once. I’d use extendable leashes and set them for different lengths. This worked for a while and seemed to impress some people:

Impressed Person: “That is a beeping art!”
Me: “Aw shucks. ‘Tweren’t nothin.'”

Then an unsupervised dog would come along, get my dogs excited, and after barking their heads off and running around I’d look like a horrible accident at a leash factory.

That experience taught me a lesson: don’t walk 3 dogs at once.

A year or so later, I was walking Lulu and Boomer. When Boomer crossed an invisible fence to argue with 3 other dogs (learning-lessons), I was in a difficult situation. I couldn’t go after him because I also had Lulu with me.

That experience taught me a lesson: don’t walk 2 dogs at once.

One more incident like these and I’ll be taught that I should never walk any dogs again.

    I may have already been taught that I should never walk any dogs again – Dog Fight!
    Apparently, I didn’t listen.
