I’m pretty tired. We walked around 5 miles today, split between 2 different walks. Why?
- The temperature was 30 degrees higher today than yesterday.
- Generation 2 in Pokémon GO released last night.
Overall, I’ve caught 12 new ones so far today, which is decent progress.
As a side effect, Dora has gotten a really good amount of exercise, and she is napping very well now. She sniffed so many things, saw several people and their dogs, scared about 45 geese into a pond, and had a great time. In general, she is getting much better at walking on a leash, but I need to be better at consistency with correcting her pulling.
Some days, I have the energy and time to make her stop when she pulls and to stand there until she relaxes enough to be ready to keep walking. On other days, I just want to walk. Today… today was more of the latter. But consistency matters most in teaching Dora to walk nicely, so I should try to do better.
Otherwise, I logged into Duolingo for the first time in a while and discovered they have chat bots for French now!
I enjoyed talking to them more than I probably should, but they just rolled with my typos and underwhelming fluency. (Though I still maintain that if someone asked me “Do you want a sandwich or a salad?” and I said “A sandwich, please,” they would understand me even though it was a grammatical fragment.) 😑 Oh well.
It has been a pretty good day mentally and physically.
