This morning I got up at 5:15am and took Dude for a walk. Theresa is working today and our usual dog-walking friend is also occupied, so my aim was to tire the beast out so that he won't eat the furniture when left alone. I succeeded, as you can see, although while still a mile or so from the house. Carrying the 70-pounder home wasn't an option. It took a lot of coaxing.
