Other Things I Never Thought I Would Need to Learn...

They say life is all about the journey, and about the new things and lessons learned each and every day...

Well, that's for certain!

It's been an interesting past month certainly, while I've been traveling around the country, but I have learned a few things in that period, most of which I never thought I'd have to learn about or how to do:

  • How to film a celebrity (Michael Caine) shooting a movie scene while corralling two dogs and talking sweet to the cop blocking the way...
  • How to handle one's dog and complete strangers who are absolutely convinced your dog is a wolf, yet thinking it's the smartest thing to go rushing up to said wolf to pet it...
  • How to rush a dog four blocks through the French Quarter before they go potty to reach any semblance of grass...
  •  How to explain one's dogs going nuts at the base of trees: "They fancy themselves expert squirrel hunters"...
  • How to manage when one's dogs corner and kill a squirrel in front of the public tennis courts where a group of children are receiving a lesson, which splatters blood on your shorts and hands, and which requires continuing one's walk with blood dripping from one of the dog's jaws and snout, past the police station....
All in all, some pretty important lessons there I think!
