To pee or not to pee… on the sidewalk

Written by Diane. Posted in Uncategorized

dog peeing on sidewalk

Salut! I don’t usually post on Fridays but here we are… Also, if any of you reading get buried under the weekend snow, PLEASE SEND ME SNOW PICTURES!! I majorly miss the blizzards of the Northeast and it would make my weekend if you sent me some of the shots from around your neighborhood. Serious. OK, onto today’s post.

Whenever I’m alone walking home from the grocery store or the gym, no one says anything to me. But when I’m out walking Dagny, people will approach us to pet her, ask for directions, and in today’s story, tell me where my dog can and cannot pee. So let me take you back to last week when our morning walk started out like any other walk…

French lessons with Tom while walking the dog

Tom and I enjoy walking Dagny together on the weekends, and with a few extra vacation days lately due to the holidays, we found ourselves doing even more walking than usual. A topic of conversation that always comes up on walks? The French language. I ask a few questions, Tom gives a few examples and sometimes reviews a few things in English as well. It’s always a learning experience.

What did I learn the other day? How not to say your dog is a pervert (after telling someone their dog was, thankfully, not a pervert). Not exactly what I was trying to say. So yeahhhhhhhhhh, not my finest moment.

Learn from my mistakes… GO!

Today I’m changing that… I’m obsessed with dogs. I fully admit that! Having a dog is something that completes me, and as an adult, I’ve only owned a dog in France. On the surface, having a dog in France is very similar to what you’d experience in the USA. There are all different breeds, you can get your dog from a shelter, rescue, breeder, or pet store (;-() just like the USA and veterinarians are widely available. Also, the French love their dogs as much as Americans do. But let’s talk differences between having a dog in France versus the USA.

life lessons from my dog

Learning is a constant process whether we realize it or not. From school, work, people around us, to books and more, we never stop learning. But has your dog taught you anything lately? While dogs aren’t human, they do know a whole lot about life. Maybe at first glance their wagging tail, questionable napping habits and relentless desire for treats would lead you to believe otherwise, but after thinking it through, my dog Dagny has taught me a lot about the important things in life.

Here are 6 life lessons I learned from my dog!
