A Walk? The Life of a Dog

We are “babysitting” my daughter’s min pin

He has some issues, his biggest issue is he has some kidney issues and could drink water non-stop, however that means he has to get rid of the water and he’s not really reliable about releasing it in an appropriate place.  He wanted to go outside, but I knew he had water earlier and the deck had lots of water on it from the rain.  I knew he would be lapping up the water like a crazy dog.  I decided it would be better if we went for a walk down the street.  I opened the door to go out and down the stairs and he sat down and would not budge.  I chose to pick him up and put him down on the driveway.  He took 2 steps and refused to move. I tried to run and he looked at me like I was nuts. I thought a bit of exercise would be good, but he didn’t want to know anything about it.  So now he is resting and sleeping and tonight while my husband and I are sleeping he will whine and carry on until one of us gets up  and lets him outside and gives him a drink.
