Ding Dong Dash

The boys (with a little encouragement from me) have recently started walking the dogs. On some outings, I walk one dog but, a lot of times, each of the older boys takes a dog and goes their own way through the neighborhood. Of course, Gabe wants to help. Now, no matter how big he thinks he is, Gabe is not quite big enough to walk either dog on his own. I mean, Jack and Jolie each outweigh Gabe by a good 20 lbs. Our solution to that has been to have him hold onto the leash along with either Marty, Joey, or me. Gabe has even gone out with just one of his brothers and one dog (no parent tagging along) and, until today, this solution has worked well. This afternoon Gabe decided he didn’t need to listen to Joey while they were out walking Jack. This sweet little face

decided to play ding dong dash through the neighborhood. He would take off from Joey, run up to the doors, and either ring the bell or knock really hard on it. Poor Joey had to chase him from house to house, dragging the dog with him. A few times, he had to drag Gabe away from the door. Luckily, it was early enough in the afternoon that most people were still at work. So, I guess I lucked out and won’t have a bunch of pissed off neighbors.

    Oh man… looks like he might be too cute for his own damn good! 🙂

    Now the question is, who did he learn the game from?

    He is so cute! Sounds like fun for boys! 🙂 If that’s the worst they do who can complain?

    Ding dong dash is a much cleaner name for the game as we refer to it in the South….

    Wonder which big brother taught him that game?

    He’s sooo precious. Although, I know you were embarrassed! Yeah, I’m interested from where stemmed the root of this evil too.

    Hello.
    Please read how IVF medications led to my breast cancer and how a breast cancer study using genetic testing to check estrogen metabolism is saving my life. Please share my story with all women who have used or are considering IVF, HRT and anyone with estrogen positive breast cancer.

    Thanks
