The walk that wasn't meant to be

Today is one of the WAG greyhound walks. It's 60 degrees in December and rain is in the forecast. Blue was ready to go when I checked the forecast again and saw that it's to start raining at home within the hour. So I decided to not attend the big greyhound event (an hours drive one way) and walk the hounds at home. So out we went. 

First we encountered 2 unleashed chihuahuas. They wanted to say hi and protect their territory. We crossed to the opposite side of the street. Fortunately all dogs were well behaved and no one encountered a car on this busy section of the street. After departing chichi company, I noticed Blue's foot was bleeding...walk over. I got everyone turned around and started back up the hill. 

On the way back home Blue stubbed his other foot. We paused, collected ourselves and carried on to home (we weren't even a block away). Once home, bleeding foot seemed ok. Blue tolerated a brief Epsom salt soak (I'm always amazed at how much gunk comes off his feet) and now Blue is resting on his bed.
