Hiker and I decided to be lazy this morning, or actually, I decided to be lazy. Hiker kept trying to get me to get out of bed. We got up at 8 am and had breakfast, then we went for a 1.5 mile walk. Hiker did not give me any problem this morning about putting on her collar and leash. Maybe she is a “morning person” or is that “morning dog”? Anyway, she didn't pee all over the place when I got her ready to go. After we came home I did a load of laundry and then settled down to watch some holiday movies on Hallmark Channel. Later in the afternoon, saw a movie on “Encore” called “The River Wild” with Kevin Bacon and Meryl Streep. Had never seen it before. It was pretty good.
