Five Embarrassing Moments Dog Walking In Seattle

Dog walking is not without it's "bloopers." And I've had my embarrassing moments!
#5 - The Greyhound I was walking in Ballard took a huge poo. As I bent down to bag it up, I lost my balance. Yep...landed hands-first! America's Funniest Home Videos, did you catch that? $10,000 winner, right?
#4 - In Phinney Ridge, the well behaved Golden Retriever I was walking wanted to say hi to a bow wearing poodle. Her owner and I were chatting when I glanced down to see my dog with his leg hiked up. Peeing on the poodle. My face = fire truck red.
#3 - When I first started walking a certain Cocker Spaniel in Ballard, I didn't know how super-excited he gets when he sees a squirrel. So that first time, sure enough he saw one and launched into a shrill howling that sounded like a cross between one of those European police sirens and a car alarm. It was so loud! I started looking around nervously, as if he was going to wake up the whole neighborhood. Nevermind that it was 1:30 in the afternoon.
#2 - I was on the elevator with my favorite Bulldog from downtown Seattle, when all of a sudden he tooted! The man on the elevator looked at me like I did it. Oh, no I didn't! When I looked down at Cornbread. he was also looking at me like I did it!

#1 - On Queen Anne, I was walking with a sweet Boxer. Apparently, he was a little excited that day. All of a sudden, he jumped my leg and started humping. I actually lost my balance and fell! I was laughing on the ground and the dog was licking my face. As I got up, a man walked by and said: "What's your boyfriends name?"
