I had company on my walk with Abby yesterday. 2 girls who live next door are always asking to walk Abby when they see me return from my walk. Yesterday they caught me at the start of it and wanted to come along. I said sure and handed the leash over too them. I got 1 of them to phone home and get the OK from the parents. I thought they'd tire of the walk soon but they went the whole 4 miles.
