Check out what others did for the prompt 

 
It's an amusing little whine when they want to go out” the butler said to the maid.

“Because you don’t have to do it” she said.

“How hard can it be?  I’ll do it.”

He put the leashes on the Great Danes and went to the walking path on the estate.

He felt so regal walking the two dogs until they both started running. 

“Sasha!  Max!  Stop! Stop!” he yelled as they kept going. 

They took him further down the path right into the creek.   

As he stood up to his knees in water he thought that whine wasn’t so amusing anymore.

Our daughter in NOLA has a friend who insisted on buying a Great Dane. The dog outweighs her by more than 40 pounds. Walks are definitely no fun. Great take on the prompt!!!!

Nice story, Viki :) ~~ I love to walk dogs. Obviously we don't have Great Danes.

Our Adi is a Beagle Dog and loves to sniff and walk. The only time she runs is to keep up with me walking or the golf cart that I'm driving.

The other dog is Katrin, our Toy Poodle. She doesn't like walk very far but that is amusing on its own right.

Great job, we both had dogs on our mind today.

That's perfect. I liked how I immediately thought the dogs were whining, and then realized it was the maid. What fun!

Having walked a few times with a 240 pound St. Bernard dog...I can attest to this.

This reminded me of a dog I used to have!

No matter how I tried to heel her she would drag me on our journey!

What a fun use of this difficult prompt!

Thanks for the smile.
