Meaning of Phrase, "Walking the Dog"

Posted by Karl Thurber on August 26, 2001

Does anyone know the meaning of the phrase, "Walking the Dog"? It is also the title of an old American country music song (popularized by singer Webb Pierce in the 1950s). I believe the phrase has to do with being rejected and frozen out of a romantic relationship.

Thanks.
