Today’s trip to the park was nothing short of miraculous. At least five things happened that would never have happened this time last year.
1. Voluntary checking in. What happened to Mr. I Can’t Look At You I Have To Constantly Scan For Danger?!
2. Sniffing a tree. No, wait, that one has always happened. How about continuing to calmly sniff the tree even after a strange man (in a hat!) walked up out of the bushes? Not the trail. The bushes.
3. Eating some cookies.
4. Loose-leash walking. He’s always had terrible leash manners at this park, because there’s no clearly defined trail.
5. Sitting down, hanging out, watching the cars go by. (!!!)
A very good day.
