Just wanted to share my relief and enthusiasm with how well the first unmonitored (sorta- I watched through the blinds) dog walk went with my son.

It may sound strange but my son, 12, hasn't been allowed to walk Ruby very much because 1. He panics thinking "what if another dog shows up?!" and 2. Ruby is so strong I wanted to make sure he could handle her, without hurting her. (she uses a prong).

Now that she's 1y and 4mos, she's calmer around him. She knows whats expected on a walk (for the most part), and he is more relaxed around her. So off I let them go down the block. I peeped through the blinds the whole time. They did great! He's been feeling very grown up and asks to walk the dog every day now. Ruby is "all about me!" and doesn't care WHO is holding the leash


Still it was nice watching them strut down the street. Ruby looking up him like "you do know you're way back right? I can't believe she let you out!" ...while he chatters away at her.

he's definitely a dog lover, cat lover, furry, fanged, and tiny foot lover... like his mother.


He wants to be a vet some day. So I help him practice. I have him diagnose the animals before I take him to the vets, give me his opinion and then I tell him what the vet said when I get back to see how close he was
He listens with a wise nod like "yes...yes.. a tinker toy splint and purple booties, yes that's what I've done." LOL!
