Tonight, as I was walking Rocky, we were on the sidewalk when a micro-dog (chihuahua) came running out of a garage barking and ran across the street at us. Rocky saw him and instead of immediately lunging for him, he actually BOWED like a playful act toward the tiny dog, and he barked, but he more pranced back and forth instead of pulling like a crazy dog. I consider this progress in his training and tolerance toward other dogs. Now, why on earth anyone would have their dog loose where he can run across a street at a dog, I have no clue. But, we just kept walking and I kept telling Rocky how good he was being for settling down so soon.
