I hated the collar
It occurred to me recently how pleasurable walking my dog has become. I remember those first 6 months of having this dog. The pulling, the sore shoulders, the pain, wondering what the heck I was doing with this dog. I had wanted this dog to be my walking companion, but I was having second thoughts. The big change was discovering in the spring of 2011 that she did better being walked on her harness. She doesn't pull nearly as much.

Now, unless there is a squirrel or another dog (and not even any dog, just some other dogs), walks are a joy.

She has grown up to be a good dog!


  1. Oh to just get a look at a squirrel!
    Best wishes Molly

  2. What a beautiful picture! Glad to hear she's got the walking mastered....I'm looking forward to the day Bailey gets it too :)

  3. Yay! Walking is fun (wait...only in the spring/fall).

  4. Lee loves walking in all weather but pouring rain!

  5. Wakling is great, lots of stuff to see, Sidebite leads and goes from side to side, me I following or walk beside dad and try to stop all the time and smell stuff.
