Dante loves, loves, loves his walks. He is always so happy and well behaved - checking in with me every minute or two.
There were really cute book sculptures behind the library where we were. We took some time to pose and practice a few of his commands.
|He doesn't really know the "up" command yet, but I have practiced luring him up a few times. He loves it as you can tell!|
|Good literature choice, D! (and nice "jump" and "sit" as well!)|
And then there were the bestest ever benches to practice "under" and "jump" (albeit a little distracted!) on - nice and sturdy with solid footing for him!
We finished the park loop, stopping to do some "jumps" on this drain.
|The closest to a head tilt I'm ever gonna get outta this boy :-)|
We walked along the busier road some before stopping at the playground. Dante sat nicely while I was on the swing set and then got to do his most favorite thing:
The dog LOVES the slide! We then walked up on the playground. I sat on one of the steps and Dante immediately jumped onto me in a "lap" and snuggle up against my shoulder. it was the sweetest thing! And there was no way I could have corrected him for doing it off command. We sat there for almost ten minutes snuggling. Goodness, I'm gonna miss this little stinker! ;-) My only request is that his forever person appreciates his stellar snuggling skills! :-)
These are my favorite times with Dante - just him and me with nobody stopping us to talk, and just having fun!
