This was a busy weekend for Jack. On Friday, a visit to Grandma in the nursing home. In the past, Jack has shown fear towards wheelchairs, so I mostly keep him close and confined while visiting, but much to my surprise he quickly befriended three dog-loving men, two of them wheelchair users. He was very polite and behaved well for the visit.
Saturday we visited the pet store. Jack was pretty riled up by everything, but he was kept under control without much effort. I very nearly bought him a nice harness, but alas, shortage of funds led to us leaving with only cat food.
Sunday was absolutely beautiful. It hasn't snowed lately and it was unseasonably warm and sunny today, so I took him walking on DNR land. On the way back from hike that involved unauthorized ice skating and chasing bunnies, we walked right into a man and his two Golden Retrievers, Rocky and Lily. They said hello to me, and all three dogs promptly tore off in the direction of the cars in a flurry of fluffy tails and Golden smiles. I admit that I'm pretty proud that I'm the owner of the well-behaved dog with the impeccable recall, not the one screaming commands to no avail. Jack has grown up a lot!
