What is a good story about Larkin Wilde from this week?
I had Larkin at the park the other day and I needed to go to my car real fast and I didn’t have a leash. (Long story) She fussed all the way to my car perfectly! She was proud of herself!!
Today I took Larkin to the the dog park. We both got thirsty. We walked back to the car but by the time we got out of the gate I didn’t have a leash. She fussed perfectly. I still can’t believe that Larkin is nine months old and I actually walked her in a real-world situation perfectly without a leash. I am so proud of her. FYI I didn’t even have the ball it was back at the park with the leash!
