fun at the park..sorta

It was a beautiful day today! We took Mico to the park for some sunshine, fresh air and running. He wants to run a lot but we just don't have a big enough back yard for him sometimes. So, what does he do? He sits.I thought it would also be a good opportunity to try to teach him to walk on a lead. We were using a harness but he hated it and getting it off and on him was difficult. So I picked up a collar the other day. It is adjust to the smallest setting and it is still too big for him. Shh, don't tell him he can get out of it if he really wanted to.

If you look closely at the above picture you will also notice that his left ear is almost in the standing position. Not sure what is up (or down) with the right ear.

Cortney wants to do some agility stuff with Mico so we have been doing some pretraining. Like going over and under. We thought we would try the slide at the park and he liked it!

Of course he stopped to pick up everything in the grass and try to eat it.

He still fights the lead sometimes, but not as badly as when he has the harness on.

These dogs were SO excited to see him! Mico was a bit interested in them but would not get close. He seemed to know they were a lot bigger. They were friendly, but I wouldn't have let Mico get close to them. It was just interesting to see how he reacted.

Violet manages to get out of her collar every time we go to the girl. Mico is just too cute...really. As for the Cheetos...he has discriminating taste.
