About one week ago my pawrents received a brand new pink harness in the mail for me!! They bought it on Amazon and we all love it!
I used to have one when they first brought me home but I guess I gained a couple of pounds…. what can I say, food is GOOD. This new harness came in and of course I was instantly attracted to the packaging it came in. I wrestled the harness out of it real good. I showed that package who was boss!
My dad fed me some tasty whitefish treats while my momma wrapped the new harness around me. It felt like a snug hug but to be honest it kind of made me freeze. I wasn’t too sure if I even needed this thing. I mean come on why would I ever run away from my pawrents? Who else would give me tasty treats??? But they really insisted on it so I gave it a go. It is super comfy how it fits like a shirt rather than those strappy ones that pinch my pits. I will have to say though that these harnesses need to be sent with walking instructions! My mom and dad could not stop giggling when I finally felt comfortable to walk. I felt like one of those drunk party girls you see in movies. My legs felt different almost as if they were heavier or something. I just couldn’t get the hang of it but it didn’t really bother me. I knew if I wore it they would bring me outside to see my squirrel furriends!!
The time finally came when my pawrents thought I could take my first steps outdoors. They brought me to my grandpawrents house on the lake where I got to explore the water and the adventure around. When we first got outside I think I got a little too overwhelmed that I ran into my mommas arms. I always feel safe there, especially in new places. My momma gave me so much encouragement that I was finally able to start walking outside on my leash!!!!! My first few steps were pawmazing! I saw a big ole fluffy squirrel and all I wanted was to play with him but I guess he had to go back to his family. So my pawrents and I took a walk down to the dock. I really enjoyed the wind blowing in my fur and the slight rocking of the dock as the waves passed by. Life was good. I felt great. I love my new harness and without it I wouldn’t be able to explore the world with my family. This small adventure was only the beginning…. As my confidence grows so will my territory.
