Riley aka “my little senior citizen” doesn’t go for walks anymore. After Bella passed away he stopped walking. We have tried multiple tricks to get him to go for a walk, but he will just sit down in the middle of the road and refuse to walk or wait to get back in the truck. The last time we went to the park he enjoyed a treat in the backseat and watched all of the other dogs go for walks.
Yesterday I was walking over to a neighbor’s house to pick up vegetables from their garden. I decided to cut down through some of the yards so I told Riley he could come with me without his leash. Apparently we do enjoy walking…we just don’t want to wear our leash! That little man ran down over the hill through the neighbor’s yard to join me. Once in the neighbor’s yard he explored several additional yards before making the trip back up the hill to our house. Rufus is still trying to figure out how Riley got on the other side of the fence!
