Bought new hiking shoes from the nearby Timberland store so I can trek with young Master Benny, the 2-time runaway hound. Got good use out of them yesterday when we took a 45 minute walk in rough field terrain. He definitely loves breathing in the new smells and checking out the rabbit population.
He was super well behaved over the weekend, even when our niece dropped by to meet him. He really enjoyed taking dog biscuits from her and he definitely enjoys the petting and cuddles he's getting from everyone!
Needless to say, we're all holding on to his leash unusually strongly lately, and securing any open doorways leading to the outside world whenever he's nearby.
Last night was the first night he didn't use our cream carpeting as his restroom, instead waiting until this morning to do his business like the wonderful boy he is.
Stay tuned for more updates as they become available ;)
