And by Jack I mean Petal and by candlestick I mean bench.
Every morning Petal and I go for a long morning walk, as many of you know, and I often enjoy stopping by one of the small parks/visitor’s center in our area and having Petal jump over the benches. The benches at this park don’t have backs so they make for pretty good jumps.
Yes, she did hit her paw on the bench with this jump, but she was fine and recovered quickly. I encouraged her to do just one final jump and made sure she was lined up just right so it wouldn’t happen again. I wanted to end our little jumping session on a successful note and I didn’t want to make a huge deal about her hitting her paw, then she’d be afraid. So we did one last, successful, jump and then called it a day. Petal came home a happy and well exercised girl!
