Sometimes, you feel like walking with the pack:



Sometimes, you don’t.

    … Rusty’s quite the nut,
    He does what he wants.

    (We couldn’t think of a good rhyme.)

    I am a non-conformist too! The best way to be! Think outside the pack!

    Everypup has to express themselves sometimes. Just sayin’.

    Sometimes you just want to mess with Mom trying to keep the leashes straighten out!

    Be careful Rusty that you don’t jump off to the left side.

    And if the pup should fall, there are two cushions right beneath! No worries !

    You need a rolling carriage for the pack to pull you!

    I once had a search and rescue dog who had training climbing on every kind of thing imaginable. During walks, she’d spontaneously jump on top of wooden fences and walk them like balance beams – we sure got some funny looks. So, I love non-conformists like yours!

    He almost looks like he is plotting his separation in the first two photos. We love how he even looks like he is “strutting” up there, so proud of himself. Enjoy the weekend.
