Low 50s today so even more dogs to contend with on our mid-day walk. We're handling the dogs that pass us pretty well; Zorro even managed to endure a curious black and white beagle who stopped and stared before iPod-wearing owner hustled him along.
But because it was so nice out, we encountered some slow dogs, even though we were on the purposeful path. And those are always a problem. Zorro will sit--although not always happily--while another dog passes us, but I don't think he's ready to pass another dog. Especially a slow one. So we have to find workarounds.
In other news, I have trained Zorro to play fetch! If I throw his tennis ball, he will get it and bring it back. But so far, it's always in exchange for a treat. Zorro is a very results-oriented dog.
