A breakthrough

This morning, early, I took Memphis out for a walk. Last evening, Tuffy P and I took her out and with lots of encouragement, she was able to overcome her fear of leaving the property on the leash. This morning, Memphis was a little reluctant, but once we got going, she enjoyed a good long walk. We met up with a couple dogs along the way. There are a lot of dogs in this area, so even at 6:00 a.m. you're likely to see some.

We walked over to Sam Smith park, up the hill behind the water treatment plant, down the other side, and across to the path. Then we turned back toward home, but at Twenty-third, we walked north to Iris, then across to Twenty-fifth, then north again. Twenty-fifth is one street over from our place, and when we were parallel to our house, Memphis stopped and wanted to take a short-cut through the backyard of our neighbour. Instead, we continued north to Alder, and across to Twenty-seventh and south back home.
