Since we haven’t gone on therapy visits for a while, I think Jacoby has missed going out for walks. On our way home from seeing Santa at Petco, he got so excited when we got to the Broadway Bridge.
He recognises the bridge as part of his “territory” – which seems to be defined as the area outside that he knows how to get home from. This is where he’ll hop out of the stroller and start walking.
The bridge is definitely part of his self-defined territory. Even when we’re in a car, when he sees it, he starts getting antsy.
He knows he’s close to home and he wants to walk!
Luckily, it was a warm, almost 50° day, so all he needed was his fleece hoodie and his feet didn’t get cold on the pavement.
Jake seemed so happy to be out walking. Look at his happy tail!
After a while, Jake decides he’s tired of walking, and he hops back into his stroller.
He especially likes riding down the ramp at the end of the bridge.
He doesn’t mind sharing his stroller with a shopping bag, either.
As we get closer to our building, he’ll decide he wants to walk again.
You can tell he knows where he’s going! He even knows how to cross the little side street next to our building (not that I let him actually cross the street – he gets carried)!
He actually stopped right below our living room windows. He knows this is our building, but I doubt he knows that he was standing right underneath the window where Angel was napping.
Okay, Jake…let’s go back home and take off our coats.
