Today we took delivery of our Stroller. I put it together myself, and decided straight away to let Finlay have a “test push”. So I packed Scotties and Stroller into the car and drove the 5 minutes to our local reservoir. Finlay was quite happy walking about and at first I thought I would be pushing an empty stroller around the reservoir. Couldn’t figure out which would be more embarrassing: pushing an empty stroller, or pushing a dog in a stroller. Needn’t have worried because a little while later Finlay started to slow down and when I asked him if he wanted an “hup-hup” he crouched down in readiness to be picked up.
At first he kept looking over his shoulder, up at me wondering what was happening, but within minutes he realised just what an advantage he had over Bobby – he could see a lot more – and he settled into being “pushed” as if he was born to it. And feeling embarrassed? Not at all, everyone we met just wanted to cuddle my little man – so a successful first trip all in all.
Can’t wait to try out one of our other routes.
