We tried taking Piko for his first walk yesterday. Here he is, trying out Drew’s backpack. He didn’t stay in there for long.
While Piko has had many trips to the beach and to visit our friends, we haven’t been able to walk him on a leash until now. It’s really hard to have a puppy in Tonga.
Piko has to stay in our yard all day on a long leash, as we are worried about the other dogs/traffic/him being stolen or eaten. There is a lot of neighbourhood interest in Piko. Hence, why he needs to stay in our yard. Our yard is fairly big so as soon as we come home and before we leave, he has plenty of time to sniff and explore and dig.
Piko really liked his first walk. We had to keep carrying him past the mean scary dogs but once we got to the waterfront, he took off running. It was so exciting that he was all tuckered out as soon as we got home and needed to cuddle his monkey.
