Magic and his vest
I've been taking Magic out here and there to various locales. Yesterday we went to Hubbard Avenue Diner in Middleton to have breakfast with Jeff & Aaron. They had immediate seating for 2 so Jeff and Aaron (who needed breakfast) took it. Magic and I sat in the front waiting area. He laid down and accepted treats from me and pets from everyone else. Was great until it was time to move. Magic does not like to walk with the vest on - it's so funny because that will be his job someday. He'll just flop down in the middle of a walkway and put his head on his paws. I can lure him a little ways with a treat, but I don't want that to become a habit. Later we went to the bowling alley with some friends and got the same response. It took us 5 minutes to get from the door to where we were sitting. But then he was great and lay down and took a nap, even had kids coming by to pet him. I'm guessing it will get better with time and practice.
