Mystic Mango Smoothie

Okay, I geared up and took Tiko to town, walking, I mean. I haven’t taken him in a couple months, walking around the town, because the pull of the other dogs is so great, and the pull of Tiko on me even worse!

But I kept repeating, “Leave it, leave it,” whenever we chanced upon another dog, and we did pretty good, thanks to the new leather harness. He laid down under the table, where I was having a smoothie, and took a nap at my friend’s house. So all in all, a good trip! Now maybe I can teach him to come teach Tai Chi with me!

Tip of the Day – Don’t worry about your dogs in Ecuador. They are loved, free most of the time, and welcomed in many places. The people kind of fear my German Shepherd, but I think it’s because the police use them, as well. And Tiko’s teeth are pretty sharp-looking!
