these boys are so adorable and full of energy. often time my runner (ezra) will quickly take off from me, and everett will go the opposite direction. i have to quickly gauge which one is in more imminent danger to determine which crazy human i will run after first. however, this is simply not a risk i am willing to take anymore. i can't let them be free birds until they become a bit more rationale. after the park the other day when i was cautiously guarding the large openings they have in the jungle gym near the top of the slide, ezra slid down quickly and bolted for the street while everett was climbing the stairs to the top of the slide. obvi i slide down and run for ezra in time to turn and see everett precariously dangling near said hole high above the ground. i made it to him in time, but gheeze la wheeze. i promptly went home and ordered some harnesses.
rather, he threw himself down and started throwing rocks when he saw me holding the tether
but they are tolerant when i don't hold them back.
