I broke down and got a Gentle Leader the other day.
For the longest time I held off, for multiple reasons.
Way back when, before we got Hadrian, I swore I would never need a gentle leader or even a choke collar because “I’d have the best dog ever.” Ha! Yes, I really said that. (I was obviously in la-la land.). Also, gentle leaders resemble muzzles, and I didn’t want anyone to think Hadrian was vicious and in need of muzzling. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Anyway, I finally came to terms with the fact that this 120-lb dog wasn’t fun to walk anymore. Not that he pulled me down the street, but God help me every time a squirrel ran across our path!
Well, after just two walks it’s a totally different experience. I even splurged on a matching leash. Gotta be fashionable, ya know!
