Looks like a little tent.
Honestly, how cute is he?
When we got to the park I left Luke in the back of the Xterra until I got the stroller back together. I told Luke as I struggled to put it together that I would get faster with each time. Once done I let Luke out and we walked a good way with him out of the stroller. He loves his walks, lifting his leg and smelling everything in sight. But when he started to drag his feet (literally) I rolled the stroller onto the grass and began the "getting Luke in" process.
I tried just asking him to get in, wasn't happening. I tried coaxing him with treats that I tossed into it, wasn't happening. He was not going to get in himself; as I already knew would happen. I zipped up the back section and opened up the front. He was going to have to be put in; not something I wanted to do but at 14 years of age he's pretty set in his ways. I scooped him up and backed him into it and lay him down. He let out a few stressed huffs and I told him to stay, which he surprisingly did. I thought that he'd be on his feet and trying to get out immediately.
I zipped up the screen and off we went. The stroller wheels and turns beautifully. I stopped many times to give Luke treats while he tolerated his ride. He was slightly stressed; but mostly miffed by the whole thing. He didn't enjoy it at all. At one point he sat up and stuck his head out the window; which made me happy to see him moving around inside. I kept the first outing short and sweet; well maybe not so sweet but short.
Back at Xterra I very calmly let him out the front and he got very goofy; huffing with happiness to be out of the stroller. Our first excursion complete; he survived and I was happy that he didn't freak out. I had thought the minute that I started to move; he'd freak out, but he didn't. He didn't even care when I had to lean the stroller back a bit to go up the sidewalk. All in all a good first trip out for Luke. I got an injury on our first trip; I pinched my finger a good one when putting the stroller together and was bleeding everywhere. I'd got a really hard pinch which created a blood blister that burst.
I'll get better at this, it's just going to take some time.
