Darwin Learns the Treadmill

Darwin arrived at my mother's house back in February, and he has settled in perfectly. He's a quiet, well-behaved, and very friendly little man. Mom says Darwin walks around the dog park with all the haughty royalty of a King born to the throne. Nice! 

The latest development is that my mother has him burning up excess energy with a half hour on the treadmill. My mom has her coffee next to the treadmill, Darwin walks, and then they go off together to the park for a little play and happy socialization time. Not a bad life!

Darwin is still a little unsure of the treadmill, but he is quickly gaining confidence. The treadmill will speed up soon enough. He's at 2 miles per hour now, but will manage three or four easily when he gets a bit more confidence. The goal here is to get him on the treadmill for a half hour a day twice a day. He looks to be well on his way!

Catching up on your blog. Sorry for your recent loss.
Darwin repeatedly looks at the white label on either
side of the treadmill band. Maybe blacking that out
would help?
