Yesterday we got Al a new toy, and, like all the other toys he has, he loves it and was SO excited to get it. This morning on our walk we encountered a cat. He was a little hesitant about approaching it, so I tried to keep him going like it was no big deal. I didn't get to close to the cat and when we turned around he tried to run, but was unsuccessful because I kept a tight grip on his leash. I think cats are the only thing that he is afraid of.
