It's been a few weeks, but Pongo and I finally made it out of the house for an afternoon. It felt good to get out into the open air.

Pongo jumped out of the car window again. This is the second time he's done that, both at San Luis and both incidents happened within a few hundred yards of one another. Last time he went after ducks that quacked at him. This time he leaped after a ground squirrel. It happened very quickly. I keep a long leash on him when we're driving with his window open and I never go more than ten miles an hour, still it was a little frightening. I was worried about him getting under the wheels but he was fine. I told him not to do it again, but we'll see. I want to keep the window down for him because he enjoys the drives so much, but I sure don't want him to get hurt.

Demeanors? Spell check says no. Dunno. I should dig up a dictionary. I guess I could google it, but I'm too lazy.
Anyway, it was a nice afternoon. I just have to talk Pongo into keeping himself in the car while we're driving around the loop.
