We went jogging with Mojo today. It's kind of sad that he can run longer than I can. I'm a lot bigger than he is, though.

One thing I noticed is that walking on pavement (or jogging on the sidewalk) really files down his nails. They're smooth and evenly worn from our jog.

Mojo's getting more and more off-leash practice. It's not really off-leash, since the leash is still attached to him...it's just there's nothing at the end of the leash. It really is more relaxing not to have to hold onto the leash all the time, and it's kind of neat to be able to control (vaguely) your dog at a short distance. If he's walking too fast you can say "wait" and he'll slow down. Cluck a few times and he'll stop, or at least look back at you. Any kind of noise, really, and he'll slow down and wait for you to catch up.

If he gets excited, well, that's another story. He's been pretty good so far, but there hasn't been anything in front of him that he's wanted to chase.

One good thing about our constant training (class without end?) is he'll stay for a really long time without being able to see either of us. We can walk away and he'll stay. Of course, there aren't any distractions around when he does this. If there were other people we're not sure what he'd do. Probably go say hi :)

Tomorrow's his last PetSmart class. Last time they didn't have any of those graduation hats handy; maybe we'll have some nice pictures of Mojo during his graduation!
