It's the Climb by ibjennyjenny It's the Climb by ibjennyjenny
~Ain't about how fast I get there
Ain't about what's waiting on the other side...
It's the climb~

This is Mikey on his first day outside with his harness which you can't even see because of his long hair. He won't walk with it on yet, he takes two steps and then he rolls over on his side. He will catch on soon enough. For those who don't know, Mikey was born deaf and we live in mountain lion country so allowing him outside alone is not an option. Mikey has an outside cage that connects to our house by a long tunnel, he enjoys it but I can see his desire to check things out so I went out and got a harness with a long leash, figured it was worth a shot.

On this day Mikey was rolling around in the dirt right next to one of our huge pine trees, he kept looking up the tree and it was as if he was saying "Someday".

Somehow, I have to figure out how to make this happen because my little boy wants to climb.

Thats an awesome shot Jen. He'll figure it all out one day.

How wonderful to be able to give him this chance of stepping out further! Nice shot too.

We tried harnessing our two way back, so that they could go beyond their boundaries, but they walked backwards or just lay down and wouldn't play ball. Next time we tried putting the harnesses on them, they scratched us so much in their struggle not to have them that we gave it all up as a bad lot! :giggle:
