My older grandsons like to earn a little spending money; and a favorite way to pick up a quick buck from grandma is to walk the dog. Since I had an extra dog all last week (my oldest son was traveling), there were plenty of cash-earning opportunities.
Darren (at 18 months) must think he is as big as his cousins. He had been watching my older grandsons walking the dogs and decided to try it himself. He got the idea of grabbing the leash handle, but even this little Jack Russell was to speedy and strong for him to hold onto. We let him ride along in his stroller and "help" hold the leash and that seemed to satisfy him.
