The first time I saw a harness (and by harness I mean a back pack with a rope attached to it and dangling in which the mom would hold or tie around her wrist) I was shocked. I remember telling my mom that it was so wrong and some dogs don't even wear leashes. I was about 10. Fifteen years later and times have changed. Just last week a 7 year old almost got abducted in Walmart by a murderer whom just got out of jail. If she wasn't taught to scream and kick God only knows what would have happened.
I started thinking about Disney World. It is extremely crowded at Christmas time and that would be when we would go because of vacations and it being our favorite time of the year. I thought about how more comfortable I would be knowing that if my daughter's hand slipped from mine in a large crowd that I would still have a hold on the rope that was attached to the backpack she was wearing.
What are your thoughts?
