Whenever I bring Bubba out and ‘leash’ him with his favourite Lion ‘bag’, people will give me the ‘Look at the crazy mom! What is she doing to her child? Is that a child or a dog?’ kind of look without fail. I am often mistaken as a bad mother but this is my ‘tame the tiger’ technique to teach my little Bubba how to behave and not go missing or be kidnapped by strangers.
Many people are mistaken that I leash Bubba and restrict his movement but they are wrong, I am still letting him walk where he wants to go. Only difference is I am connected to him by a line (or leash) and I know where he will be. This deters kidnappers from kidnapping him and selling him away for his organs or to couples who can’t conceive. I reckoned I must have heard too many horror stories and I am making extreme precautionary measures from letting bad things happen to bubba! Would you do the same as mother?
