Today Chester visited his buddy Andy (name change) for their half hour of occupational therapy.

One of the things Andy had on his chart was to ride the two-wheeler around the indoor hallway loop.
Andy is learning to ride a bicycle, it’s a slow, challenging process, figuring out how to balance on two skinny tires when balancing is already difficult. So far Andy’s been able to sit on the seat, putting one foot on a pedal, one foot on the floor. Push, glide, push, glide. Balance.
Today, Rebecca, his therapist chose the blue two-wheeler. Andy wanted the red tricycle, it was easier, safer. He got angry, “NO! NO!” He stomped away, turning in circles.
I draped Chester’s red leash over the silver handlebar. Chester sat and waited.
