But honestly, he uses a short leash because anything else wraps around the back of the scooter...and John cannot PHYSICALLY get the leash untangled...and will get annoyed if he can't get Sawyer loose (which would completely change Sawyer's behavior...)
Just picking your brain!
(FYI...for normal use, he uses a short leash, and if Sawyer needs to move out away from him, he takes the leash off the arm of the scooter and lets Sawyer go with the leash draped on his back...essentially "off-leash).
That's a great point, Erin....there is a specific REASON that John has to use a short leash...and, in my opinion, a much better reason than why Cy or Nisha would lunge after gunfire...
