"Tyson has been around skateboards his entire life... When he was out on walks, he would go nuts anytime a skateboarder would pass by him. We originally misinterpreted this excitement for fear or hatred as he would jump and lunge at people on their boards (now, of course, we know that he was simply trying to catch a ride).
After six months, when he was about a year old, we let him play with a skateboard in the backyard. Before we knew it, he was riding it."
