Places to socialize your puppy-college graduation ceremonies!
Now that we have 4 dogs, we can have Home and Away teams. This weekend we had an important event that required 2 teams.
Commencement for the Class of 2014! Gustavo and Ruby had to stay home. They might not love this, but they don't cause any trouble. They are pretty chill and neither of them bark or howl. That I know of. Sleuthwork did uncover a chewie buried in the half dead ficus tree in the living room, but aside from that I think they just slept away the day.
The Away team came along. Yes, I am the kooky relative who wears sneakers at all times and brings dogs everywhere.
I brought along Banksy's mananger. The Otterpop/Banksy combo is turning into a weird little unit. I think Banksy is making Otterpop a kinder, gentler Otterpop for some reason. I'm not sure why, but I'm definitely not complaining.
We had a lot of opportunities for walks around the campus.
Because this took a long time. Banksy's learned to chill in the car, this is a very useful skill if you are my dog. Because we spend a lot of time in the car.
College graduation, a VERY good place for socializing! Banksy met about 200 new friends, many of them wearing long black robes, high heels, and funny hats with dog toys dangling from them. At this point, she just assumes EVERYBODY wants to meet her. Usually they do. Exactly 100% of people who want to meet her are 100% sure she's a husky. Who knew that having a husky puppy was such a chick/dude/old person/young person/kid/homeless person/cop/etc and so forth, magnet? She had a fine time.
