The village festival provides a number of new experiences for a young puppy. In addition to the carnival, we attended the parade today. Hobey was unfazed by the gunshots, sirens, drums, and animals. He was more stressed by the half mile walk to and from the parade route. So tired, he cried and rested in the shade the whole way home.
As I mentioned the other day, our little man is 26 pounds. Although he is not too big to wedge himself under our bed, he is too big to get out by himself. We heard him crying this afternoon, and found him stuck under the bed, asking for help. We will determine his I.Q. based on how many more times he needs to be rescued.
