So, midweek, my oldest son phoned to see if we would be home last weekend (as if we ever aren't home) and if any of the sibs with dogs would be here. When he received answers of yes and no, he announced that he and Ashleigh would be coming up with the baby. They are going on a working vacation in late May, and he wanted to "test drive" the baby for 3 hours to see how she'd react.
OK, I don't need any excuses; just bring her to visit. We'll be happy to see you, too.
She spent lots of time with Grandpa, AKA The Great Red Protector. Everyone knows he's a friend to children and dogs. And look at the ears on that hood.
