Clayton, Spenser, Scooter, Sherman and Stanley: then and now.

January 26, 2010

We took the boys to the dog park on Sunday. First time for Stanley. Phillip kept him on the leash as we entered the gate and before you know it there were four or five big dogs on hand to welcome us. Stanley freaked. Phillip scooped him up and I said, "we gotta get out of here now!" As we were reversing our steps out the gate, one of the dog owners came over to us. "Take off the leash and try it again," he recommended, "he'll be okay." Wasn't that nice? So we did, and Stanley did MUCH better. I can't say that he loved it, but he did a little bit of chasing and a great deal of sniffing. And Sherman (predictably now) found his group of little girls and called it a day. Can you say "chick magnet?"
